Default What is the weight of an LS7 motor?

Any help would be appreicated. I have a complete LS7 motor to ship and I don't know the weight to get a good quote on the freight. I don't want to estimate and get it too low. Any ideas on this guys?

I can guess the weight of the crate, so just the complete motor weight.

Thanks

You're kidding, right. Original all cast iron small blocks were about 570 lbs and big blocks were pushing 700. LS-7 engines are basically in a power to weight class of their own. Imagine another 200 lbs, hanging over our cars front axle. That's rather ugly.
