I don't think that a CF hood + trunk would shave 60 lb's. You're going to spend $1000 to shave 60 lbs? And that's $1000.00 WITHOUT the cost of painting the pieces, if you decide to do so. 60lbs off of a 3300lb car = 1.8%, which is the equivalent of adding about 1.9% of power onto the car. So - that's adding 4.94 CRANK HORSEPOWER. Which is about 4 rear wheel horsepower. The only weight reduction mod that I buy into - for daily driving purposes - is reduction of rotational masses (flywheels, underdrives, aluminum driveshafts, lightweight wheels, etc. By the way - I think the CF hoods look sick! I would love one painted yellow with the CF showing for the GT stripes. But I also want long tubes and a new factory color paint job, so CF is not even really on my list. Also - good luck with the diet! Throw in some bicycling and you'll have a serious driver weight reduction mod on your hands shortly!
