Generation IV External Engine - 6.2 engine weight
07-11-2012, 06:56 PM
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.

^^^ what he said, I want to say the iron block weighs around 70lbs more.

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

w/o acceseries should be less than 400 for just the longblock.

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

so im looking in the 400 range. sounds pretty light for as many cubes as these engines can produce
