Re: A/C removal (garbage)

Garbage, I apologize if these post doesn't apply to you but:
I've noticed this trend among high school and college age kids. Removal of A/C on otherwise stock cars. That's sheer stupidity. Kiss 20% of your cars resale value goodbye, if you can even sell it after that. For what....maybe 3-4 horsepower?
I'm sure you can find a used compressor on eBay or a junkyard for a cheap price (or even a nearly new one), because of all these dumbasses removing their A/C.
On the flip side....I put together a complete A/C system for my car and only had to buy 1 piece! The rest was given to me by naive (although very kind) Civic kids that looked at their A/C system as if it were a plague.

Rice, I think in your case you don't have a choice

On the other hand, I've seen some stock Civics that have had their A/C ripped out. That's just silly.

If you're going for all-out performance, then removing the A/C might not be a bad idea. Personally, I'd make it work, but then it sometimes hits 120 here in the Summer. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

I think if resale value is not an issue and you live in a temperate climate then it's not a terrible idea. At the very least you could remove the compressor belt and take the drag off the crank pulley (or whatever it's attached to on your car). Then if you change your mind in the future, you'll still have the stuff there.

One other thing...most heater boxes coexist with the A/C system and removing a bunch of A/C parts without being clear about what they do could put your heating system in jeapordy.
