See body style weight break table below for body style assigned tier. If your vehicle is not listed you must run at base + c.i. weight

 

How to figure your weight: Weight additions for the above categories are based on taking the engine cubic inch and multiply it by the indicated percentage and converting that number to pounds. IE: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro with 520 cubic inch engine with an automatic transmission (base of 3039). Utilizing category 2 heads add 15% = 78 lbs., dry sump oiling system add 5% = 26 lbs., and non-class origin tires add 15% = 78 lbs., tier 1 body style deduct 25 lbs. for a total add of 157 lbs. (78 + 26 + 78 – 25 = 157) and a total car weight of 3196
