Have you weighed all the stuff you've pulled out?
I wouldn't mind betting you'll be surprised by just how much lard it's been carrying around.
I know mine's a different model(and therefore even heavier),but swapping the brakes for a big brake kit shaved around 15kgs off,the wheels were another 10kgs,and the rear seats when I get around to it are a whopping 50kgs.
The heated front buckets are also heavyweights at around 25kgs per side.
Good luck with the build,and you've already gained yourself quite a few bhp/tonne.
I thought the seats in my evo was heavy but Dam.....S3 seats are so back breaking but I've got a sort of bucket seats to go which are so much lighter.Car does feel slightly quicker.Once it starts getting colder I will start taking the sound deadening as its so much easier when the weather is cooler and it breaks off in chunks
I'm getting on a bit now,so I want some of the comforts left in the car,but the rear seats just don't get used,so I think they're coming out soon.
I still want to get the front seats sorted and have my eyes on a set of Tillet B1 seats,but only when I've saved a bit!
The original buckets are quite sought after,so there may be some value there,but like you say,the weight is amazing.
If I can get the weight of mine down to around 1400kg or a bit less,I'd be happy enough,and looking at around 400bhp/tonne,which would be nice,without being too ****** uncomfortable.
You have a similar approach to weight as a very good mate of mine on all of his builds.
There must be quite a pile of bits now.
The Morrison bag is starting to fill up and get heavy so I will weigh it when its all out to see what sort of weight saving from just the sound deadening and I'm cutting all the bits that hold the rear seats on and I've bought a round metal hole maker to cut holes out of some panels that I can get away with So as soon as I'm back from my holiday for 3.5 weeks it will be crack on time
Weld in cage but I'm Debaiting weather too buy one or build my own one to my spec
I won't be stripping it out fully,as I've had a real hair-shirt car before,and I'm too old for that now!
Rear seats are worth around 50kgs,and the few other bits like brake calipers and wheels have shaved a bit more off the total,and I do still fancy at least one,maybe two Tillet seats which would cut another 30kgs from the car.
I thought about a half cage,but will probably settle for a Unibrace or two.
I'm still having problems trying to find the right place for all my engine parts
But I'm still unsure on what to use because I've had 3 people say 3 different things which has totally done me in
Interesting looking build, I hadn't seen this before.
Which porsche calipers are those? I think the question above was asking if they were from the front or rear or a porsche.
Good luck with it!
