One more thing! I used the JDM A/C compressor when i did my swap just because I've had shit luck with several expensive branded replacement compressors in many different type vehicles over the years. But lately ive been testing the difference in acceleration with and without the A/C running. Holy shit! it accelerates much faster without the AC on. i couldnt believe the difference. But it's SOOOOOO fukin hot in Louisiana. I guess I'll just have to lose the horsepower.

For sure man! Here is the dyno plot of the A/C power drain:

it's like 10-12 ft-lbs, which can be like nearly 10% if you're stock!
