    bypass ac?

    My ac doesn't work, the compressor has a bad leak. Question is since it isnt working and I cant afford to get it fixed, can I just bypass the ac and gain a few hp? If so how much gain? Is there a separate belt to take off or is it a continuous serpentine to all accessories? thanks fellas

    Umm you can remove the belt but i wouldnt waste my time. you wont see or feel any gains. Its the smaller belt that sits behind your main Serp belt...

    I'm in the same boat as you. All I did is remove the belt and also unplug the compressor. Can't say that it gained me anything, but at least I can run the defrost with out the compressor trying to run.
