Gutting the A/C out of a bird or cat. Has any one done this???
So you've done this??? Where could i get my hands the pully adapter?yup, it's reall easy to all you need is a 79k6 belt and a grooved idler pulley to put in place of the stock that has no grooves. Romove all the hardware and then thats it.

If you are going to drive your car in the humid cool evenings and your windows fog up you are f*cked... your windows aren't going to defog because you are going to be blowing humid air onto the window. you need the DRY air to do it and thats what the A/C compressor is used for. I promise you its not worth it. You're going to save what... probably about 15 lbs from the freon and the compressor if that and save oh probably .25 horsepower from the idler pulley on the A/C compressor. Its not a smart move I promise you. You would save more HP from disconnecting all the lights on your car at night so it doesn't draw any demand from the alternator than you would from taking off teh A/C compressor. Also... think about this one. You are taking off a idler pulley to put another one on?? how does that work. but if you want go right ahead man. When you get in an accident cuz you can't see out your windshield we'll just say we told you so :/
P.S - to everyone else I can see it already. He's going to take it off go to the track run the SAME thing he did before and be dissappointed. Then he'll have to have someone run a vacuum on the system to get all hte moisture out of the system. Not to mention all the expensive freon... sometimes I wish I had my certification so I could do it myself. So much cheaper that way.
Nobody is talking out of there a**es. They were referring to drag cars losing weight on the front end, they both have old school muscle cars (73 Mustang and 70 Torino Cobra). Back in the day you get more gains when removing the A/C then today’s cars. I was looking into it, doing some research and info about it, thats it.The Great Obucina said:i think the motorhead friends are talkin out thier asses. keep dat **** in. whatever gains you will pick up in terms out weight probably wont help alot.....as you already have mad crazy JDM torque.
