Boss Weight?

Does anyone know how much the Boss's Block weighs?
And what the entire engine weighs?

Thanks

Re: Boss Weight?

184 pounds = 83kgs....

So how did the BOSS 260 ute manage to get so fat (1800kgs) compared to the AU II XR8 utes (1670kgs)?

Imagine 260kw in a 1670kg ute........mmmmmmmmmm....

Re: Boss Weight?

The stroke is longer so the block is taller, and the dohc heads have a lot more metal in them. Besides the engine the body strength was upgraded and also they now have a lap-sash belt in the centre seat, and I wouldn't even be surprised to see the dash weighs more.

Re: Boss Weight?

So the only advantage an all alloy BOSS would have over the current BOSS would be 43Kg....Does an alloy block have any other advantages other than weight?
