its good if you don't care about A/C. Do that and sway bar delete and battery relocation and thats a good 100 plus lbs off the front

I love My AC too much to delete lol If its below 80 i'll ride with the windows down but during the summers in NC its usually above 80 and humid... To me theres not much benefit to deleting it other than saving weight and youre better off losing weight in other areas first imo.

I've been thinking about doing this too. I just want to get some weight off the front of the car for when I'm at the track. If it's 40 lbs then that's equivalent to picking up 3 rwhp for me.

My next mod is going to be to relocate the battery to the trunk. That will probably make more of a difference in my 60 foot times than the A/C delete, since it will put more weight on the drive wheels.

Damn that! I live in Atlanta and spend a lot of time in Tampa and Naples. It gets too hot sometimes for the top to even be down, and I hate having the top up.

There is a thread on here somewhere that you can delete the whole ac path. I did it (took more work since i have blower). Looks much cleaner, takes out a few idler pulleys.

A/c is nice, but i had to take it out since the radiator wouldnt fit with the ac lines

You know, when i was re-installing my motor i was lookin at it thinkin about doing that. But i wasnt sure what belt to use, and if it was safe to do that (because wouldnt that make the entire system spin faster, beings there will be less revolutions?)

it will spin the same # of rev's so your good there. I think (don't quote me though) it takes a 71" belt, but it's easy enough to figure out, just hold the tensioner in the middle of it's range & put a string around every thing in the propper routing, & measure the string ,thats the length of belt you need. you'll also need a ribbed tensioner pulley (just get a pulley from the same year v-6 as your GT & you'll be all set) to swap over.

I would only do it if this is going to be a full blown race car...it will kill the resale value. I done mine about 3 weeks ago and pulled the entire A/C Heat system...I mean everything, but mine is an all out drag car.
