    Those coolant hoses are there for cold start inviroments.ie: In the winter time when temps are low it helps with cold starts. Some people disconnect these lines so the you wont have heated water warming the air going into your intake. Colder air is more dense and so you can fit more into the same sized area. Hope this helps. ALSO IMO: this is not a mod worth doing as the hp gains are minimal to none on stock set ups.

    I would say about the only thing you could do is drop any remaining AC components, though that amount of weight will be minimal.

    Just take out the back seat and strip out the trunk. Use wich ever seats you think look the best. Its not going to make that big of a diff.
