    The hardest part is finding a way to bypass the AC Compressor pulley. They make "dummy" pulleys that can take the place of the compressor. Or, perhaps you can buy a shorter belt to omit the AC compressor.

    Look for an A/C delete kit. We've installed several at the shops.

    Hello there is the dummy a/c pully kit but also you can re-route the serp.drive belt with a shorter belt for the same engine size without a/c system.
