it was 40 dollars shipped from Dan Newman. Frees up a LOT of room on the passenger side. And it's shiney aluminum :D I'll probably paint it so it doesnt lose it's shine.

As you can see in the alst two pics, it is ROOMY there now! My plug wires and that blue wiring harness used to lay over the AC comrpessor. Now they dangle with freedom. I need to go to the hardware store and buy short bolts, for now I have that long one stuck in there from the comrpessor.

ford p/n E7TZ: 8678-D

It wouldnt add horsepower, but free it up. Infact, nothing really adds power unless its nitrous or some form of forced induction... everything you do NA frees up potential power that was already there.

But basically, yeah, it would free up a few horses. Also saves a lil weight on the front end.

Well, the AC decreases horsepower when it's on because it takes a lot of power to turn the AC compressor, but really you can just turn it off and it won't rob any power. But all the AC stuff weighs a ton, especially the compressor. So this reduces weight from the car and evens out the weight distribution a bit, while freeing up a lot of room in the engine bay.

well, porting stock parts is something that adds power from the stock base rating. I consider that a power gain. But something gained from reduction of parasidic drag, such as an electric fan, or underdrive pullies, I consider that gaining power from whats already there, since the motor IS making that power, but is putting it into something else, like the clutch fan, or alternator, etc.

Changing internal parts is really the only thing I would discount, save for the camshaft.

I consider the weight to be negligble, 30#'s maybe. You probably wouldnt notice it missing but every little bit helps.

The AC system had not been converted to use R134, was empty, and in MN its not worth the money to change it over...no sense having it under there if its not being used......so it was pulled.

I lived one summer in Kansas City without AC.

It was hot, humid, and it sucked. Ill be converting mine over in the future, but its nice to know that there is a delete if you want one.

hey, just tell them to wear white t-shirts :D

The only downside to my a/c delete pulley so far is the sound it makes. I dont know if its the one I got and its an isolated incident or what, but it makes the sound of a bad power steering pump. I'm going to lube up the bearing and see if that wont help. Hell I might just end up putting a smaller billet pulley on it to free up even more room.
