Ac belt removal = more power
 
For the winter I was going to take off my AC belt. Gain a little more response and some power. Would this be a good thing to do for about 3 months?

When the AC is off there is load due to the clutch

adaseb 11-19-2012 11:21 PM

I mean no load

Iggy27 11-20-2012 12:40 AM

Well I didn't know! Ha I thought it was always taking a little off just for spinning the belt.

But you would be pretty light if you did take them off. Arrow dynamic not so much.

Your car is not dynamic as an arrow anyway.

You can also ditch the spare tire, rear seat, passenger seat, all the airbags, center console, radio, HK amp, speakers, etc and gain massive increase in performance!

And the engine too! Who needs that anyways!?

Do it! Just because the defroster blows warm, DRY air at the windshield means nothing in the winter.

Remove it, it only takes 5 minutes, you won't notice a grain of performance, i didn't.

Iggy27 11-20-2012 11:48 AM

Well I know how to remove it just I didn't know If my throttle response would be faster. But they are telling me it doesn't have a load to it unless it's on

jasonbimmer 11-20-2012 12:00 PM

I wouldnt remove it.
its suggested to use the AC once every month to lubricate all the components.
