    Engine weight

    A lot of noise has been made recently about the new 1.6 turbo engine weighing in at *only* 131kg but I was just wondering what is the weight of say a Z20LET or Z20LEH, I just want to have some frame of reference to decide whether 131kg is really as good as they are making it out to be.

    131kg isn't perticually light! i mean the 'cough' ford 'cough' Duratec is only about 95kg and you can get them upto 2.3ltr!

    if its an iron block though that might be where the weight is. as you said though it would be nice to see how the Z20let compears.

    thanks Chris,
