Also, how do you save 38.4 pounds on a battery?

Why not remove all 9 speakers, radio, ducting, badging, carpeting, panels, heater core and ac? etc., etc., etc.

I guess I knew this was a heavy car before I purchased it. I can see doing this to a damaged Z I got cheap...not my dd. I'll just add some power, and keep it otherwise stock. At some point it's just not road worthy to me any longer once so much is stripped.

But if the other #'s are accurate, thanks for the info. Good to know.

I'd have to think switching to manual seats and losing the seat heaters I have a set of SS seats and drvr was electric and pass was manual and I was amazed how much the difference was

I'm thinking Carbon Fiber wheels. Put them on one of my motorcycles and it made a big difference.
