For less weight and free up a little HP, probably. But only if you know you won't want A/C. It sucks in the summer where I'm at. Lol You'd definitely want to do a complete removal of A/C related parts to get the full benefit. That pulley replaces the compressor, so you'll want to remove the hoses, receiver/drier/accumulator, and the condenser coil. You could probably leave the evaporator since its in the dash and would not be worth the effort to get to.

You might want to checkout the How To on American Muscle. Might give you a better idea of what it takes and help you decide if it's worth it.

I did it and live in Texas ,

Of course it's going to be hot

Take off belt
Remove Compressor ( 3 bolts )
Plug hoses ( Prevent Damage to HVAC Damage )

And there you go

It comes with hardware in kit

Is it still worth it though if you don't remove the remaining engine compartment parts? That would be quite a bit of additional weight loss missed if not removed.

Well I did the delete because compressor went out and had it for a while ( no money ) and then
Did my whole HVAC system .. Everything
And that was a pain, and honestly accumulator , hoses don't weigh very much.. All the weight is the compressor. But you can still take off lines and stuff.. Makes engine bay look cleaner
