Smog pump removal

Has anyone removed a smog pump and dynod the car to see what gains you get? I still have the complete kit on my car if the gains are worth it I'll remove it, along with my ac. I think I would just get a shorter belt rather than buying the deletes. Unless I'm looking at 20 or so horse I think it's a waste of time.

Thanks. It's not a show car so I guess I'll keep it.

You'll see a little bit of a gain since it's once less thing the engine has to drive. But I do not suggest getting a short belt. It puts too much tension on the alternator and can shred a belt in no time. I had a few belts let loose when I had a short belt and the belt would start disintegrating in a dust form all over the alternator. I'd highly suggest getting a billet idler pulley to replace it which basically takes no power to spin and it let's you use a stock belt again.

Gains will be 5hp or less. That being said, I do have by smog and ac deleted. +1 on the idlers. The smaller belt trick did the same thing to me.

I am going to be pulling my smog out when Put my tranny back in, not for POWER (as jeremy clarkson would say) but to make it easier to work on... clean bays aren't just for show
