I think if you used lighter seats (pole positions maybe?) and got aftermarket brakes F/R to save weight (turns out aluminum is lighter than iron) you could get ~400lbs out.

This would get you down around 3100lbs. Is it worth it? Here's an answer: "It depends." What do you use it for? Are you going to care if you're 1-2 seconds faster per lap at your track day? Does maximizing every little bit of the car seem fun to you? If not, then no. It's not worth it. It's a fair amount of money for ~10% weight and you probably won't notice it much on the street. For general street driving it is much easier (and cheaper) to add power.
