Question What does a 2.3 really weigh?

Does anyone know how much a 2.3 Ford engine weighs? I have been told over 400 pounds and I have a hard time beliving that as I have pulled these 2.3 engines out of several cars and trucks in the past. Any accurate info?

Thanks,
Clayton

Thats cool and thanks but they rate the iron Lima 2.3 from 307 pounds to 418 pounds on that site. And they rate the turbo at 450 pounds. There has to be someone out there who would has actually weighed one. Perhaps a 2.3 guru or racer .............anyone.
