ac can go without affecting heat or fan. just realise that you can delete ac or can delete ps, but if you delete both then you need to install a dummy pulley (or gut your ps pump - i have a gutted pump i can send you if you like). note that deleting ac is not just about weight; with the condensors gone you get a lot more airflow over the rads.

a lot of other places to save weight - airbags, stereo and speakers, seats, wheels, 2-piece rotors, suspension, exhaust, charcoal canister and smog pump, carpets, insulation, bumpers, spare tire, battery, roof motor, carbon hood, flywheel, skinnier gf, ... dude, i removed the struts that hold up my trunk and use a tent pole that i leave on the tarmac when i go out on the track.
Hmmm? Manual? Did you have to replace the rack? That is an intriguing idea. I could care less about power steering.

I'm not quite ready for the full gut. I need to keep a few "creature comforts" for those weekend drives. What I should do is just buy a cheapy and do a build. Years ago I tried that with a 911 SC, man that got $$$$$$ fast! Lot's of great advice guys! Thanks!
