Re: saginaw 4 speed vs munice 4 speed in weight

Just took out a saginaw and put in a muncie m20...i never weighed them but from carrying them it has to be at least a 25+ difference. I know the saginaw is made of steel and the muncie aluminum.

69 X-44 Camaro, slowly upgrading to my liking...Hmmm, i guess i'll never be done
2002 Camaro LE SS...Many upgrades

Re: saginaw 4 speed vs munice 4 speed in weight

If you are considering switching to the muncie because it's lighter, based on that alone, the advantage would be negligible. Strength, yes, the muncie has it. For a cruiser like mine the saginaw's one advantage may be that you have more gearing options due to a wider range of gear sets.

I think the Muncie weighs about 85 lbs and the Saginaw weighs about 120 lbs or so.
