    I think he's gonna have to pull the motor to do a spark plug swap... Unless there is more space underneath.

    well that was one reason. The fact that the majority of the weight sits behind the front wheels makes it a little easier to throw around the track. It also has to do with the overall hieght of the hood and deck, compared to the front end. It's so low up front that the front package is tilted back almost 20 degrees. It's not as hard to work on as you would think though. I managed on both LT1 and LS1 versions fairly well.

    doubt there is much difference at all. Gen III and Gen IV small blocks are very light.

    Just fine, the engine doesn't weigh that much.

    ^this, and actually, the v8 is prolly lighter. The e46 m3 inline 6 weighs more than the LS series of engines, and I'd guess the same or equal for the e36 version.
