I am on a car lightening quest. After this weekend it will be minus 130 pounds. Soon to go is my air conditioning system. I only use it about 5 times per year so I can live without. My question is:
When I remove the AC compressor there will be one less pulley for the serpentine belt to wrap around and therefore a shorter belt is needed. To anyone who has done this; what size belt did you use to replace the original. Length, manufacturer, part number, etc.
Not sure about the length of the belt but along with a weight reduction not having AC is gonna give you some extra power. We just removed the AC from my buddy's turbo talon and it probably added around 10 HP. Good luck
