"Project Perverse"

Rate this Entry
Well, figured I would post up on here my plans for the stealth...Project Perverse.

This is what I have removed so far to shave weight:

Steering wheel w/ airbag ~ 9 pounds
Diver Seat ~ 57 pounds
Passenger Seat ~ 44 pounds
Rear seat with both back rests ~ 26 pounds
Complete AC system ~ 29 pounds
Rear wiper assem. and washer fluid reservoir(full) ~ 9 pounds
Complete Audio (double DIN head unit, speakers, power antenna) ~ 18 pounds
Complete interior minus the dash (headliner, all molding, door cards) ~ 38 pounds
Sound deadening material ~ 15 pounds (removed from bottom of trunk, directly under front seats and rear seats, rear wheel wells)
Empty Fuel Tank ~ 33 pounds

Some of these items will be replaced with lightweight parts. I will also be getting a FG hood and FG hatch and doing lexan all the way around.....eventually.

    Well, honestly there are not that many pics of it yet. Mostly just pics from taking it all apart. Still waiting on my rods to arrive from the machinist. Can't really start until I get those. Once I start putting her all back together I will be posting tons of pics.

    ditch the entire exhaust after the downpipe or cat. that sucker is heavier than anything you've taken off already

    Since this is obviously a drag car, you should ditch the AWS. If you dont plan on driving in the street I have more than a few ideas for weight removal.

    Ideas: Banana Wing, Pop up headlights, Airbag computer under console, rear seat belts, Active exhaust motor, ECS struts, Bumper reinforcements, hood and trunk lift supports, Rocker panels and door moldings. It depends how serious you are about the weight program of course but I bet thats an easy 200 lbs.

    Yeah, I am going downpipe only. The AWS is maybe 60 pounds, so not gonna hassel with the removal just yet. Already removed the COMPLETE interior and gonna have one Corbeau Forza seat in there. (about 20 pounds w/ bracket) I'm not gonna start taking out any control boxes until I get her up and running. Easier to diagnose any codes that way.

    You should have kept it beige wheat!

    Cool project you have here. I see you say you are expecting 800 AWHP, thats a bit much for 16gs.

    You think the 16Gs will be a limiting factor?

    I may be a little optomistic, but as far as I know, nobody has pushed the 16gs to their limits. I will be running E85 on a maxed out tune. (with no concern of reliability) Plus I will have all the supporting mods. (heads, cams, AEM EMS, fuel, no intakes, not exhaust, etc). I am not saying I will for sure get close to 800, but I think it is possible, even on the 3.0.

    Chris from 3sx ran his 16g's pretty much balls out and only got 702 AWHP, and he was running E100.
