removing the a/c does not give added power....:gaah: why do people always think this....anyway, its just frees up the load on the crankshaft. the revolutions will be a little bit faster cause it doesnt have to carry the extra weight. now, as far as the belt, all the accessories have their own separate belt. (ps, a/c, fan, etc.)

The load is minimal. The Pulley is free spinning when the A/C is off. There's little to absolutely no load.

It's probably an OBX or some variant of it, nothing special unless he's got a race header with a 3" outlet then I'd request some pics.

Ceramic Coating or Header Wrap is the only way to contain heat in the Header.
e-Fans you'll notice a diff in response. Power, not so much. Mostly response.
