I have weighed the following OEM pieces

Lower control arms - 6 lbs each = 12 lbs
Trailing arms - 2.8 lbs each = 5.6 lbs
Toe rods - 2.0 lbs = 4 lbs

If anyone has the weights for the BMR parts please provide them. I have updated my weight reduction list.

Dropping her off on Wednesday (10/12/16) to get the FX1 Pro racing seats and the 5pt harnesses installed.

However, they will also be checking out the code that was just thrown. Coming out onto route 1 today, I spooled up the turbo's and man did she sound good.......turbos spooling and some back firing/popping until my check engine light and stability/traction control lights came one and flashed for about 8 seconds then promptly turned back off. She drove the last 6 miles smooth, idle sounded normal and about 85 minutes later she started up just fine and I drove back with no problems. Not sure what could have been thrown but will find out very soon.

Man, those are sexy in a car porn kinda way... I'm glad to hear they are comfy as well... I paid very good money for a pair of seats I used for one weekend and I gave them away... awful they were...

Yeah I love them and will never go back to stock seats. The FX1 seats wrap around me perfectly. Damn that's very unfortunate, especially to just give them away after and taking a big hit! What seats are you currently using? And what seats did you use when setting the 5th gen camaro standing mile record?
