Here's how to do it....keep removing parts until the Mustang stops running. Then install the last part you removed.

Weight reduction resolved.

You gotta love the logic in this, wish I'd thought of it. Well done Bucko

Here's another weight saving tip:
Our cars don't really need the six quarts of oil that we carry in our engines. If you just use five quarts then you can save two pounds.

Why use oil at all???
Lol
Take out your coolant while you're t it, transmission fluid is also very abundant
And when the car burns down, it'll weigh less XD

Titanium

Every ounce counts.
you can also replace those heavy/dense/weak parts to strong/light/titanium parts.

hey! But try parts like a 1 price driveshaft if you haven't already, the aluminum parts are a good idea, but expensive, same goes for CF. Rear seat delete would probably shave off 40, but is usually impractical.
Weight shaving parts for a mustang are usually expensive, try aftermarket exhaust if you haven't already, makes great sound, and are usually a good amount lighter than stock.

Rear seat back and bottom is about 23 pounds. Very light, so not really worth spending the money for a rear seat delete kit, unless it's the Boss 302 kit...that's just plain gorgious! But at almost $1200.00, yikes!

Driveshaft would be a good option then,
About 20 lbs of rotational mass.
And a tubular front cradle shaves about 40
Buy it costs close to 1500

Still yikes! I'd like to install a one piece drive shaft, but the cost is just not justifying it; especially since I keep as close as possible to the posted speed limits...

The baer 6P brakes saved me over 7 pounds each wheel up front vs stock non brembo brakes. Less rotational weight

He can probably spend double on my gift

Last year he spent ZERO $$$$$ on my Christmas present so he can really afford to spend twice as much.
