Take out the sound deadening material from the floorpan using dry ice and a chisel/hammer. Remember that if you feel like doing auto-x someday, you'll be put in a class with fully prepped race cars because of the weight reduction, meaning you won't be competitive for sh*t:)

There's also this big chunk of metal under the steering column... It weighs a couple pounds I would guess and I can't see a real purpose of it being there other than to keep your knee from hitting something or keeping the plastic there from bending.

Or you could lose weight! (I've never seen you so I'm not suggesting you're fat...)

haha james uh..ud be correct in that i could lose a few pounds lol! i saw that metal thing and thought it was holding up my steering column. i'll check it out. i didnt see it until these little electrical boxes slid out and fell down over my gas pedal. that ever happened to anyone on here? i've put them back in their slots a few times but they just fall back out. its annoying! not hurting anything, i just dont want them dangling.

that SCC b15, kick ass, but looks like one, anyway, didn't SCC also do a weight reduction thing on a nice blue Civic Si, i just can't remember on what issue........because they did loose a hefty amount and still made it look way better than that b15........

yeah, kinda, but think of it this way:: scc covers lots of nissans, so, if they get lotsa letters compliang they cover one make over another, then what better way to keep the readers of the less covered happy by becoming temporarily iconoclastic? they did that with the si as was mentioned.
