Weight of 390

Hey guys i'm building a new buggy and am wondering if I should put my 390 in it. I'm not sure of the weight of the engine and trans/transfercase. The only problem is the suspension difference from front to rear might not function it the front has to be much heavier than the rear. Does someone have a weight out there? Thanks.

If I remember correctly, the engine alone (with alt, wp and assorted goodies) will weigh in around 700lbs.

about 650lbs, a np205 transfer case is lighter than an np203 and better imo. Can't really say anything on the c6,fmx,np435, or borgs.
