You bet! It will just take a whole lot of money and time (less time the more money spent):

Wheels, body panels in CF or the like are going to be your biggest gains... followed by suspension, brake components and a drycell(race style) battery.

Get em!

carbon fiber hood, trunk, doors, fenders

pretty sure Seibon makes all that.


remove the rear seats and seat belts
get 19 or 20" lightweight 3 piece wheels; 19s would be the lightest
if you want to get extreme, just remove EVERYTHING out of the interior except the instrument panel and driver's seat.

doing all that will take at least 600-700lbs off

headers and aftermarket exhaust will shed a few lbs (around 30 I think)

Rear seats dont really weigh much and it would look hella rice unless you made it a full blown race car. Ive taken out almost 200 lbs and you cant tell where Ive removed or altered things except for the rear wheels.

OR...you could install 4.10 gears and lowering springs/sway bars....and all of a sudden the car doesn't drive like it's big and heavy anymore.:D:p

In my 92, I removed the back seats and seatbelts. The carpet covered almost everything, so it was no big deal.

I also removed all of the heat shields, jute backing in the rare of the car and did not have any accessories in the back.

It weighed 3050 at a NHRA track. Low option car.

I went [email protected] last night with the above mods. It definately needs a re-tune going from a rotofab to the New Era intake.
