Yep, I want to get down to 2600# if possible so I am somewhat more competitive. I recognize that it will be near impossible and certainly not in a balanced way, meaning it will come off pretty fast in the back of the car but not so much in the front.

Adding insult to injury, I am over 200# myself and 6'1" tall so that will add to the issue.

Anybody know if we can use 944 Turbo manifolds? They are much lighter...

I weigh about 155, when I got the car, it was stripped, I had to add about 50 pounds, so I did it with comfort items, I insulated the fire wall, sun roof, hump in the floor where the torque tube runs, also the floors under the seats, added a full dash, race passenger seat, some carpet, door windows that are attached to straps so I can remove them easily (8 pounds each) I also have a normal street muffler when tested at a local track, was 91db. So the car is nice for driving around town or road trips, I haven't noticed a difference in lap times with the muffler, but I haven't dyno'd it yet for comparison.

When you say, you want to make weight, do you mean that you want to get down to 2600? I am sure you will be a good bit over that number with all that your leaving on the car. You know you can weigh as much as you want, just not under 2600.

So here is the WTB that you will NOT hear from a SPEC builder for a long time to come I am sure....WANTED all removed A/C hoses, drier etc... for an 86'+ car....YES I NEED A/C parts!

I have a compressor/belt/mount and all the under dash goodies but all the hoses, drier, accumulator, condenser etc.. I need.

Appropriately priced for a SPEC racer of course... I am assuming that I will be at least a second faster being cool as I race

Thanks in advance!
