yes. if you dont want bad karma remove the refrigerant by approved means. itll actually free up a small amount of power. the same thing can be done to eliminate power steering, if you were so inclined. a non ps rack is adviseable but i drove a 83 gl w/o ps hooked up.

Well I was just doin it for a posible fuel economy increase, I mean any extra power with this weak motor will be nice, but I never use ac and see no reason for it to be there, I like power steering though so I think ill keep it, but thanks
