On a SR, any idea how much weight we could shave off by removing basic things like seats, carpet, spare? Anything else pretty easy to remove?
Just wondering if it's worth the energy, or if it's only going to be 150 lbs or so.

Spare tire and jack .

everything else is waste or will throw a CEL

Other things you can remove but ....

Doors
Hood
Trunk
Rear Seats - bottom easy back total PIA
Passenger seat
Dash
Carpet
Trunk lining

should take less then 2hrs todo all that


You would be better off ditching your pigs oh wait sorry pegs and getting a lighter wheel

Re:

Just remember if you pull the passenger seat it will set an SRS code and as far as I know only the dealer or someone with VADIS or VIDA can reset those.

Other than the spare and jack its probably not worth removing much else unless you plan a dedicated stripping.

I can concur on that one. I went to a BMW AutoX that was supposed to rain according to the weatherman. So I took out the subwoofer, the rear seats and floor panels in the rear. I estimate about 250 lbs lighter (by the way I've weighed my car on scales and it was 3950 lbs before the weight removal). To remove the rear seats you have to disconnect the connector to the belt tensioners, which sets the SRS code as Oceans60R suggests. I have the IPD diagnostics but it will not clear the codes. Bummer! The race turned out to be dry and the advantage of AWD in the rain was nullified. Darn! I still beat about half the people there.

hmmm, this thread begs the question:

Has anyone swapped the R seats for some sort of racing seat? I never would, but it'd be cool to see....

The name Koropchak comes to mind...
