    Thanks, The car is a circle track car so the a/c doesn't work anyway and another benefit is o can remove all the a/c stuff to lighten up the car

As a young man, I didn't mind cars without A/C, tho now in my late 50's, I really appreciate it.
    my cars power acts like it cuts in half when I use my AC lol

    The AC pulley will spin freely when the AC is not turned on. Most either use a non-AC belt when the AC system has been removed or to bypass it if its not working or frozen up.

    Serpentine belt

    I thought I saw on here somewhere (now I can't find it for the life of me) that you can put a non a/c serpentine belt on a car with a/c.

    Is that correct?

    And does it give you more power?
Working...
