IMO, removing all of those is a good choice for someone like NASOHC if he NEEDS 10 more hp to meet his 250whp goal. For the guy making 140whp, I say it's a waste of time except for these guys that never see temps upwards of ~80 degrees who simply have no use for it.

1. The alternator belt without AC is this one right?
part# 180370 at www.tasauto.com

2. To drain the lines, which line do I remove first??
a. line on the compressor
b. low pressure line
c. high pressure line

thanks :)

1. yea, thats the belt. the reciept youll get with it will prolly say its a belt for 94-97 accords, but its the same belt.

2. there are only two lines, haha. High pressure and Low pressure. the Low pressure its the bigger line. to drain them you can take the caps off, and remove the valve cores with a valve core remover. thats how i was going to do it, but my dad ended up having this a/c line tool to check pressures and refill them and whatever. so i used that to empty mine, but i was told by my friend, who is a honda tech, to do the valve core way and it would work fine. just dont breathe that **** in and maybe wear a glove on that hand if you want.

it takes out the core of the valve, the piece inside that presses down to let in, like, air or fluid. like, if you look into one of the valves on either of the lines, or even at one of your wheel valve stems, theres that piece that sticks up in the middle. it unscrews out, and thats what the valve core remover, removes, hahahahha.
