Welcome to the site. Plenty of information on this web site covering every subject. This has been discussed. I recommend using the search button. In the meantime if you dump the suitcase size mufflers you can save 32 lbs. like I did when installing the overnight bags aka: MRT 2.0's

High performance battery will save some weight. Carbon fiber hood and trunk lid. Also don't eat so many cheese burgers. Lol jk

Umm I read where the CF hoods are heavier than the stock hood.

yeah the stock hood is very thin aluminum, you won't gain much if anything by putting on CF.

How crazy do you wanna get? really the possiblities are endless. Take out everything that your body doesn't touch when sitting in it or isn't needed to operate the car haha.

Like stated above, full exhaust will lighten it up. Lighter wheels and tires. This will also help with rotating mass. Put less gas in it, drive naked, keep all fluid filled compartments at bare minimum and use thinner oil, LOL j/k
