I have noticed recently that with the HVAC off the car idles smooth(well pretty smooth) but as soon as I turn on the heat or ac it starts to lope noticeably and it pisses me off. Any ideas?

sounds as if maybe the compressor might be on its way out.

I had a truck(with a 5.0) that did that, and finally the compressor locked up on me....

....but it could be something else, just throwin out ideas.

The voltage is fine never have any charging issues, and it stays at no less then 13.5 under load(a/c, stereo...). Could this be a vacuum leak by chance? that might make it easier and cheaper to fix lol, with summer coming up I dont want to worry about the compressor.

you know you can have the compressor lubed and serviced, if thats what it is than that might help. You're suposed to have it done like every 40k but no one does it.
