    Mine is 3630 with me in it (180). I need to reduce weight cuz it's gonna be a drag-race car once I drop in the 427W I'm finishing up. Does anybody know the weight of the power leather/suede seats in the 20th Anny? I know I could barely lift one out of the car.

    Was that with a TKO? Our cars are equipped pretty much the same from the factory and mine is 3710 with me (160lbs). So subtract 180 for you and your 20th is 3450lbs, my LX is 3550. maybe the AOD adds 100lbs?

    aod weighs about 160lbs dry and a t5 weighs 72lbs dry add about 24lb of fluid for the aod and about 6lbs of fluid for a t5

    I know the AOD is heavy, but not 100lb more than TKO500. I have eliminated all AC components, not much else though.

    TKO500 weighs 105lbs dry and with fluid 112lbs. The AOD with fluid probably weighs about 75lbs more.

    Well AOD + A/C might explain the 100lb difference.
