going from 340 to 450 lbs is not that great a change but if you like aluminum heads and manifold along with some shorty headers will save some pounds. Using the aod is a good idea as you can get a complete package from a donor ford product and just go ahead with the swap..myself i would not loose any sleep over the weight difference as those cars handle well and are sturdy in their construction..
