Default 6.2 engine weight

I apologize if this has been asked before but I'm looking at doing a 6.2 swap into my foxbody coupe and was curious to what this engine weighs. I google searched ls1tech and couldn't find the answer.

I will be doing a carb swap since that will reflect the weight somewhat.
Thanks for the help

Aluminum LS series motors tend to be about 430ish lbs.

Just to add to the mix I have seen on a couple of sites that the LS3 motor weights #415. Take your pick.

I have put one on a game scale before, with PS pump and alt, no exhaust manifolds, it was ~425 lbs.
