I didn't weigh my Forge officially (have to check on their website if they do give out an actual weight). It was heavier than stock, but IMO not by 15lbs.
At the end of the day, just about any aftermarket FMIC would add weight, but marginal, so to me the benefits outweigh the cons. It's at a fairly low point in the car, so center of gravity isn't all that impacted, ditto for the weight distribution considering this is a 35-3600+lb car (with driver) after all.
