Weighed my 1LE after build
 
This was on 1/3 tank of gas in full trim. I left the tire kit in the trunk, everything in the glove compartment....even my phone/chargers etc.

Below are a current list of mods I've completed on my car as it sits and what she weighed: 3820lbs

Package Options: Basically everything but the sunroof and sub options
1LE package
2SS
RS Package
7" Touch screen navigation
ZL1 dual mode exhaust
Interior pedals/cup holder illumination
Exterior Modifications
Heritage grill
Harder 315's on the rear wheels
Debadged rear
Tinted @ 20%
Blacked out all exterior lighting
Engine Bay mods
TVS2300 w/ overdrive set up
FIC 850 injectors
RotoFab intake w/ washer bottle relocation
Stainless Works L/T headers
Pfadt -1 1/4" drop springs
AI Competition Chiller
PROSPORT EVO wideband and Boost gauges
RX catch can w/ breather
Intake scoop

1/3 tank:

3820lbs (take out the few items in the car I'd say 3815 is more accurate)

Thought she'd be a bit heavier with the maxed out options and the blower on the front and all the beefed up 1LE parts.

Wow. That does seem to be quite a bit lighter than I thought it would be as well. I thought that a regular 2SS weighs in higher than that already. Then you added a blower to the front end and I figured it would take it over 3900 for sure.
I guess you did take the exhaust manifolds off and replace them with headers so I'm sure you shaved some nice weight there. Makes me curious to take mine somewhere to weigh it once I get it and it's all stock. I wonder if it would weigh in at less than 3800 then?

I thought the 1LE started out at 3875 per GM specifications even though all the mags are saying 3860. None of your mods that I can tell should have saved you weight, minus the debadging. I wonder how you pulled this one off.

RIGHT! I thought for sure over 3900. With me in the car that puts it @ about 4005lbs with 1/3 tank.

Exactly....I saw 3860-3870 everywhere.....sadly I did not weight it before the build as I took the above #'s at face value. Either way especially that I have dang near every option...was expecting 3925+ easy

Did you fill your tires with helium? :biggrin:

Hmmm. Maybe this is a way to reduce unsprung weight:biggrin::biggrin:

No...maybe next time though :D I'm glad I'm not the only one surprised with this weight.

Hopefully someone else with a 2SS/RS 1LE will post a stock weight with 1/3 tank for comparison.

SUKXOST 04-21-2013 09:04 AM

Someone mentioned on my 1LE site thread that his 1SS 1LE was 3750 with a lil more fuel than I had in my 2SS.

Very hard to believe but hey you have the paperwork. With blower this thing should weigh close to 4000lbs. I will weigh my 2012 SS as well and if possible I will also add Mr. blower under the hood. I am very thirsty for a blower. Add pedders or Pfadts featherlight coilovers and take off like another 20 lbs.

Headers actually take off weight off the front end.

I don't remember my exact b4 number I think it was 3885? I know the after number. With all my suspension work was 3878 and that was right under a 1/2 a tank. I also have a 2ss rs with every option and a sunroof in the car :(

Thought for sure I'd have added 50-75lbs with the blower and the AI chiller kit EASILY. Fully loaded blown 2SS with the chiller kit for 3815lbs...I'll take it!

Yea it's a great number ! I'm doing headers next week ill try and run it over the scales again just for kicks

strokerls1 04-21-2013 09:35 AM

3790 with less than a 1/4 tank. This was at Atlanta dragway. My brothers stripped down brembo 5.0 was 3525. Jealous

JJKJ 04-21-2013 10:43 AM

Pretty sure that GM's curb weight is with a full tank of fuel. If you're at a true 1/3 tank, then that's 6.27 gal remaining vs 19 gal full. At ~6lbs/gal that's a 76lb difference in fuel weight.

8lbs/gal

GM gets their numbers with all fluids full. So at 6.25lbs a gallon you are down around 80lbs in fuel so add that to 3820 and you get 3900 which seems about right.

Thanks. Didn't know that. Is it pretty significant? A few pounds?

Not unless you're running jet fuel or diesel. Gas is lighter and is around 6lbs. Even jet fuel we figure 7lbs/gal.

Tara Martin 04-22-2013 09:30 AM

I ran my old '79 Z28 across the scales about 25 years ago, and it was about 3500 lbs. The extra weight in the 5Gen is in the suspension and structural rigidity?:iono:

First the awesome dyno numbers 1le's have been putting down and now this. Im telling you GM did some sneaky behind the back type stuff with this to make it competitive.
