From The Chevrolet Power Catalog, 6th Edition, 1988:
A typical 1987 production 2.8 liter engine with aluminum cylinder heads weighs just 340 pounds (374 pounds with manual transmission flywheel), complete and ready to run.
I would guess-timate the cast iron heads would weigh in about 50 pounds (for the pair) more than the aluminum heads.
