There has been a lot of talk about balance/weight concerns with engine swaps on boards lately so I thought I'd post my findings.
using 1KG = 2.205lbs and kg weights found in ETK...

S14 weighs 110.0kg - 242.55lbs
M20 weighs 115.0kg - 253.58lbs
M50 weighs 132.0kg - 291.06lbs
M52 weighs 120.5kg - 265.70lbs (aluminum block)

I'm still researching to make sure this is correct. Was wondering if any of you have different figures.
