Weight of manual transmission?

Anyone have an idea how much a manual transmission on a 2006 325i weighs? Saw an e90 video of it being lifted out by two guys and it didn't look that heavy and those guys weren't really that big. And I think that was a 335i, so probably a heavier transmission.

Going to be changing out my flywheel/clutch and wondering if maybe I can just gorilla the transmission out. Have access to a lift and can get the car high enough to make me lifting the transmission easier. If it weighs 150lbs, should be no problem. If it weighs 200lbs, maybe a problem. If it weighs more than 200lbs, I won't consider trying.

heh, the 335i and 325i have the nearly the same ZF transmission - aside from the torque converter. weights are similar.

typically, two people can lift a RWD transmission pretty easily. A spec sheet I found on the ZF 6HP transmission says they weigh about 165 lbs with fluids.

Nope, I just walk on the treadmill and stare at all the women.

Thanks! Might be really late at night when I start putting everything back together, so not really wanting to count on having help. Will probably use a strap and some safety wire to help take some of the weight off while I am taking the last fasteners off.
