Nothing yet. Waiting for someone to make a carbon fiber exhaust. Or maybe aluminum.

Is this thread dead? No one did reduce weight significantly?

Two things I recall being posted elsewhere in the forum which could go here was lightweight crank pulley and someone shed some pounds with a new set of rims.

Every pound lighter that you can make the wheels equals saving 4 lbs from the car itself. my new Enkei TD5 wheels are 5.5 lbs lighter than the OEM alloy wheels. That's like making the car itself close to 100lbs lighter! I installed a DNA exhaust that is lighter, DC Sports header, and CAI which are both lighter. A little here and a little there makes a difference. If you can also add a few HP here and there you are helping yourself on both sides.

The other option is to just turbocharge your iM like I did my 2009 Corolla S. There are iM owners that have used the same turbo kit on the iM too.

17 Corolla iM CSM 6MT/ 17 RAV4 XLE MGM
