    Just the block?
    Block with crank and pistons?
    All of that plus the heads and intake?
    All the covers?

    Shhh. He has gauges so he can run a 15.6, he must be special. Maybe he has one of them differential speed gauges and one of them intake tube pressure gauges. :uhh:

    This is a technical forum. Not signature criticism chat. Cut it out.

    Ford lists the dry weight on the industrial 4.2, dry, as 183 kg=403 pounds. So the 3.8 should be about the same.
