And in the original post, OP said nothing about WOT. He said "heavier acceleration". I notice the difference in acceleration in that circumstance too. I usually have the AC on when I've got my wife or mom or both in the car so I don't go WOT for fear of retaliation from both of them ;-)

Think of the extra drag created on the motor once it has the A/C clutch engaged. You have the addition of a whole new set of fluids being pumped around.

2 things:
1. My teacher at lincoln tech (yeah i know) informed us that you are better off driving with your ac on low than windows open at 60 mph due to drag and areodynamics. Not 100% on that.
2. Would a light weight crank pulley, not completly obv. But actually make a difference with ac "power loss"
