It is all hype and i used to be on that train as well. Once i did my first, second, third, etc. swap, i had them weighed when i did significant weight modifications and have always come back to stock weight with a 6 cylinder. If you dont want to remove the a/c, there are plently of other ways to lighten the front back up. Battery is most definitely a place of weight. So far, ive removed the p/s, a/c, 4 cyl radiator setup, fan delete+kit, 24r battery exhange (honda size) and relocated to rear and ended up MUCH less than m44 stock weight. Gained some back with the m3 brake kit, xbrace, strut bar, and wheel setup.
