hey...anyone here ever remove their air compressor...or whatever its called....the belt that runs the airconditioner? do you need to get a smaller belt once it is removed? I figure I'm out of freon..might as well take the sucker off.

i may be wrong ... but i don't think you have freon... i think you have 134A... and besides, the belt from the dealer would probably cost the same as a retro-fit kit for you car... just my thoughts...

if you remove the compressor and the mount it'll lighten your engine by about 40 pounds... that will add maybe 1 or 2 HP in the long run...
