I'd say 30-35 kg approx. I've taken the box out of a 216 gti tc 3 times. The main problem is getting the box lined up in the correct orientation when refitting. My neighbours must have learned a few swear words.
It would be much easier to fit with someone to lift it and someone else to rotate it into position. It doesn't sit on a jack very well.
The last time I hired an engine crane which helped a lot.
