    .1 for each 100lbs is the rule of thumb.

    what are you wanting to do, go fast or see the wind blow through some girls hair in the pass. seat,

    even with t-tops you get the wind and sun plus when they are on you get a sunroof affect.

    its your call, either way isn't bad, as long as its an ls1

    just figure you will need an additional 20 hp to keep up with a t-top car and 25hp to keep up with a hardtop car
