will removing the ac belt allow more power/ faster rev. i know it would reduce parastatic drag but im not sure if its worth the time and effort, i tried google and no direct answers. i know removing the whole system will reduce weight. but im just wondering about just taking the belt off. i dont use the ac anyhow. as a side note i know there is a clutch system to disengage the pully but still...



b.t.w inform me of any interesting threads i missed out on, i havent had my laptop for a week or so.

I wouldnt bother unless you plan on removing the whole system, its only 5-10hp, depending on condition of motor. Silly man, its an SUV, keep its luxury indoor winter :lol

the really retarded thing about people who disable perfectly fine ac systems is that it only eats hp when the ac is on, so instead of removing the belt, all you have to do is not use it

to me not turning a knob or not pressing a button is 20 times easier than removing a belt

if you think removing the ac belt is going to save you hp, then you better remove any tensioner and or idler pulleys because thats all an ac pump is when the ac is off
