    No such thing as a big block Pontiac. Pontiac V8 are all the same external dimensions. A fully dressed Pontiac 455 is about 650.

    I think they are all within 100 lbs of each other at least the top three,

    All aluminum LS motors are about 400 lbs.
    The iron blocks are about 70-80 lbs more.
