1981 368ci - 8/6/4 Does anyone know the weight of the engine & transmission for this engine? I'm swapping it out and trying to get my suspension in order so I'm looking to see how much weight savings I can expect.
Re: 1981 368ci - 8/6/4 Weight savings??? Whats the replacement. I think you need to restate what you are doing exactly. Re: 1981 368ci - 8/6/4 Just wondering how much the engine weighs.

Re: 1981 368ci - 8/6/4 The 472 was approximately 100 pounds heavier than a 425. Cadillac engineered that much weight out of the 425. My guess would be the 368 could have been a few pounds lighter than the 425.
