Whole New Front Clip worth it?

Hey guys I've got the 84 camaro Z28 H.O. and I was wondering if putting an entire fiberglass front clip on it will show a time difference in the quarter. right now everything is steel...the hood alone is 200lbs or so I just ordered a 4" cowl hood and I found the entire front end for 640 beans from a camaro supplier. would this be worth it?

Are you sure? that mighty heavy for a hood! i've never met a hood I couldnt lift with one hand (not saying they arent out there) you might want to re-check that.

Don't think you would save much weight with glass in your case. The 80s metal parts are quite thin and light. Check the difference between your fenders and a 55 Chevy for example............

Now, if you were going to cut off the whole front structure and put in a different front suspension etc, it might be different.
