ended up gutting a lot of the focus today. took out all my speakers, deck, both amps, cap, subs, rear interior trim, spare tire, jack, all the shit that was floating around in there. added up quick.

subs - 50lbs
spare tire/jack/tire iron - 35lbs
toolbox - 20lbs
4 speakers - 15lbs
cap/wires - 15lbs
2 amps/deck 20 lbs
rear interior trim - 35lbs

grand total for stuff weighed - 190

I didnt weigh any of my clothes that I had back there, breaker bar, shoes, cd's, and misc shit. but I weighed the car. 2,560lbs w/a 1/2 tank of gas and 2,740 w/me in it. not too bad. I thought it'd be heavier. here are a few pics that I snapped.







2,740lbs/154hp = 17.79lbs/hp.. not terrible? lol

take some of the sound deadening out.

i have a bunch of stuff out of my car, a bit more than you but i did put the stock sub back in and left the speakers in.

all trim besides dash is out.

headliner is out too.
rear bumper beam, windshield washer bottle and lines. mud guards, rear wiper arm.
you have race seats though whih should be substantially lighter.

all i know is my car is rattle can for sure now.

The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.
