3625 lbs with me in it (~205 lb)

93 GT, 4r70w trans, heavy motor with heavy accessories.

I've done zero weight reduction (has all of the sound deadening). Only thing missing is the a/c and hvac box (b/c I didn't want to spend the $$ on the AC to make it work properly and I don't need heat in Houston).

If I had that stuff, it'd be heavier. :-\

My 89 GT is currently at 2960 less driver, I put it at 3165 raceweight with a 1/4 tank of fuel. I have AC Delete and PS delete, but still have the HVAC box under the dash. Also removed the front metal fog light mount bar, and the rear bumper support. Everything else is as stock with full interior.

I'll be pulling the crash shocks out next, and the underdash A/C unit. I may put a k-member in it and fiberglass hood on it when I can get no more "free" weight out. I'd like it at 3000 raceweight, but not sure how hard that will be, especially if I put a 80 lb cage in it.

3000 pounds is a piece of cake. My 88 weighed 2430# with me in it. Ran 10.3 et.

I don't think I'll get mine quite that light! Was there anything big removed, or was it ounces that led to pounds? Everyone that has raced Mustangs says its easy to get weight out, but I guess I just don't see it other than the obvious.

Hmm...My 10.6 could have been a 9.9 if it weighted that little.

There were big things removed and a lot of small things. I had almost every lightweight component you can buy. The outside was stock looking except for the wheels. The inside was gutted.

My 347 engine dynoed 360hp and 530# torque behind a C4 with a PI 3200 stall. Doesn't take much hp to run good ET's if you get your car is light enough.

Ii was under a 06 GT - auto yesterday with less than 400 miles on it. It didn't have the cast iron weights on it. Wonder what the difference is?
