Most of the factory nuts and bolts on the interior were replaced with aluminum when we did the initial setup for sq comp. back in the day (06). There were no factory installed locks or window motors when I purchased it. I added aftermarket window motors @ 1.6 lbs each including hardware. The entire factory air delivery system was removed, rear splash guards, factory foam and sound deadening materials were removed from inside and under the car. Heat shield and a majority of the heavy ass factory exhaust were removed. The only weight I added was in foaming the frame and certain body panels got one layer of Dynamat extreme. Also some suspension mods added or took away weight, ie. strut bars, factory shocks and other factory crap was removed or replaced. I am in the market for CF panels but haven't been able to find to much. I went the hard road and started fiberglassing my own. I have been making molds for the past three months or so.

Dont forget, I drive a ZX4, NOT a ZX3
Makes sense now for the extra weight. I thought you had a ZX3
