    Default Weight of alloy head & manifolds?

    Anyone got a good estimate/guess of how much the average 4 cyl head and manifolds would weigh?

    Something like a 505 GTI head & manifolds...

    R16 OK? I'll do it in a moment.

    No rocker cover or rockers. Valves and springs fitted, cast manifolds installed (alloy intake, iron exhaust). No carby.

    A shade under 19kg.

    OK I missed the OHC bit. I was thinking it. . Thanks for the R16 though, gives me a ballpark.

    (I've hefted a half-dozen heads off various cars, I'm just useless at estimating weights.)

    The alloy intake manifold sitting in my room off a 505 STi is approx 5.5kgs, guesstimate on a head (that I moved on the weekend) is about the same as a case of beer (or less) so 12-15kgs, and a cast exhaust maybe 3-4kgs........

    Dont know if that helps??
