dont worry about the motor, lol. How much more does a big block weigh versus a small block?

With weld draglights with slicks in the back and skinnies in the front you can loose 60 pounds. The back seat weights about 20 pounds.

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.

Fiberglass Fenders
Fiberglass Hood
Fiberglass Hatch
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)
Aluminum Heads
Gutted Interior
Spare Tire & Jack
Take Out Rear Seats
Tubular K Member
Tubular A Arms
Tubular Control Arms (upper/lower)
Good Aftermarket Brake Setup
A/C Delete
P/S Delete
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...
