You should do that removal when you install an intercooler. And before you lower the car, because all weight added and subtracted needs a re-alignment.

I kept my under the dash A/C controls and my smuggler box fan, so I still get fresh air through the A/C vent. Feels exactly the same temperature as when I had A/C...

Yeah, that is a good point. I should decide all the weight I am going to remove, then lower and align the car. In a way, I hate to remove the spare just in case of a flat, then again, I have flatbed towing.

I'd like to weigh that GHL muffer and compare to a Zork or a dual Rarly pipe. The bumpers are heavy too, but I'm not sold on replacing them with glass bumpers. The car is pretty nice and stock ... I don't want to hack it up too much.
