Post C2 Weight

What is the "normal" weight for a 1990 C2, for the sake of argument, the number that could be found inside the door jamb?

Hi Thom,

I'm guessing you're already calculating how fast your "lightweight" 2.7 will be with the 3.6L engine .

Looked inside the door jambs of my car, and all I found was a GVWR = 3693 lb.

Also found a GAWR = 1499 lb. /Rear = 2315 lb.

Found a capacity rating of 661 lbs. in the engine bay. 3693 - 661 = 3032 lb., which happens to be a one pound difference from the factory published curb weight of 3031 lb. for the C2. I think this weight (the curb weight) is what you were really after?

Just for completeness, the factory published curb weight for a tip. C2 is 3100 lb, a C4 is 3252 lb.

Hope this is what you wanted. And, best of luck to you on the engine installation!
