It has be talked about before, but so far no manufacture has come forward with any offerings and I doubt they ever will.

yeah i igree with OHC the 2.3 is to old and really the only racing that regularly uses them that need an aluminum block is ministocks but they usually dont have the coin for a $5000 block. But if your dead set on having one im pretty shure DART cold make you a prototype if you have the cion that is

Dart? Well would the weight loss be worth it? Also will the block b strong enought for turbo? Is there a lighter option other than the stock block and aluminum?
