A few hundred pounds more than the 5kCSTQ, and a little lighter than
the '92 S4.
It's probably due to 2x the valves, 2x the exhaust pipes/cats/large
mufflers, the second aux radiator, the UFOs(which are probably much
heavier than the G60's), and the LSD(or whatever it is, you all know
what I'm talking about)...it all adds up in the end.
Size has nothing to do with strength...carefully stand on top of an
empty soda can. Flimsy, yet because of its shape, it can support
what's probably over ten thousand times its own weight. Same with
