I don't think I saw this in your list but there are two pretty damn heavy 1/4" steel tow brackets underneath the front of the car bolted to the edges of the unibody frame (or whatever you want to call it). I would say they weigh at least a pound or two a peice and are easy to remove. fing02.gif

^^^ Cool, cool.

Umm, I weighed the stock spare tire, jack, lug wrench, and jack handle along with the securing screw.

Total weight for those peices (easily removable in under 1 minute) : 30.5lbs!!

I also weighed the a/c condenser fan and the exhaust heat sheild : 8.5 lbs. combined.

BTW: I have removed the a/c cooling fan on the back of the radiator (the one that comes on when you turn on the a/c, nearest to the exhaust manifold) and have had no overheating problems, and it weighs at least 3 lbs. So I suppose you could add that to the list.

I am considering removing the engine cooling fan (the one with the larger fins and motor), and replacing it with the a/c fan because the a/c fan isn't as big or as heavy, and it is slimmer so it would clean up the engine bay. It would require splicing of wires though since the connectors are different sizes.

Also, I am slightly worried about the fan overheating or being overworked, in addition to the engine possibly overheating due to less air being pulled through the radiator.

Ive done the fan removal on two turbo tibs, using the A/C fans in the place of the stock cooling fan with no problem. I put FAL fans on the other side of the radiator because i had them and they weighed like .5 lbs, so i figured it would help, i did notice when the fans kick on now they dont have to stay on for too long because they cool so damn well haha.

Oh i weighed the power steering system and it weighed 9.6 lbs without the fluid! So i dont have at least 10lbs because i removed it and i dont have the power loss due to the power steering system! It's win win!

Oh just for kicks a T3/T4 turbocharger weighs 16 lbs

My P/P intake manifold weighs 9.2 lbs, i believe the Airram weighs about the same.

Im getting pretty into weight removal.

So far i have removed the spare tire, jack, tire iron (saved 30lbs), the power steering system (saved 10lbs), lightweight flywheel(saved about 5 lbs), lightweight crank pulley (saved 3lbs), Carbon fiber hood (saved 20 lbs)

so thats almost 70lbs! If you count that i am always at 1/4 tank thats about 75 more lbs. More than offset my turbo system for sure. I plan on doing the firewall, the glove box weighted piece, new seats, fuel cell, odyssey battery, eventually some lexan, etc, hope to eventually get down to 2300lbs or so...

OH and i added this to the listing, and i also added certain weights that i know

Can someone weigh their Solite battery?

I saved 27lbs going from the Optima Red top to the Odyssey 680.
