I'm building a UMP modified and have a question regarding the bellhousing setup. What are the advantages of having an aluminum bellhousing with a rear mounted starter versus having a steel bellhousing with a front mounted starter? Any help is appreciated?

Thanks, Darren

The aluminum and rear mount starter is lighter and moves the weight of the starter back farther in the chassis for more rear%. And with the starter off the block its one less thing to mess with during engine swaps.

Thanks, The difference between the two options is about $175 at a local supplier... sounds like it'd be worth the cost.

Yes i'd say its definetly worth the cost unless you plan on running any IMCA in which you have to run a steel bellhousing i beleive.
