LS2 engine weight

I did some searching and couldn't find the actual weight of the engine. Does anybody have a weight for the LS2 engine? I realize it will vary with what accessories are included in the weight but would appreciate a weight to give me a general idea of what it weighs.

I am thinking about slapping an LS2 into my Mercedes E320 coupe but want to know the engine weights before I really think about it.
Thanks,
Brian

yeah, there's more room under the hood of the Benz than the GTO.
Now of course I will have to redo the engine mount locations, trans cross member and worry about where the shift arm comes up into the car. But I wanted to know if the weight was OK before I even think about starting on those initial fitment issues.
Then comes all of the actual getting it to run issues!!

That would be pretty awesome.

Personally I'd love to see an LS1 in one of the late 80's/early 90's V12 Jags (XJS?)

You might have to change the springs in the front to compensate or you might end up diving a highboy! LOL
