    I heard 600hp for civic si's. 850hp if you add 2 12' subs, flame stickers and annoyingly loud exhaust. All the transmissions built for is speed. Those things are quick!

    4) Strip leather rap from steering wheel, just leave the 9 and 3 positions, measure your hands so you don’t remove too much.
    5) Remove the key fob…. Open your doors the old fashioned way with the key. You do this by placing the rounded key in the receptacle located by the boor handle. By the way, there’s one on each side of the car.
    6) Remove the rear view mirror, use the mirrors on the door panels
    7) Don’t forget the obvious cigarette lighter, ash tray, ash tray lid, glove box cover (real men don’t ware gloves) cut the built in head rest off of the seats, this is real weight reduction. I recommend placing a “baby on board” sign in the rear window so people are more cautious and less likely to rear end you.

    That should be enough to work on for quite a while. I’ll continue to brain storm this weight reduction list and improve upon it. I’m 100% sure I can get your car down to 3200 lbs. who knows, we could even get down to 3100lbs. with enough thought!

    Good Luck,

    Waldo

    And death is certain to follow, but you will have a feather lite car.

    Climate knobs, dont need them when you got windows,
    coin minder in center conslole,
    McDonalds bag should be removed from back seat.
