I searched the forums and could find this.
Does anyone know the weight of a 2.1 waterboxer w/ exhaust still attached and mostly assembled except intake?
I am trying to ship one and I need the weight, and have no way to measure it.
Thanks!

That number is typical Dylan bullshit. Engine and pallet together runs 260-290 lbs.

Yeah, I wondered. But then I decided that if the exhaust is still attached and everything, as the OP was asking, it might push it up to the 475 range. TenCent says later in the thread that 260# is for the long block only with crate. So, I don't think the exhaust and ancillaries weigh 200 pounds. I know it didn't cost that much to have mine shipped from VC (exhaust system). Op, sorry for any mis-direction.
