If you want to go all out and drop tons of weight here is what I would do.... depending on if its a street car or not.
Lexan Windows (for hatch & doors) (track car only)
Fiberglass Doors (track car only)
Aluminum Driveshaft (only a few lb's I believe)
Bumper Supports (track car only)
Spare Tire & Jack
Take Out Rear Seats
Tubular K Member
Tubular A Arms
Tubular Control Arms (upper/lower)
Good Aftermarket Brake Setup
Battery Relocation Kit (not really loosing weight but transferring it)
The tubular k member, a arms and front brakes can drop 140 by itsself. Add a fiberglass hood and battery relocation kit thats prob about est 200lbs off your front end. And that is something you can REALLY feel. I can feel the difference in my car with my 90lb little brother in it like its day and night...
