Has anyone even given any thought to this ... or this doesn't matter in the world of power.

May be I am wrong, the additional hardware doesn't add more weight and it has been carefully balanced.

What's the weight of this kit compared to the OEM hardware removed to install this?

While I haven't weighed the parts coming off the car just yet. I can tell you our kit weighs about 120 pounds boxed up including oil. 32 of that is from the manifold.

To be honest I would be lying if I told you I could feel the difference between an N/a and a S/c car while taking a corner.
