Default Weight of engine/transmission?

Any idea how much a 4.6L engine with manual transmission connected might weigh? I'm deciding on whether to spring the extra money for a 2-ton hoist rather than a one ton hoist.

The SOHC engine weighs 500 lbs, the T-45 tranny 110 lbs, through in another 50 lbs for other stuff and it comes our to 670--say 750 lbs max.

So, a 1-ton hoist will do it with plenty of room to spare...

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.
