AC removal instructions
 
Greetings all, I'd like to pose a question with my first post. Have any of you seen detailed instructions for removing all things air conditioner related from an SVT focus? I'm having no luck with google, but I think my google-fu is failing me. I can't even find a link to a shop manual, so take that for what it is worth. Thanks in advance.

I think you can find out from a ford dealership or a professional mechanic around ur area. im sure they should be able to help you out .

shadyninja - is that wet nitrous kit in ur mods? and if yes how is ur car running so far and how often have u used it?

Actually an average AC unis can steal 20-30hp when on and as much as 10-15 when off. Also they usually weigh around 100lbs including the compresser, pulley and belt so there is a substantial savings there.

I pulled the AC in my Gen II MR2 and got 28 more hp and it weighed around 80Lbs with all the crap. And that 28 hp was off! I'm supprised I have never seen anything about pulling AC here before. It's a classic low cost mod to get more hp for almost no money.

However make sure to go to an AC service shop so they can capture your freon otherwise you can be fined by the EPA for polution and I think it is upwards of $5,000 if you get caught.
