I was unaware that they made pulleys for the 3.7. Can you supply a link?

I just took it for granted that they did, which is why I was asking about it on this site

Not that I'm aware of right now...and probably because it wouldn't gain that much. The power steering is electric, and the a/c is clutched anyway. I'm assuming the a/c clutch has a WOT bypass....does it? I'll have to go give it a try...

WindyMustang is correct. There is a WOT bypass. Not much to be gained.

Most if not all cars have a WOT bypass on the A/C.

An under drive pulley would help with parasitic drag from the alternator and water pump. That's about it and maybe good for 5HP if they make a pulley.

Keep in mind that the trade off could be low voltage issues and overheating. Not worth it in my book.
