Look only alt. My car lost 100lbs in just 2 days!

As many of you know i had to do a d17a2 swap. And many of you may ask... Why didnt you kswap. Trust me i wanted to but this is what happens when you havent saved enough yet. As i was putting another d17a2 back in i wanted to pull everything out of it i could. So i cut down on weight and drag Ripping out the ac and all components and also the ps and all its components. This idea came across becouse i was thinking of buying aem power pulleys. How can the alt pulley do anything when it still wraps around the ac. And then i hear some people with subs having there alt just die. Why spend money to spend more? Out they came and this is what im left with. Also have a carbon fiber hood added to further drop the weight. Trust me the piles of stuff i pulled out amount to alot of pounds. Do you like or object?

No ps does have its ups and downs. As far as that hood goes ive been searching since i baught it and i have no idea who makes it or what style it is. Cant beat it for 100 bux though.

No power steering eh? I don't know if I could handle that. As far as the alt goes, I still have the a/c and ps in my car with a huge spl system and my voltage doesn't drop below 14.1v with an HO alternator. I really really like the hood though. Have you taken anything else out?

Very nice. Just a note - after I took out the PS and ran the breather hose to the front, it rubs on everything and started to fray. I ended up bending the bracket and putting the reservoir in the same hole with the clutch fluid reservoir. It hides it better and the hose can't rub on anything. Again, nice job!

Nice... 100 lbs... but I'd shave them off myself, rather than the car... like nick95673 said.
Also, can't take the a/c here in Puerto Rico... you'd die! I love riding with the windows down, but when it rains you just NEED the a/c... and it rains a LOT!

When I did my K-swap I did not put the A/C or P/S in, and I have to say no P/S is not bad at all. In fact when moving I like not having P/S more (it is more responsive) All thou I have a EP3 ESP rack that is going in soon (when I have more free time) so I will have P/S back only without those ugly hydro losses.

All my k20 A/C stuff came in at 60+lbs alone

weight reduction is the best
