    2. What is the weight of transmission?

    3. What is the weight of total drive train?

    Hopefully someone can chime in with exact numbers...but for now:

    I’d say the head valves and cover weigh around 75-100 lbs from when I was moving it around the garage (maybe I’m just weak and it’s closer to 50).

    I tried lifting the entire engine by myself and it was too heavy, Errr I mean awkward, but two guys easily can lift it, so maybe in the 250-300 lb range.

    My come-along and garage rafters didn’t seem to mind the weight in any capacity so i highly doubt it got to the 400-500lb range.

    Gen 2 is a different engine and trans (1NZ engine and P112 trans), but I have a Gen 2 New Car Features manual right at hand, which might give you a sort of ballpark. It says the Gen 2 1NZ engine is 86.1 kg (including oil and coolant) and the P112 tranny is 107 kg (again including fluid).

    Crack open a Gen 3 New Car Features manual and you'll have the corresponding numbers for your 2ZR engine and P410 tranny, and nobody will have to guess.

    well, two google sources make me a weakling. They have a dry engine weight at 97 kg (214 lbs) for the 2zr. I'll give myself the benefit of the doubt and say there was a few extra pounds of oil still in it when I tried to lift it ;) I couldn't find the P410 figures.

    Thanks to Elektroingenieur, there's a helpful wiki page on the Toyota service information and where to find it.

    I'm curious.

    Would a Prius engine operate properly in another vehicle? It seems to be missing quite a bit of things an engine in a non-hybrid car normally has.

    Things that immediately come to mind would be starter, alternator, belts, A/C compressor if you want A/C in the car it's going into.

    The 3rd gen Prius engine is also used in the Corolla. I think there it has belts on the crankshaft pulley. Also, on the Prius application there's a blank plate where the Corolla has the starter motor.
