Re: Aircon delete - anyone done this?
What Alfa do you have? I did read somewhere (can't remember where) about clinate control removal on a 147. Compressor/condenser/piping etc all weighed in at about 60kgs. Admittedly that was a 147 but in total that is a lot of weight! You could consider removal of just the compressor (you'd need a new pulleys/belt as this is different on the non-AC cars), and possibly the condenser (although I think you'd need to remove the radiator first). As a project to save weight it has its merits, considering the AC on the earlier cars (ie Phase 1 GTV/Spiders) was not much good anyway, and to put right will cost a small fortune.
