I've estimated it to be...

2580 (approx starting curb weight)

- 27 factory exhaust
- 7 rear seat cushion
- 22 back seats
- 15 panels
- 24 spare
- 5 jack
- 2 rear floormats
- 38 wheels & tires
- 6 cruise control
- 11 stock manifold
- 16 stock springs
- 20 stock struts
- 15 stock sways
- 5 stock airbox
- 6 Cargo cover

+ 35 EVO 2 exhaust
+ 5 rear strut tower bar
+ 4 front strut tower bar
+ 3 trunk bar
+ 38 GReddy supercharger and manifold
+ 24 TRD struts
+ 20 TRD springs
+ 17 TRD sways
+ 3 SRI and Heat shielding

Total weight redux = -70

New curb weight = 2510
________________________________

Me fully clothed = +150
assorted junk = + 5
= 2665
________________________________

gas: 1 gal premium = 6.35

full tank (14.5 gal) = 93 (-00)
3/4 full (10.875 gal) = 69 (-24)
1/2 full (7.25 gal) = 46 (-47)
1/4 full (3.625 gal) = 23 (-70)

++++Final Weights++++
Curb W/Me
w/ full tank = 2510 2665
w/ 3/4 tank = 2486 2641
w/ 1/2 tank = 2463 2618
w/ 1/4 tank = 2440 2595


I need to check my math, but I think that's about right...

Edit ... ugh, I really need to just do this in Excel. Now the estimates should be reasonably accurate.

Mine probably weighs 100 pounds more because of bondo/several layers of primer/bodykit/18's.

Hey man, the factory did that for the car and I weighed each piece removed or added (or borrowed from the database) so it should be pretty close. So :fawk:

Having said that, I have been meaning to go to a weigh station -- what's the typical protocol? Just show up? There's always a line of big rigs and I don't want to be an ass and hold up folks trying to do their job... also is there any charge?

I've never tried but usually you can just show up and get it weighed (friends i know of have done so but....)....only thing is sometimes you cant see the readings cause they are ment for large high trucks so the scale gauge thing might me taller than your car depending on where you go. No charge either

If you go to the drag strip or tracks, they have weighing stations there....probably better off.....

When I raced at raceway park in NJ they had a scale that you can drive on at the end of the drag strip. I'm not sure if any other drag strips have that, but it was pretty cool.

Don't go to a scale on an interstate...as previously said...they don't always give you the correct reading or one at all. Find a trucker gas station stop...they always have a scale there. It costs about $7 up here to get weighed...don't know how much in Tampa. Where exactly in Tampa are you? I'm originally from there...I might know some places according to where you are...

I don't have a celica...but mine tips the scales at 1700lbs... The way mine sits, however, I would say it weighs 1500 or so...

That's right...1500lbs...now if I could just get some power going to the motor...LOLOL!!! Lil POS 90hp car...

USF area, but I'd take a little road trip to confirm the actual weight on a full tank :)

1700-1500 lbs? Not joking? Jeez, that's light! If you can either do an engine swap or turbo that thing it will be insanely quick!
