At least 1oz of the weight difference will be due to the Elfin (lighter engine + less weight aft of the CG to compensate).
For me, it's a shame to use anything other than an Elfin in this type of model. As kids, I don't think we realised how much better than the competition they were.
About 25 years ago, I built (and finished!) an Eliminator, which I wanted to use in vintage competition, so I built it for an MVVS 1.5.
It turned out very nose heavy so, full of remorse and repentance, I decided to modify the nose to install an Elfin. Shamefully, that model is still in my box right now, unflown and still not modified for the Elfin... Oh dear!
