---ALL aluminum V8 weight?

Just daydreaming. I want to know the weight of an all aluminum Chevy small block vs. the complete weight of a 4.2L inline 6.

Does anyone know this? Please chime in. Thanks

LS-1 = 415 lbs
4.2 = 450 lbs (very close to that anyway)

WC,thanks for the info, although a bit of a surprise. I always knew that the 4.2 was a heavyweight, almost the same as a cast iron V-8. I guess not.

Do you happen to know the weight of a normal chevy small block assembled?

Thanks
