cncdoc Posted December 27, 2003 Share Posted December 27, 2003 I had a chance to use an industrial scale today so I thought I would weigh my 13B (this is for those of you who are building or using a 13B) This is a 1990 EFI high compression engine non-turbo. The specs say it developes 160 HP around 5700 RPM stock. Straight out of the car but without starter, distributor, alternator, air pump and associated brackets, with manifolds and everything else: 306 LBS Now, I took off everything but the water pump and flywheel (manual transmission): 215 LBS (picture) Drain the oil and water, take off oil filter and flywheel: 190 LBS (Scratching head) Take off water pump and oil pump housing 175 LBS Maybe something is living inside of the engine that weighs about 20 lbs. Are these weights as advertised? Or do I suspect a little stretching of the weights (some women do that, guys too I guess, but women are more known for it...saying they weigh less than they do....) I am thinking that with all the right stuff added back on (no turbo) I may squeeeeek by at 275 not counting fluids. Thoughts anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Freezing in Ohio at the moment..
