xy 1.4 engine weight

Hi

 

Does anyone know the weight of the 1.4 xy engine with integrated gearbox? I changed my 1.4 xy to a tu5jp4 with be4r box and to my surprise the lack of power steering has become less of a problem. I feared I would need PS with this engine, but It's a lot better then I anticipated.  I would have though the cast iron TU5 block with lumpy 16V head and BE4r gearbox would be at least 30 kg more. 

 

Or does the now worse weight distribution (engine far more to the front) have a positive effect on the steering effort?
