    Also, did you have any trouble cooling the engine? I'm thinking of removing the whole left bracket when I get rid of the A/C to de-clutter my compartment but I'm hesitant due to the lack of the tensioner and idler pulley. By any chance do you know how long the belt is?

    I have one 9'' fan as a sucker and one 14'' as a pusher and no trouble cooling at all. my fans actually cut on and off pretty fast.

    I have; deep freez additive (summit racing )
    Alum High flow pump
    4.3 rad
    and under drive pullies

    Sorry I am at work and my truck is at home or I would get the # for you off the belt. I will post it later.

    Oh yea and $2200 was the final cost for the build and install
