i tried to do a search first but no luck. i know there was a recent thread about this but for a 16v. i just wanted to find out everything i needed to do a non-ac swap for my 8v cis-e GTi. i've heard that i needed the non AC bracket and pulley, and a non AC belt. but i've heard from some that i need a new non AC alternator and i've heard that i didn't. any info is appreciated. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: what exactly is needed to take the AC out of an 8v cis-e car? (MattTheFatCat)

there was a pretty big thread a couple days ago that had some things in it about taking the a/c out of 8v's...
if I remember right, (check the car first) you should be able to just take the compresser out, and put some washers on the alternater pulley to get it in line with the water pump and harmonic balancer... then measure the perimeter of the 3 pulleys you have left, and go to an auto parts store and find a pulley that is that length..
anyone know any reasons why this wouldnt work??

I have looked at my car before and it looked to me like I could do just that. Has anybody actually done that before? Did it work? I am interested in knowing this also.

I had a/c but no p/s, all I had to do was find a Fox with no a/c or p/s, I took the water pump pulley and crank pulley, and I don't think I would have needed to change the water pump pulley. I now have a 1 belt system and I didn't have to do anything to the alternator...
