Some item weights might be useless to know, interesting nevertheless. Some people might be forever bothered to insanity by not knowing the weight of a specific part, this thread should be the one to help you!

A few other threads discussing weights and weight reduction:

Please feel free to add other appropriate threads discussing weights.

Also add weights of other stock and aftermarket parts you happen to come across or even decided to weigh them yourself; things like pistons, rods, your aftermarket wheels, etc... I'm sure someone will appreciate your contribution now or later. :thumb:

I can Honestly say that I felt a difference when I took out my leather seats including my reasrs. And put in Sparco Speeds. ANd also removed all my tire crap including the jack. Plus my seat belts Was not huge, but I felt it.
