    Correct that is headers, no cats, and magnaflow. ST2 is pretty open. If my math is correct I have some room for improvement. The horsepower to weight ratio is 8.7. The way I added the adjusments it puts me over a little bit which means I can add horsepower, take off weight, or both. My plan was to go as light as I can make it and then add horsepower to get as close to 8.7 as possible. Heads and Cam are definitely in the cards and if I play it right down the road a dog ring box can make it in

    Good idea to get the weight down before you add power. Less weight will let you push harder in the corners.

    Hey Junior, have you considered a 16 volt battery?

    Out of the batteries I checked on it seemed the Braille one that I bought was lighter @ 21lbs. The only ones I found that weighed less were full blown lithium ion and the prices were a little too crazy. They weighed next to nothing tho.

    You would think adding that cage would have negated it but...The stock front seats are like 60-80lbs a piece, I got rid of that anchor of a clutch/flywheel. The TD wheels are lighter, the 2 piece rotors helped and switching to lexan helped alot. The best part is there are still some things I can do
    I'm assuming the AC compressor is gone right?

    Junior1 is swanky. He might need the AC. Since he's not quite finished, just wasn't sure he removed it yet and whether the weight was with or without it.

    UPDATE * 10/9/2012 *

    DONE

    So after 10 months and approximately 240+ man hours, the car is now done
    Aside from some fitment adjustments made today everything went smooth
    The car is now home and ready for some shakedown. There is still a few things on my list to do but I am going to see what track time I can line up in the next couple of weeks.
    The car is still loaded in the trailer and I should have some more pictures up tomorrow or the next day since its been raining.
