You can go with 5" inter-coolers to keep weight to a minimum
Well, it's not really that simple. Of course when it comes to acceleration an upgrading FMIC is going to provide big benefits even if it adds a little weight, but when it comes to feel and balance while cornering, the FMIC isn't helping at all. I would love more power, but I want to keep the determent to cornering and feel to a minimum.

Good advice about a 5 inch, but do you have any idea what the weight on a good 5 inch compared to stock is?
