Lots of messages here about HP and how to get more. Has anyone out there thought to go the other route to making their Z faster by lightening it? With the early GTI and Scirocco, losing about 7lbs is akin to gainig 1hp. How light can you make a street 280Z?

As I strip my Z, I'm thinking lots of the stuff I'm taking off will not be re installed. Bumpers, various trim pieces, straps, the sh*t on the floors that looks like tar in pre-cut pieces, speakers, power antenna, stereo and amp. And the nuts and bolt and washers etc.

That should maybe take 150lbs off the car, what else should I be looking at? The spare drivers door that I have is %[email protected][email protected] heavy! Is the door off a 240Z any lighter? Hood? Hatch?

If someone has gone this route before, I'd be interested to hear how much weight you've lost off your Z. Thanks!
