Weight Reduction- weights of parts- ACCURATE!

Ok fellas, so I am going on the Biggest Loser diet with my QC in the search for a faster ET. I know Trainman has done this already, but mine will be a QC and will shave things a lil differently. I will also keep track of EXACT WEIGHTS so those who would like to know can use this thread. IN fact maybe it should be a sticky! Most car sites have a sticky called "weights and measurements" and it contains this info for all to find in a easy location.

Sooooo....... in the first 10 minutes of weight reduction the Venomous10 lost 137 lbs. This is accurately based off our UPS scale at work that is Certified every month and accepts 3500 lbs and weighs accurately -/+ .25lbs. Not someone's wife's bathroom scale, lol!

Again, to the haterz out there saying I'm hacking up my truck, I will be only removing BOLT ON items or easily removed weight that will be reinstalled for routine driving. (well most anyways,lol) This is simply an effort to put a QC into the 12s NA and with only catback exhuast, tune, and a K&N.

Tailgate = 55 lbs. (previously thought to be 62 lbs.)
Spare = 82 lbs. (although previously many thought 97 lbs.)
Jack and tools for jack - 9 lbs.
Subwoofer in box - 12 lbs.
Amp for sub - 3 lbs.
Rear Fold Flat Storage Setup QC only - 17 lbs.
Eagle 058 16x10 w/M&H 31x12-16 Slicks. 60 lbs.
Factory Steel Flywheel - 31 lbs
Fidanza Aluminum Flywheel - 18 lbs
Stock manifolds and four cats = 90 lbs!!! Wow!
Belanger headers are 13 lbs. each.
fast&faster likes this.

well...........................

not sure about that...i'll have to ask the higher-ups...

you can pm me any updates if you want to keep it on the same page...but people won't necessarily see a "new post" unless a new post is added to the thread...make sense? so you would have to make a post to say...go look at post #1 so it would show up as a "new post" or "active topic"...

might be easier to quote yourself and the last update or something...

i'll ask, tho...

I'll just PM them to you. I'll keep notes and send you a few items as we go. It will beneficial for years to come for those wanting to go on a diet. Or even replacing with lighter weight parts.
