Lightbulb Intercoolers - weights

I'm not a 'weigh everything' type, but was curious as to what the various ICs approximately weigh.

The BlownSix 965 style tips the scales at 28 pounds - heavier than I imagined, FWTW.

craig I will weigh mine but the reason yours is heavy then you would think is because it has cast tanks so that takes allot of material to do that

Exactly. My RUF is also cast and is quite a bit lighter (and smaller) - but I don't know the weight.
Just when I lugged it to the shop I went 'huh, this thing is weighty'

All FWIW.....

I got some pictures from Michael of one of the new ones installed in someone else's 930....I'll try to find the pictures of it and post them if I can figure out how to do that. I'll also take some pics of the new one with all of the accessories that come with it. The workmanship is stellar, at least to me it is. Michael advised that they had worked out all the issues that were present with the first iteration and that the new one will fit in without any modifications required to the vehicle itself.
