i'm gonna say your tires must suck...i ran a 16 flat with just intake, exhaust, and some nittos on my auto. i'd look into picking up a set of stock v6 wheels for the rear and buying some street legal slicks. whats your suspension currently?

as for the muffler thing not really...you lose a bit of low end power but you make it up with increased top end

Not it shouldn't matter. Like slow said what's you're suspension? Look into lowering it and control arms, as well as maybe putting it on a diet

stock hood is made of SMS so i'd say the fiberglass isn't much lighter but every bit helps. as for your times you can probably blame the times on your tires and springs (depending on the spring rate)...not the best idea to run a spring you don't know anything about. as for stripping the trunk i leave my trunk loaded to keep weight over the back tires. some empty them personal preference...when i did my 16 flat run i had jack, spare, and a 1/4 tank of gas

thats about spot on for your car in an auto~ just work on traction (60ft time is huge, every .1 off it is .2 off the quarter mile time)

Gears will help the most for the money spent, and get a tlok so both tires spin for better traction. bolt ons really dont do anything

and you're maxed out now on those wheels...you wanted wider tires buy new wheels. and for lower then you are now you'd want to look into coil overs not just doing new springs for the best ride

when you launch you need to be able to transfer weight to the back tires...the stiffer your suspension the worse it gets...for a road coarse or auto x car stiff is great...for drag you need a softer setup so it squats when it launches for the best times.

i remember having those stockers...they are heavy big time...my first track experience was with those and swapping to lighter GT starfish wheels with better tires made a good difference.

yeah adding spacers adds rotational mass to the back too which can slow ya down too....i'd say look on CL for a set of 99-00 GT wheels...you'll enjoy them much more for both looks and weight
