2550 with drive of doable. I was at 2460 without my fat self in my ZX. I had no bumpers, removed the sound tar, no interior except for a single sparco and no accessories (AC, PS, window squirter, cruise etc). I still had a compete dash in though and was running some 15" wheels with 205/50 tires. Weight went up when I switched to bigger wheels.

 

Also remember that the ZX gas tank holds 20 gallons of fuel. That's like 80lbs right there. So I do track days at a little under a 1/2 tank.

 

Gollum, you forgot to mention the entire exhaust system, with the cat and muffler and crap.

I wish 20 gallons of fuel weighed 80lbs.  Try more like 130 for the full 21+ gallon tank @ 6.15lbs per gallon.  The only time I have ever lost it in a zx was with almost no fuel in the tank (there were other factors, poor driving not the least of which) and I'm sure the lacking 100lbs contributed to the tail happiness.  And yes I would love for some one to weight a stock exhaust.  I'm single 3" right now, but there is a dual 3" aluminum side exit in my near future.

Ahh, so very correct. I just had my stock exhaust out recently. Amazing how heavy it all is and how it all adds up.

Don't forget that the stock tank also has NO baffling, which will cause tank slap. I've experienced tank slap several times when being a bit too aggressive with my weight transitions.

No glass, no crank arm, no interior panel, no window switch, no trim, not a single bolt left on the door, except the hinges.

 

Don't forget those are 2+2 doors which are considerably longer and heavier. But I'd guess all the guts add a solid 15-20 lbs per door.

Just bought a scale. Weighed the hood of my car, without the torsen bar and it ame out to about 44lbs. Also weighed my front tire and it was 40lbs. 

 

Tomorrow I will weight my N42 intake, turbo, turbo mani, downpipe, jpipe and ECU/harness. Does anyone know the weight of the MSA 6-2-1 headers?

No one makes a fg stock shaped hatch do they? With a fg hood and hatch you could save like 50 pounds

My friend removed 67lbs of sound deadening material from the rear of his e30. -This got me to scraping, 7lbs removed so far, that was from the shock towers.

Everyone says that sound deadening make up a lot of weight I I remember only getting out like 13-17 lbs. That was from everything except the firewall. Weighed it with a scale first with me and the sound deadening, then just me and subtracting the difference. I do remember the ac stuff adding up to much more.

17lbs is better than nothing, I guess I am shocked at how much he's getting out of that bimmer. It should be over 100lbs by the time he's finished.

Well for comparison my friends 240sx s13 model had like 30lbs or so with just the trunk and rear seat/wheel arch area. I don't think they laid it on thick for s130's

Bimmers are also whisper quiet going down the road compared to other vehicles from the same year/era. So it makes sense they have a lot of sound deadening.

I spent 16 hours with a can of wd40, a hole saw, and a grinder on my dash frame.  I was rewarded with a little more than an ounce per hour... I've never worked so cheap.
