The Definitive Weights Thread
Posted 12 December 2005 - 08:24 PM
we weighed. this information comes very useful and has multiple usage, from
weight saving reasons (polyester stuff, lightened flywheels etc) to simpy info
that comes handy when you need to send parts by post.
please only post VERIFIED weights (weighed first hand by you on relatively
precise scales) of all the parts - engine components, bodywork parts, interior
bits, brakes, wheels, tyres etc etc.
this will stop people posting "how much does xyz weight?" and i will ultimately
digest it and make a nice useful list for use on the website too.
i'll start off with some weights i've just digested:
Garrett T25 turbo - 8 kg
Pugspares exhaust manifold - 20 kg
standard GTI bonnet - ~13kg
Italian made Speedline - 8 kg
French made SMR - 9.1 kg
OZ Superleggera: 15" 4.9 kg, 17" 7.1 kg, 18" 8.3 kg
Rota Attack 6.5x15" - 5 kg
inlet manifold + jenvey throttle bodies + trumpets + packaging = ~4.5 kg
DCOEs (complete pair of carbs with trumpets) - 4.7 kg
GSXR 1000 42mm TBs (4 x bodies, with fauel rail, and bots and bobs) - 2.5 kg
XU10J4 block - 40 kg
XU9J4 with 4 liners - 21 kg
S16 engine with all parts on - 160 kg
standard radiator - 5 kg
Nissen aluminium radiator - 2.6 kg

In Honda fitment they weigh approximately 5.45kg's but in Peugeot fitment they are near 6.2kg's. This weight is what was posted by the seller
Ive just come back from seeing a mate, on the weigh I popped off at the post office - good friends with the owner, and borrowed their scales..
I took 3 wheels in, and here are the results.
Pug fitment Graphite with lip - 6.14kg
Pug fitment plain gold - 6.19kg
Honda fitment Silver with lip - 5.42kg

about 45 kg loss of weight = 10th of a second off your ET

They are 15" diameter, 6" wide and 19mm ET. Exactly the same as 1.9 alloys then.
Without tyres, or balancing weights but including the valve and a bit of dirt, they weigh 9142.6 grams each (9.1kg for the mathematically challenged). Which makes them about the same as the 1.9 SMR alloy wheels as posted above. Which is nice.
They were weighed on a set of recently calibrated laboratory scales accurate to 0.1g.

Gripper plate BE3 diff - about 4 kg's - thanks chownr.
Posted 22 February 2006 - 06:49 PM
A 1989 1.9 GTi, non-sunroof in totally standard condition to my knowledge.
Has electric windows and central locking, half leather seats, etc.
Full fuel tank, spare wheel and bracket in the boot. Front washer bottle filled, rear empty. Oil, coolant and brake fluid, topped up. The only items missing that might make a difference are the jack and wheel brace from under the bonnet.
There are no mud flaps or foot mats, the parcel shelf is missing, the rear boot panel and badges have fallen off and (along with probably any other French car of a similar age) there are a multitude of nuts and bolts missing from various places.
Total 889kg with 63% on the front.
Accurate to 0.5 kg.
Corner weights were:
Front 274.5 282.5
Rear 170 162
