I had recently got my 2000 2.5RS auto down to 2640lbs, but since then it gained a little. My goal is to get it down to about 2500 lbs and call it quits for that. Heres a list of my weight reduction mods

Light weight bumper beams
Remove metal Knee beams in dash
Coilovers( saved about 5 lbs each corner)
Removed everthing in trunk
13.5 lb battery
removed rear spoiler
Morette headlight conversion(not much weight saved here)
Removed Tar from back of car to the back seat(got to tired to do the rest)
Removed Rear speakers
Lighter front speakers and Cd player
Removed Windshield Washer Fluid Tank(not that heavy without water in it)
Aluminum 4POT Subaru Calipers(just found out last night they where aluminum)

Things to come:

Carbon Fiber hood(geting in a week)
Aluminum or Carbon Fiber Trunk
Sparco EVO 2 Seats
Carbon Fiber door Panels
Carbon Fiber Dash(custom done)
Removing Sunroof
Replacing the Rear windows with the lightweight stuff
