Had the car weighed and it came in at 884kg with just under a 1/2 tank of gas and in standard race trim (ie both seats/harness's, fire extingusher etc)

With a few more obvious weight reduction measures (bonnet, hatch and bumpers in frp, and a light weight exhaust system) I'm sure closer to 850 is attainable.

Upgraded the front swaybar bushes and links with nolathane parts. This involved dropping down the front sub frame far enough to be able to access the shells, not an easy job by any means. Getting the old ones off was not so bad, but putting the new ones on and then trying to getting the shell/bolt to mate up was 'difficult'.
The factory rubber bushes where all but perished (might explain the knocking sound) so I'm hoping this will make quite a noticeable difference.

Finally started fabricating the new exhaust system, didn't have much choice really since there was a hole in the muffler anyway and it wouldn't have a passed a wof.

As usual its all about removing weight. The original system weighed in at 17.5kg, the pile of replacement tube and mufflers weights in at 9kg :) . Also there will probably be another 1/2 a kg gone once I grind off all the original hanger brackets since most of these are now redundant. There was about 1/2 a kg weight difference between the new EVO3 fuel tank and the factory cyborg one. I've gone back to the Cusco 4-2-1 Headers, mostly because they fit properly. The mufflers will be mounted towards the back of the car to try and improve the weight balance a bit. I'll post some images once I finish welding in a few days time.

not too sure if i should reply to the thread but here goes.

What is the weight of the stock tank. Could there be weight savings in using a fuel cell considering
1. you have to build a metal box to fit it through the floor,
2. most clubs require hatches to build an enclosure around the fuel cell to isolate it from the cabin
3. is there much benefit to the evo 3 tank other than the 1/2 kg and being able to run the muffler straight thru the centre of the car????

The stock tank weighs 10.5kg excluding the fuel pump. I'm sure a fuel cell would be a lot lighter since they are usually made of plastic but like you say there is a lot of work involved in fitting etc, the evo tank just bolts right up. Not to mention evo tanks are easy to get and cheap.

I'll go for another dyno run when I finish the new exhaust.

So it turns out two 16" coby mufflers are 'too loud' for wof. I could have argued that because I have a Authority card, its exempt from the 95db limit if its being driven to or from an event and I'll take my chances the rest of the time. Didn't feel it was worth really arguing my case, esp since the wof guy didn't even know of this exemption.

In all honesty tho, its deafening inside the cabin (was the first time I'd driven it on the road) so I'm simply going to add a 3rd 16" or whatever 2nd they have to have at the time. Hopefully that will help. I have to say the 2 1/2 straight system 'feels' noticeably faster by the seat of my pants o'meter but its very very loud.

Also had a split steering rack boot, so its back onto the stands.

No Sorry, I don't have any drawings for it. I just made it up as I went along.

The car is still very loud with a 19" and two 16" coby/hotdog mufflers, I wouldn't recommend building a system using only straight through mufflers, at least not if you only have 2.5" pipe and no bends. They do a great job removing high frequencies, but nothing down low so there is plenty of deep bass, it sounds great, not at all like a typical jap street racer.

Those cannon mufflers come with 'silencer' pipes tho, which have about a 1.5" hole in them and that makes them fairly quiet. I made a silencer pipe too now, and it almost sounds like a standard car but it passed a wof. They are REALLY strict on noise :x

I only used coby's because the coby factory is in hamilton so can get 2nds for 1/2 price. I'll probably get sick of the noise and replace the last coby with a box muffler of some sort.
