Aluminum AGD Valve body.

Not sure if this is allowed and not trying to steer anyone away from here, but there is a discussion thread going on over on AO regarding the possibility of an aluminum Classic style valve body coming to fruition. I have been wanting something like this for a couple of years now and the time MAY be coming. ?Due to costs, it is looking like this will be best geared towards anyone wanting to do a capped valve/external regulator setup that a few of us have done. Anyone interested in this, and a member of AO, please stop by and give your input and maybe make this happen!

Thanks.

would it be easier to just cap a classic valve as is? the weight between the front part of a SS classic valve wont be that much heavier than Aluminum front part of a classic valve will it? thats gonna be pretty expensive for a few ounces of weight reduction dont ya think???

is there a noticeable weight reduction? or is it only a few ounces? is it worth the cost for the few ounces? wait then you have to buy a regulator if you dont have one already...how much do those weigh...this seems like a very expensive mod just to be able to ano a valve???

oh yeah i know you can't ano SS...everybody knows that big Dawg?

As mentioned in the first post, it isnt a mod for everyone.

No need to debate the merits of it here. If you're not interested, cool. If you are, head on over.

These questions are discussed in the AO thread. Wasn't trying to be rude but wasn't looking at having two threads going on this. Anybody wants to discuss feel free to check it out.
