Shelby 427 weight?
 
What is the weight for a complete aluminum Shelby 427? Thanks

Unfortunately, I don't know the weight of a fully dressed Shelby FE. So far, in the time I've been here, we haven't weighed one before it shipped.

I believe the block weighs ~125 lbs; ~130 lbs including steel main caps and fasteners.

Hope this helps,

Roughly 465-485 #s. Depending on the internals and ancillarys.

I had imagined that I would probably not be in the right place at the right time to weigh my beast all by itself when assembled, so I,ve been weighing all my components as received. It goes like this:

Shelby block with main studs, main caps, cross bolts and head studs 122#s
Scat stroker crank 57#s
Scat steel rods, JE pistons, pins,rings 12#s
bhj balancer 7#s
Mc Leod flywheel 28#s
2 KKR stage 2 heads fully assembled 53#s
2 Erson shaft mount roller rockers 12#s
Crane hyd rllr lifters ?#s (still on backorder)
Smith bros pushers 2 #s
TWM FI manifold, throttles, injectors, and linkage 39#s
Armondo pan, tray, pickup 15#s
Shelby water pump 10#s
Powermaster starter 10#s
Total so far 367#s

I don't think roller lifters and a set of fabbed alum valve covers are going to rack up the additional 100#s:rolleyes: that Maverick is calling for. I guess we'll see pretty soon.
