And dont forget all the hicas hydrolics in the engine bay under the plenum on the chassis rail and the line that goes from front to rear for the hicas, it all adds up!

dont most people use the hicas line as a fuel line due to the larger diameter?

This should be interesting Adam. I'm currently preparing mine for next year with minimum weight a real priority. It won't get any lighter than it is at the moment


I'm going for a custom loom, stack dash and custom surround, may go for poly windows from Ron once I've had a look at them, GRP doors, holes everywhere if Bladey oulls his finger out of his generously proportioned butt and dumping as much toot out of the engine bay as possible.

Sorely tempted to go for the RB25 gearbox and rear wheel drive......the weight would plummet! I'm aiming for 1250kgs with a cage if it stays four wheel drive. I'll keep you posted.

yup, i've left mine in for future upgrades

Adam, i'll post pics of the mirrors as soon as i have them (i hven't seen them on yet myself)
the oe weight was a guess, but they have electric motors in, don't they?
the craft square (stoopid bloody name) ones are manual adjust, so a bit lighter

agree with will about the oe steering wheel, i couldn't believe how heavy it is

If you guys are wanting fibreglass doors then try Andy at Immortal Performance near Wetherby, North Yorkshire. I dropped off my R32 GTR doors last year for him to make the moulds. You can have standard type ones which will take windows or race type ones that have the lip to bolt the perspex windows into.

some solutions




A small heater?

Snap vents instead of slider kits?

motorbike horn?

A wee battery?

Oh no you don't. All that sh*t's all coming out Bob!

You ain't going to need bigger fuel lines unless you go for big, big power. And even then, you know you'd be fitting fully braided lines front to back

How about titanium exhaust? That will save a lot of weight also but is pretty costly

I'd prob be more interested in things than can come off the build rather be changed at this point in time.

All in all though - any known weights are good to work with

Exhaust - yup, how much lighter are they? I have considered a side exit but i'll need to keep noise levels in check for trackdays :/
