The EJ251 engine in my 2002 Forester weighs 119 kg (262 Lbs).


I had trouble finding this info online, so I thought that I would post it here.


I had taken the engine out to replace the clutch, and before resting the engine on the floor, I weighed it on my bathroom scales. Not exactly 100% scientific, but close enough.


The weight is for a bare engine:

- No oil;

- No coolant;

- No A/C pump;

- No Alternator;

- No Power-steering pump.

But includes:

- Flywheel and clutch;

- Timing-belt, all idlers and covers;

- Main drive-pulley;

- Rocker-covers and spark-plugs in place;

- Engine-mounts attached;

- Intake & Exhaust manifolds attached.

Wow I am a beast. I can dead lift one from floor to waist level.

I'm 170lbs and have a bad back, there is no way it's that heavy.

I would venture to say that weight is correct. The manifolds/mounts/flywheel probably add a good 75lbs by themselves. A friend and I pulled my ej255 without a lift and it was every bit of 300lbs with the intake and some accessories.


This was before my back injury too, there is no way in hell I would even consider it again.
