well I've got 2 bucket seats that are almost 1/2 of what the factory front seats weigh, and basically removed everything behind the 2 front seats. I still have the headliner/carpet I could take out I guess. other than that, just the little pieces of sound deadening tar. not sure how heavy that stuff is

factor in suspension, possible tranny, engine weight differences, sunroof, extra wiring, spoiler. defrost, exhaust, cat, and you will find your extra weight (interior included), wheels.

my orp weighs about 10lbs or so, the oem cat weighes like 30lbs probably, its a heavy SOB.

i have tons of shit out of my car and need to weigh it before the pwsc goes on.

No rear bumper beam, windshield washer bottle and pump and all lines taken out., all door cards, headliner, spare tire and jack, all seatbelt and rear seats taken out, all bolts, brackets, trim. lightweight flywheel, sts (hey it weighs less than stock), the hatch trim, rear wiper motor and arm delete, all sound deadening on roof, qp's, trunk.

oh and i have plenty to go till im finished.

So pretty much you're driving a shell with a windshield...I would never in a million years take off the washer bottle and pump...have you ever driven where it gets cold and you need washer fluid to keep your windshield from freezing over?

I hope your ORP doesn't weigh 10 lbs. Feels pretty weightless to me. Stock cat may be close to 30, but I think it's less.

Hmm, guess I don't know my own strength...felt like 5 lbs to me.

I just think taking off such a simple thing as washer fluid is a bit excessive.

I agree. But in the same sense, when people remove their AC, and all interior including speakers, headliner, center console etc, some consider that excessive. To each their own I guess.
