Default Approx. Weight of '94 SL1

Just looking for some numbers on the weight of my SL1. Looking to do an EV conversion at a later date, but calculations require the weight of the car minus the messy internal combustion engine and all associated parts.

More specificly, I need:

Stock curb weight.
Dry engine block weight.
Automatic transmission weight.
Manual transmission weight (because I need some kind of drivetrain to connect to!)
Fuel system weight.
Exaust system weight.
Cooling system weight.
Anything else that was made to serve the ICE.

Or if you just happen to know how much it weighs with everything out of it, that would be good too.

Thanks in advance!

Looks like it's just over 2300 pounds. (Scroll down most of the way.)

Okay, 2300 lbs total. I've heard that the entire ICE system weighs somewhere between 400 and 800 lbs. Probably 400 for a car this size. Puts the unladen weight at roughly 1900 lbs. That sound right?

Check shipping weights for components of interest in a replacemetn parts catalog. While they may not be precise it will give you an estimate.

And don't forget the weight of fluids. 8 quarts of coolant is close to 16 pounds and so on.
