    How about being young again in the late 60's or 70's. Now that I would go for

    It's this day and age that scares me now more than anything.

    Yea me too, knowing my luck i'd be drafted though.

    Wasn't a such thing as aids back then. No worries

    It's not so much not having the condoms that is the problem,,,,it's the reason for needing it nowadays that worries me.

    Boy I sure do. Times were so much simpler back then. None of this bullcrap that's going on now.

    How did they have cold beer in the 1860s? And it probably was shitty too, no IPAs around then I bet, unless you were actually in India.

    Unless you never use the A/C (or if the compressor is bad and something is dragging), I wouldn't waste my time removing that belt. So long as the A/C is turned off, you are essentially turning an idler pulley, which takes so little HP that it would be unmeasurable. Of course, if you have no use for the A/C, I'd take off the entire system. That would save some weight off the nose, which is always good.

    As for the P/S....there are HP gains to be had there. I used to do this with my 88 5.0. Track testing showed a gain of ~a tenth and 1 mph. It is likely that it takes 5-10 HP to turn the P/S pump. I absolutely do NOT see gaining 2-3 tenths. That would equate to a roughly 20-30 HP gain - not buying that one.

    Good luck.

    They cut up the ice in the lakes and rivers. Put it on saw dust and straw and the ice would last all summer. It was a community sort of thing and everyone would participate and contribute to the icing effort.....times have changed.

    BTW they drank mostly liquor then I think. No one cared about ice, u just drink lol.
