+1 on the research... Here's some numbers to get you started

Disclaimer -- I don't vouch for these numbers just a general idea from a 5 minute search....

M20 total 385 lbs
S52 (maybe not including accessories?) 330lbs
M60 total weight 448 lbs
M70 with accessories 522 lbs

As you can see this will have a much greater impact than your 30lb sub box ( which you're still able to feel I'm sure)

Jut be prepared for stiffer CABs, big ass front sway bar and welded reinforcements, big ass motor mounts, big ass brakes, etc

That said, anythings possible if you put your mind (and wallet) into it and with a cf hood, ac delete etc you could save some weight

But with all the complications of bigger motor swaps I still think an S5x is still best bang/buck... Lol turbo it if it's not enough power
