Stereo and PS can come out as well. Strip the interior as much as you can. Since the Type R already has the tar removed you won't need to worry about removing that to save more weight. I'm not sure if there's much more you can actually remove. The rest is swapping for lightweight parts like battery, hood, wheels, etc.

just curious.. why do you want to strip everything out of your type-r???? but if i were you i would take out everything in the interior that isnt essential, then i would get a carbon fiber hood, hood pins, take out the power steering, abs system, get flexaglass windows,spoon 15" racing wheels ect... theres numerous stuff you can do, Have fun

Very Easy to remove the front seat, 4 bolts, pull it out. Back seat can be tricky. First to take out the top portion, lay them down and on the sides(closest to the speaker) you will see a black plastic clip, pull that off, this will allow the seat to slide towards the side of the car and come loose, hard to explain but you'll know when you see it. The the bottom part, just undo the one bolt in the back od the seat and it will come right out. to take the pass and back seat out, 15 minutes at the most.
