I will guess 4) forty.  The only difference I can think of between an R3 long block and an R4 long block is the domed pistons in the R4.  Noting that 40 is evenly divisible by 8 I figure 5 additional ounces per R4 piston (vs the R3) seems about right.


Good deduction!.. However, the difference in weight is not 40 ounces
