I have been waiting all summer to gather money for mods, but to no avail, school is coming close and tution is high. I have been reading through things and the Home Depot CAI looks like a cheap mode but, I ain't a mechanic and would have no clue on how to do it (even with the endless amount of posts already up). After all this I noticed many of you saying 'make the car lighter and it will go faster.' ???????? So what can I do without noticeing any appearence changes or any interior changes?? Is it possible??

go on a diet:D

ditch the spare tire and jack - thats a good 40 lbs i think. then carry a can of fix-a-flat with you instead.

seats are real heavy but you said you wanted your interior.

if you don't listen to your stereo you can ditch it and all your speakers - that should be a good 10 lbs. if you have an amp or subs get rid of 'em.

Remove spare tyre
Don't fill your fuel tank right up
Loose the back seats. (since you can't use them anyway)
Get lighter wheels

The fix-a-flat says not to use on "high performance or 'z'-rated tires." What is that all about?
