Saran Wrap! Just cover the car in it, this way you won't have horrible drag due to the lack of aerodynamics. Not to mention it will stay fresh when refridgerated .

Ditto.

If you removed body panels and doors and stuff like that, it will probably hurt you more than help due to the horrible aerodynamics. Throw a supercharger/turbocharger or nitrous on it, and go 14'* like that, thats what I would do.

save your money and get a turbo, or even nitrous if you dont care about the engine.

Yep, I was figuring 14.9'* and **MAYBE** a 14.8 if everything is good.
You'll see a L27 dip into the 14'* hopefully this year!

Yeah, but with only a CAI and an open exhaust?

I dont know if your talking about your $300 Bonne or not but I think for you to get a bonne to 2500 lbs, it is going to have to go on a big diet!

Yup, I was thinking like removing:

doors
all removeable sheet-metal/plastic fenders, interior, unnecessary electrical components, no exhaust after the DP, skinnies in the rear, 245/50/16 tires on 16x8 GP crosslaces, etc...

Sounds like alot of work for the outcome (14'*). Also there is a thing that is called aerodynamics that are going to :( at you. But good luck finding a track that is going to let you race that way + the laughs that you are going to get when you trailer in a stripped bonne that runs 14'*. Here is an idea all joking aside - You could get a fiero and already be close to that weight and be RWD.
