sound deadeners on the floor, under the hood, headliner, seats, dash pad, strip it to a shell. Replace parts with fiberglass where available. Unsprung weight, wheels, tires, etc., go to aftermarket. Go to the dragraces and see what the guys with late model cars do with their cars. Are you wanting to stay street legal? Think of a shell with an engine. Windows can be replaced. And of course, don't forget the horsepower decals, takes off many seconds from your e.t..... Dan

All the seats but drivers seat, console (all you really need is a shifter stickin outta the floor ), dash (replace gauges with some Autometer ones, the only ones you need are RPM, Oil Press, Water Temp if you dont plan on staying street legal) take out the AC, all the emissions crap, replace fenders for fiberglass, 'glass hood, loose your trunklid, bumpers, switch to aluminum driveshaft and wheels.
