      ok, something there has to be a mistype... otherwise it's saying that they used a 2.0 v6 probe , and i wasn't aware that such a thing existed... also, it didn't list the curb weight on the probe either...hard to compare without that...

          If your wondering what your curb weight of your car is after adding stereo and wheels, but adding a lighter cat-back, etc. Dynolabs has scales, showing corner weights as well. Out here near Rome, where people still farm, I can go out to the local grain store and weigh my car on it.

          I personally don't see how the MX6 is 300 lbs lighter than the PGT. Maybe the magazines had a mistype as well.

            Well with 17's on my car my previous Stereo system in it and full interior I was weighed in at a whopping 2980 lbs down at Silverdollar. I know my new set up is likely to have hadded maybe 30 more lbs. So Iwill say I am a fat pig at a whopping 3000 lbs.

              I thought the weight for the PGT was right, just that the 26XX was a mistake, typo, on the magazines part.
