I need a hanging scale for my engine hoist so I can tell you how much the 2jz weighs. Who sells one?

I pulled the 2JZ-GTE. Then went to walmart for some $5.97 bathroom scales. I weighed it rather creatively. Who can host pics?

Fascinating info, but..

Can we get the engine wieghts without tranny, and with various other tranny types. Not just the manuals. I wonder what the weight difference is.

I can't find my specific motor listed on the linking pages. This is the closest match, even though it's an 86.

Chevy small block V8 575 (generic for '60s-'70s motors)


Also, I'm assuming these measurements don't include accesories like vacuum pump / canister and egr set up or air conditioner unless specified for any of these set ups. Does it include fuel delivery and/or exhaust manifolds?

L28 complete with stock manifolds, SU's, and A/C compressor + 5 spd 523lbs OR Chevy SB (All Iron) Alone 575 lbs + T56 Six Speed

I thought there was 125 pounds difference not a mere 52. It doesn't sound so hard to get rid of 52 pounds of extra weight.

The problem is that even the references in that list rarely list the exact trim or dress of the engine. When I put my 406 together with heads, I'll see if I can find a way to weigh it and give all the details about what exactly is there, with photos.

Adding the T56 weight (140 lbs from that list I linked to) to the 575 gives 715 lb
total, compared to the L6 and 5spd at 523 lbs. Quite a difference.

But most people go to AL heads with the SBC, as well as AL intake and wp. So 575 is a bit heavier than most SBC installs in the Z. Also note how light the Ford T5 is compared to the T56. 78 lbs vs 140 lbs. Another reason I'd go with the G-force upgraded T-5 versus the T56.

If a SBC with all aluminum parts but the block (and internals) weighs 525 lbs, and you add a 78 lb T-5, that's about 600 lbs. Not bad, and the additional weight is aft of where the L6-5spd weight is installed. There are driver weight differences greater than 75 lbs :).

756- ~10 lbs for wood and that give 746 lbs. I am struggling to make the front of the car lighter. The massive radiator and intercooler are not helping. But the 22 gallon fuel cell is helping in the back. The cars weight is 2505 lbs with 7 gallons of fuel.

Darn, I saw that wood too. It might be more than ten pouds though.
