Well you can make your own intake from PVC tubing and get rid of that stock airbox. You can disable the boos by-pass solenoid. Put a smaller Pulley on that is pretty cheap. Buy a torque brace for wheel hop. That is also pretty cheap.

Remove the spare tire and jack. It's about 35 lbs or so. You can also cut a hole in the stock air box, and drop in a K&N for a sort of home made cold air kit.

Do a search on the boost bypass. There should be a good how to around here.

spare tire jack and the panel over the jack are 41 lbs. If you make an intake make sure it seals right if you leak air behind the maf in the system you will get a cel.

Heppy that was pretty funny! LOL!

Start by cutting off the muffler! I did and was very happy. But then again I have a base coupe. NO CELs yet.
