    How much to I-6 motors weigh dressed out? I am thinking about

    Chevy 250
    Chevy 292
    Ford 300

    Anyone have any somewhat solid numbers on what one weighs? I am thinking my buggy build will use an I-6 motor and want to start looking at weight figures for it. Thanks

    I would guess that 250 to be around 480lbs or so and i would say the 292 and the ford 300 at around 525lbs.

    Most inline 6's are about as heavy as a SBC.
