According to the specifications found on this page (don't know where they got them):
http://www.paul128.co.kr/paul/engine/hdgas-spec2.html

A 2.0L Beta engine assembly weighs 144kg (299.4lbs) dry, 150.2kg (330.4lbs) wet
1.8L dry 135.6kg (298.3lbs), wet 141.8kg (311.96 lbs)
1.6L dry 136.1kg (299.4lbs), wet 142.3kg (313.06 lbs)

That number must be with the assembled head and accessories mounted, because I was able to lift the 1.8L short block out of my parts car by myself (barely) only after I pulled off the head, accessories, and clutch.

The transmission weights:
Manual: Dry 43kg (94.6lbs), Wet 44.9kg (98.8lbs)
Automatic (on a 2.0L G4GF): Dry 75.2kg (165.44lbs), Wet 81.1kg (178.42lbs)
Automatic (on a 1.6L G4GR or 1.8L G4GM): Dry 73.1kg (160.82lbs), Wet 79kg (173.8lbs)
They list all the automatics as A4BF1 with gearing variations. The manual is listed as M5BF1.

Note: this explains why it seemed like the manual transmission I put in my car was 1/2 as heavy as the auto I took out. It also explains why the front of my car lifted a little after the conversion (requiring suspension lowering). Now I have to wonder if there are different part numbers for the front springs . . . .

If anyone has an assembled short block, or even just a bare block, that they can weigh, please post those numbers to this thread.

I weighed the 2.0 block w/ crankshaft (no rods/pistons) and oil pump only, it was around 75lbs. Give or take 5lbs, I just got on a scale while holding it.

I think those numbers are pretty close, I had to really manhandle my fully built 2.0 motor to get it on the stand when I bought it.

Just yesterday I lifted a beta 1.8l short block (wet) from the ground into the spare tire well of a 97 tib. I thought about standing on a scale with it but then I imagined what my toes would feel like after I dropped a block on them while trying to read the scale..
