Question 96-97 DOHC A/C Elimination

I'm looking to remove the A/C from my '97 Cobra... I currently have a Vortech, so I'm pretty sure there's no way to simply remove the A/C compressor (since the blower needs it there for belt wrap around the tensioner). Does anyone know if there's an A/C delete idler for the 96-97 DOHC's??? (or better yet, a way to simply get rid of the compressor and change the belt routing???). Also, any tips for removal of the A/C stuff would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
Justin

I got mine from Carolina Mustang for about $45 bucks....It comes with the bracket and pulley to eliminate the A/C, really easy to install...

What is the amount of weight saved by eliminating the A/C and related components?
