Just bought a trw ps pump on eBay so it looks like the frunk mounted ps is going to happen. Had been trying to buy a few on eBay but no one wants to post to Northern Ireland due to extra cost. One has gotten back to me so I’ll need to sort out the pipes of anyone can help.

On the seats, I’m unsure. My contact got back to me with all the details of his but they were weighing in at 11.5kg so not worth the bother.
I might leave the seats and concentrate on the rest of the refresh and sorting the suspension, then paint etc. I’d like to actually get using the car at some stage

Pics of pump? Where will you mount it?

Perhaps it was the reduced drag rather than the weight reduction?!?!?

Sim996 I haven’t got the pump yet so can’t help on that one. I’ll mount it in the frunk but I’m not sure yet on position as I need to sort out the pipes first

GMG, I tried to give context in terms of my skill set/experience and that others weren't likely to notice the difference but you're still falling into the trap of judging others by your own capabilities rather than theirs. You're also taking the rather unedifying step of quoting someone and then adding words that I didn't write. I stated I could notice a difference, not that there was any perceptible difference in performance.

...if you believe that you noticed a difference of 2 kg then you must have magical powers, which of course you don't and neither could you or anyone notice such a trace change on a car weighing close to 1400kg with driver and fuel...

Or at least we didn't have, until the 2000 MY cars were introduced.
My C4, registered Jun 2001 certainly has one.

Now now boys. I’m only looking for a little info on weather or not to bother with the diet, it a slagging match.

As I said, I’ve a pump bought on eBay but not here yet. I can’t get out to the garage atm anyway so I’m only really doing my homework. I’ve been concentrating on another part of the car to be renewed and improved.

There’s always something Very Happy

Sorry Ned, it just grips my ***** when people who think they know better try to make their point with rofl smilies rather than reasoned arguments.

CMG, it's not magical powers, simply obsessive attention to detail, several decades of driving, racing, developing race cars and road cars and test driving them on road and track, as well as doing the wiper before/after test drives about 45 minutes apart, meaning my baseline was very recent. Had it been a gap of a day or two then I probably wouldn't have noticed anything. If this is too far fetched a notion for you to grapple with then I suggest you just try to move on.

Just had a quick google and my current battery is HEAVY Surprised
It’s a Yuasa 3017 which weighs in at 21.2kg so a decent saving to be had there.

Also my power steering pump has landed so I’m very keen to hear advice from those who have fitted them. I could definitely do with some pointers to get it right first time
