27lbs for a single assembled GT40X cylinder head according to the Ford Racing Parts website...add a few lbs for packaging too I suppose.

Give me a couple of days and I can get you the exact costs.Heads have to be packaged seperately for postage.

Hi Mitch.It will cost $146 US for each head and insurance for $1000 each will cost $11 for each package.Best postage option to here is usps priority mail international,7 or 8 days.Dont use UPS they're like our TNT (hopless).Hope this helps.

If you aren't in a rush (up to 3 months) check my post about using a shipping container, two heads to Australia for $100AUD.
http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopi ... highlight=

There is other options others have posted in there too.

ive read about the shipping container method.. having $1500 worth of heads in transit for 3 months worries me a bit.. paying an extra 250-300 to recieve them the next week is money well spent in my books..

however it does make the saving of buying them internationally alot smaller
