Just scrapped a cast iron 4 bolt main Gen I SBC Block, had main caps & freeze plugs other wise bare. It was 150 pounds.

Scaled my new LS3 crate motor yesterday. To get a comparison with the engine that came out of my car I 1) drained the sump (yes, new crate motor comes full!), 2) removed oil filter, 3) removed flex plate. 393.4 lbs.

RIF - reading is fundamental.... " '82 Volvo 242---5.0L is gone, 6.2L coming soon!" What's a "Pontiac"? LOL Here - it's clear you need to look at pictures...

Nice Volvo Michael. Very creative. Don't mind the natives.

As for the 4.8/5.3 cast iron blocks... is it safe to assume they weight about as much as the 6.0's? If not a bit more due to the smaller bore size.

Nice editing trick there slick. Now it appears everyone else is talking to themselves and you weren't slinging around insults and acting like a complete *** for no reason. You sir are a genius.

Wanting an answer to the weight of a lightened LS engine block has lead me to LSM systems engineering. I've sent them an e-mail twice, but got no respond... anybody got an idea of the weight or who to contact?
