    engine weight

    Anyone know off hand how much a porsche motor (without the tranny and with or without oil) weighs (I'd weigh mine but it is mid rebuild)?

    Oh, so you want to know, too.

    According to an early 911/2000 Brochure in my collection,

    Engine weight: approx 405 lbs complete without oil

    Transmission weight: approx 110 lbs complete WITH oil

    This is for the 1965 model year which means sand-cast aluminum cases and Solex carbs. The weight might have changed slightly with the changes to Webers and then to MFI. I think the eventual switch to magnesium cases saved something on the order of 20 to 40 lbs.
