How light can a SBF get? w/iron block.

Still trying to figure out the best engine and trans to install in my 66 Volvo Amazon. If I start out with a fairly stock SBF its weighs 450 lbs.
(correct me if I'm wrong)
The stock 4 banger is around 340.
Wondering if anyone has seen a chart with aluminum heads, headers etc.
lowers the weight?
Since I'll be adding also an ATM (AOD) the lower the weight up front the better.
Just in the planning stages.
Thoughts welcome!
