The A/C compressor weighs about 15 lbs. The lines weigh about 4lbs.

The power steering pump weighs about 6 lbs and the lines weigh about 3lbs.

You might get close to 30 lbs total.

And here is a good post from Truegearhead on the subject: http://986forum.com/forums/performance-technical-chat/52442-weight-reduction-results.html
