how much horsepower do you guys think the a/c unit on the 1.6 robs the engine of?
Thats pretty interesting man. I never thought it would drag that much unengaged. Anyway, If you want this thing to be cruiser keep it. If this is going to be a weekend/go fast/track car GUT IT!!!I dont know about a 1.6. I have a 1.8 .And when I had it on the dyno,we did a few base runs then we cut the a/c belt (which also went around the powersteering)and did another run we saw a 5 horsepower increase at the wheels.The powersteering had alot to do with the increase.
