I think the autos weigh around the 40kg mark.

T5 boxes by themselves weigh around the 25kg mark, but when we factor in the flywheel and clutch, it would take it up near the 40kg mark.

Very bad guess... Just remember, the last time you and I were putting one in and taking it out.. If it was 80kg, we would have been crushed. :?
