They don't hook to the radiator, right? They have there own heat exchanger that can be removed. It's in front of the radiator. Unless its different from an 88.

if you lossen up the radiator and take the shroud off you maybe able to push the radiator dar enough to pull the condensor(?) out. then the lines wont be hanging there no more. and drop a couple pounds you dont need to. its not hard to remove. but thats what i did.

as for the ones on the firewall. if you leave them hang out about 1/2-1". you can get these rubber caps from autozone. put those on there and it will clean it up better.

that is your choice. it can be done either way. i moved the power steering up.

this pic should get you close on belt size

and your welcome

honestly you wont feel any difference. the ac is like an idler pulley when its not running. you can spin the pulley freely. it does steel a good amount of power when its running though. it does drop some unneccesary weight of thenfront end and clean up the engine bay really nice though.

good luck

Re: 92 Gt a/c delete kit

Honestly, go with the A/C delete from FMS. I tried one of those aftermarket aluminum ones for a few bucks less, big mistake. Pulleys weren't aligning right and when the belt was cold, it would jump a tooth and go back. It was aggravating to say the least.

I bought the delete kit for $55 or so. Got a 73" belt (some claim its too loose and get a 72-72.5") and routed it like the blue belt on the diagram dreamstang posted. If you route it like the purple, it will be too loose and rub on each other.

It will make things alot easier. I tried going shorter without the FMS kit and stock brackets, and the tensioner wouldn't put any pressure on the belt. it was just barely touching.

Hope my mistakes help you out. Trust me, I tried everything before spending $55 on the kit lol.
