Sinisfun posteed this January 2008, it should be very accurate as to the weights of stock pieces that can be removed from the car for weight loss at the track.
Thread this info was pulled from: Cody Dyck - 1989 Dodge Colt (4G63t)

Well here we go:

Drivers Seat (Hyundai seats): 36.6lbs
Passenger Seat (Hyundai seats): 33.6lbs
Rear seat back: 16.6lbs
Rear seat base: 9.6lbs
Rear seat interior panels & rear shoulder belts x 2: 12lbs
Rear seat belt female ends (all of em): 2lbs
Misc. interior pieces (Floor mats, etc.): 10.8lbs
Main carpet: 14lbs (I was expecting more)
Hatch carpet & spare tire cover: 9.8lbs
Rear hatch hanging cover: 5.6lbs
Spare tire, jack & tire removal tools: 35.2lbs

All for a grand total of 204.8lbs of weight reduction. New front seats have to go in, but I'll try and find some that are significantly lighter. Does anyone know how much the stock 3g Colt seats weigh? So if I put the Hyundai driver seat back in my car is now at 2321lbs.

Update: Well I took out over 20lbs of sound deadening and a couple other things, I went out with the Gtech and ran a 14.8 @ 96mph, killing my previous best from a couple days ago of 15.7 @ 8xmph. Man is it loud inside now.
