who knows how much a J weighs?

I dont think it can be too much since its aluminum, but compared to a K series or H series or B series its probably alot, right?

They did the engine weights in honda tuning mag, but they included manual tranny, axles, etc., into the weight. I will post it up today when I get a chance.

Honda Engine And Drivetrain Weights Guide - Honda Tuning Magazine

^^ Includes engine/trans/intake & exhaust manifolds/axles & major accessories.

B - Vtec = 405
K20 = 405
K24 = 413
J32 = 550

The J30a4 alone weighs 20lbs LESS than the 250lb J30a1 = 230lbs according to Wikipedia. I'm sure the J32 weighs a little more than the J30, and the 3.7 IM would help as well. Maybe 520?

actually, I scaled my engine when it was stock, this is the TL-S Engine. The J30a4 weighs more by like 25lbs (bigger sleeves, and heavier intake manifold.

J35a8 6 speed manual weighs 405lbs complete with wiring harnesss and transmission, stock clutch and flywheel.
