I can't locate the source at the moment, but I seem to recall a common metric being 10 lbs = 1 hp. So removiing 80lbs of stuff mathematically gives your a gross increase by about 8hp, for free. Of course, that's a lot of work and some compromise for a few of the removable items. But it depends on what you're after. 8hp could mean a few tenths in your lap times on a road course.
BTW I've recently lost 35 lbs (Bowflex ROCKS!), so I've already got 3.5 improvement for my car.

|you like your bowflex? thought about getting one.|
Springs (Stock and Eibach) : I can weigh the stocks
Headers: not taking these off, but hope someone else could chime in
Radiator: why? all of the aftermarket radiators may be lighter, but they hold extra water which will make them heavier
A-arms: The stock A-Arms are paper thin and feather light. All the aftermarket A-Arms are heavier
