Yes, did I not read in Evo that lightening a car by 1KG = 1 BHP increase. This could be nonsense though. Stripping out is always a good idea, less weight to move, less to stop and less to make go round corners.
Definitely remove everythign you dont need. I dont do it regularyl because i live with parents and they dont approve but every now and then i strip it all out. seats, spare wheel, all that crap. Theres also a weird steel block thing in the engine bay that shakes about and isnt attacehd to anythign (covers some connectors) which i ripped out. it weighs a bit i suppose...
Car sounds much better too as the exhaust noise has less material to go through to get to you

try gettin a real carbon bonnet most companies say its carbon when its actually jus wrapped in real carbon. my mate jus got one for his prelude and u can lift it wi ur little finger so them being same weight is nonesense. all u need is a seat and a steering wheel in ur car.
