Yeah, if/when the five speed breaks I'll a six speed + brembos probably. I'm sure I can find 100 pounds to remove out of this car still.

If you do an aluminum hood, and jdm rear beam its a good 60+ lbs less than the stock stuff. I thought about the aerosim roof but its not worth the weight vs cost, might look into a lighter trunk at some point.

I already have the JDM front beam. Before I replace exterior parts I'd rather find more in the engine bay or in front of the drivers seat first to try and get the balance better

You change the battery? And you don't have ABS right? The ABS system weighed a ton
