Lightbulb 05 RSX-S weight questions.....

I know a Stock 05-RSX-S is listed in the brochure as 2,840 lb. (What is the 3,725lb in the driver's door jam sticker? Is this with 3 averaged size people in the car?? Somebody was telling me that.. Which 1 is the correct weight for the car with nobody in it??

Anybody knows how much the stock exhaust and muffler weighs??
Stock suspension(springs+shocks)??
Stock intake??
Stock 17" wheels??
Stock hood??

I am trying to figure out how much weight was taken off when I swapped to my aftermarket stuff on my car.. Even if its a 5 pound diff. I still would like to know...

Ok, thanks, would you happen to know how much the Buddy Club N+ dampers weigh than? LOL
By the way, is that 76 lb for a corner or I am guessing all 4 sides??

None of your parts are enough to change quarter mile times, or make you faster due to weight reduction.

The weight shown in the doorjam (3,725lb) is the max weight Honda recommends the car weigh when loaded (including driver, passengers, cargo, fluids, toung weight of trailer, etc).

Truth

Gross Vehicle Weight....its really a stupid number to put there if the driver doesnt know how much the car weighs to begin with..

they should really just a put a number that says how much weight you can add on top of the car...but whatever
