So i searched up the weights for HPN's and found the listed dry weight to be 190Kg so 195Kg for the beastie was not so bad, though I am wondering where that extra 5kg is squirreled away
perhaps its the Bosch starter motor (thats on its way out) I believe the Valeo is half the weight but not as reliable? I have a Valeo in my parts bin so I am contemplating giving it a go.
Fit a Nippondenso starter, a lot more reliable than a failure prone Valeo and lighter.
