When you get use to swapping the belts out it takes less than a minute (belt tension tool helps). I short belt at the track myself.
    Well yes but the short belt is another discussion actually. Personally I never noticed a difference from just removing the AC belt. Prolly gives like 2 hp.

    I like power but not at the cost of my AC. I shut it off when i race but use it 90% of the time I'm in the car so even for a few hp gain I still rather have the ac. I know in my 5.0 I deleted the smoke pump for weight reductin and extra power but always kept the a/c.

    So wat u guys think?
    I like the a/c bt I Like to feel the power better lol
    I'd say that if you aren't into serious racing, deleting the A/C pulley,etc. is a total waste of time and effort. Like others have said here, at WOT, the A/C is dis-engaged any way.

    Also, please note that the A/C not only keeps you cool in hot weather, it is also vital to the operation of the defroster. Without A/C, the defroster will be useless when it comes to quickly eliminating a fogged up windshield.

    YMMV, but I doubt it. . .
