I went to a public scale to get the weight of my 91 xr7.

without anyone in the car, no spare tire, empty trunk, and 1/3 of the tank full, my car weighs 3820 lbs!!! I can imagine if I had a full tank and the spare tire in the trunk

that's the downside to having a 91. 91s are the heaviest since they have an all cast iron block, heads and the bigger gas tank (19 gallons, 18 gallons 92-up) and not to mention that the xr7s weight more than the LS's because of other options...:(

Gas is only 6.7 lbs a gallon...
let's do sum math:
6.7 x 19= 127.3

spare tire about ~12-15 ibls

yeah, it makes a difference

total weight without me = ~3960 lbs
with me (i'm 177lbs) = 4137

that weight loss tech article is a good article but I wouldn't do everything it says like the getting rid of that sound proofing gunk because you'll get a lot of rattle and A LOT heat will get in, in the summer same thing for winter
the tubualr engine cradle is nice but expensive
most of the other suggestions are ok for a drag racer, not a daily driver
