Is that the weight of the superior V6 lump you are talking about? Your turbo alone weights the same than tiny 1.8t :lol: :lol:
I think you will find that the 5 pot from the RS is heavier than the V6 heavy lump.. :p

My block complete with ancillaries is lighter than the OEM block as i dont have SAI, AC, Inlet plenum, EGR and some of the wall thickness has been removed.. :p

Yeah why do you need to know we maybe able to offer more help.

You can get nearly 70kg out of engine bay just by Cliamte removal with pipes and rad, SAI etc... you dont need.

FFS Melbourne, aint they got smashed up titties in Australasia, unless you could find a container to share I would shudder to think of the shipping costs, oh well good luck with the deal, hope it pans out... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

It would be easier selling it in the UK but i've had no interest here
So based on a weight of 300kg and palletised I've been quoted £161 from my door to Melbourne port!!! AMAZING!!!!!

Pallet shipping is not that expensive. You just need to tie that engine to the pallet nice and tight, I'd build a box around it to protect from hits. If it goes by boat you need to think about corrosion as the moist sea air corrodes metal fast. Plug all holes in the engine ,can of protective sticky grease, then wrap tight in plastic and it should survive.

I used to be able to pick up a Ford 1300 engine and stagger along with it - but not as far as Australia :roll:
I used to be able to pick up an 18 year old and stagger along with that too.... :lol:
