    Lighter,
    cooler,
    louder,
    quicker.

    The latter mostly between 3 and 5K revs. Véry noticable.
    With the intake as free as it gets, tubular manifold and a straight through no-damper, the cat was the restriction keeping a small herd of horses reigned in.
    All relatively speaking ofcourse as it is still only faffing with an MR2 ;-)

    Made my own air filter element using TwinAir filter foam.
    It does not ´filter´ is the sense of sieving the air but using centrifugal force traps particles in a sticky coating.
    It was designed for high revving small capacity two-stroke engines with minute filter housings and currently keeps the high powered four stroke off road bikes free yet clean breathing.
    This material is very free flowing and the sticky surface will capture the particles efficiently.

    It is a bit of a faff but it works and imo the only filter material that flows ánd cleans air.

    This morning taped the mobile on the rear bumper skirt, micro down, 20 cm above the exhaust and drove around a block on the industrial estate

    Lightbulb and more, or less




    Swapping these for lightweight ones and taking the sound system/speakers out is 6,5 kilos.

    That’s a good saving and no downside

    Just ordered the set.
    Cheaper than lightweigh door cards and I will retain the arm rests/grab bars.
    I think the crome will look nicely retro.
    Oh and these tear drops are a lót better when driving with the windows down; the OEM mirrors force turbulent air in between them and the windscreen frame.

    Wanted to take the parcel shelf out. Can séé the two nuts per hinge but don´t have the sleek triple jointed fingers needed to undo them. Grrrrrr.

    Have to rethink that so diverted my attention to taking something else out: The media player/radio unit; 2.8 kg. is out. The speakers will go when I swap mirrors. No sense in taking the door cards out twice.

    Been looking at the steering wheel. There are nicer ones, a tad smaller perhaps too, but there is not much weight there. With the explosive device out it is only 1.5 kilos.

    If you really must have a rag top, at least get something worthwhile.

    Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2. Big blue shark.

    Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

    Ah carbon fibre no doubt; if only ;-)

    There are US dragster ones in aluminium (US: aluminum) that are 400.

    Affordable after market is 1 kg easy and also requires an adapter boss.
    Can´t find what the Moto-Lita ones weigh. Never a good omen.

    Lightest ´basic´OMP, flat, 330mm is 1100 gram.
    The superleggera version is 700 and 2,5 times more €.
    Carbon is 500 twice more yet....

    The Moto-Lita being alu should be light too but can NÓT find it :-( Also needs 9 to 6 hole adapter.

    Edit; seller weighed one: Leather wrapped is on par with same diameter ´basic´ Momo. The 9 to 6 hole adapter will add weight.
