The Steeda 2-piece front G-brace, and rear sub-frame braces, with all hardware, are (just shy of) 30 lbs.

Anyone know how much the coolant tank weighs? I see Fathouse makes one it claims is "lightweight" https://www.fathousefab.com/product/name/s550-coolant-tank
Andrew, our tank is slightly heavier than the stock plastic tank by 9.8 ounces. This wasn't listed as a weight saving option but rather more of an eye pleasing option. When the word light-weight was used in the item description it was intended to refer to the material used. "Made of high-quality light-weight aluminum" I think the only way we could make one lighter than the plastic would be out of titanium.

For reference the factory one with the cap weighs 1 lb 12 oz. Our tank with cap weighs 2 lb 5.8 oz.

We do have some other weight saving options though like our anti-gravity battery and catch can combo. We also offer bolt in seat mounts for most name brand racing seats that save a lot of weight.

Oh, and not to mention, Ford's placement of the battery makes the move less significant than in other cars since the battery is mounted near the firewall as opposed to many other cars which place it towards the very front of the nose.
You're still moving weight to the rear. That's always a win.

Yeah. And quieter than the roush. Deep bark, no rasp/drone.
I'm sorry ......^^^...... we like loud.
No drone, coyote howls, some say rasp, I say crisp.

But hey not heard a bad sounding Mustang (V 8) so far .

My friends call me a V8 snob, and I agree.

Best commercial, guy palm smacks his forehead, "Should of had a V 8"

I went the opposite way with an Antigravity Battery. ~5 lbs compared to the 25 Lb Battery.

Trying to get back to this weight.

From this(3755 lbs.). Eventually I'll probably rip out the interior, HVAC system, stereo etc.
