Remove everything, including the hood, and your car will be super lightweight!



Really though, what do you want to do with it? Do you need to keep emissions? A/C and heat? Power steering? Feel like premixing?



Honestly the only thing I've gained (positively) by removing all that stuff is probably a lighter car, and more room to work on the remaining stuff under the hood.

I like premixing in my car. This way, there is no question about whether the seals are being oiled or not. It also got rid of a nasty oil leak in the form of the OMP.



Plus its pretty funny the looks I get at the gas station. I think I convinced some kid with a honda to start premixing cause his car was 'modded'.

I think your my hero, so is pre mixing not that bad? I dont even know what mixes it in guess i never even thought of that, so you did this was it difficult was did it require new pullies or do the stock pullies handle the job? Just need some input and info on this before i just start rippin **** off

If you're not very familiar with the various systems and what they do, I wouldn't mess with any of it. If you want to pick up some power, lose the factory airbox and run a cone filter.

I already got the K&N filtercharger it actually makes a small noticable difference.



But i def want to take stuff out for 1 easier to get around under the hood and it will free up a little power.

Removing all that stuff won't really affect your power any noticeable amount. If you haven't already, focus on a better exhaust system to get power.

Ya if i dont end up selling it then imma get a corksport full exhaust. I know it doesnt make really any ponies but it will most likely free up 10-20 i bet just in the motor using power to turn all the pullies considering theres like 8764734756497 different ones
