I'm picking up a D16B6 bottom end this weekend with my Dad and his Suburban and I don't want to look like an idiot in front of him so I've got some questions.

About how much does the bottom end of a D16 weigh?

Will it be too heavy for me and a 66 year old man to pick up and put in the back of his truck?

Would a huge tupperware container be a good transport container?

Is it ok to rest the block on it's factory aluminum oil pan or should we put it on it's side for the 1.5 hour drive home?

Thanks for helping me not look like a n00b in front of pops... He's pretty skeptical of this whole "engine building" thing so I want to look like I know what I'm doing... :hammer:

A cylinder head weighs about 20-30 lbs so take from the below information and subtract the weight of the tranny. I'd say the block weighs approx 100lbs.


88-91 CRX/Civic engine weights:

CRX HF D15B6 - 195lbs (dry)
CRX/Civic DX D15B2 - 208lbs (dry)
CRX/Civic Si D16A6 - 219lbs (dry)

JDM DOHC ZC - 232lbs (dry)

JDM B16A - 309lbs (wet)

88-91 CRX/Civic L3 D-series transmission - 63lbs

This makes sense based on the full engine weight which includes the intake manifold and throttle body I forgot to subtract.

Me and a buddy lifted a complete A6 engine with tranny attached into the back of my pickup. Then loaded up complete D15B2 and D15B7 in there on the same trip. Yeah, it took some muscle but it's doable. I unloaded the D15s myself but needed help with the complete A6/tranny... I have a blown A1 block in my garage that i'm too attached to trash so i keep moving it around the garage every once in a while. 2 people for you, no problemo...

I picked up a Z6 block and threw in some phone books in the spare tire well and that was good enough... Plus some big pocket bubble wrap to insure in wouldn't move around on me.
