@  davidkrocks : (31 January 2015 - 10:42 AM) okay, totally, I will see if my mechanic can measure it out. I figure that it will be easiest to eliminate the ac altogether than try throwing more money into a used ac compressor install
@  KennyL : (31 January 2015 - 08:28 AM) I just measured mine on the 00 2.4, and there's a belt size for it on the forums, but I don't know if anyone's ever documented the 2nd gen size. Probably best to take a string and measure, but make sure you leave enough room to both get the belt on and have some tension adjustment.
@  davidkrocks : (30 January 2015 - 02:08 PM) hey, where can I find a the ac compressor belt bypass for a 05 2.4l 4dr stratus?
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 12:03 PM) Best of all, you can do this inside of $200. Making it speed sensitive requires the building of some sort of microcontroller that interfaces with your VSS or speedometer signal and mimics what the pot is doing, but a static adjustment should do well for most people. You could even have it on an easily accessible toggle and manually trigger it or have it hooked to a gear based switch with the 5 speed. Power steer in 1 and reverse but once you get rolling it's turned off. The DIY electrical engineering possibilities to trigger it are endless.
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 11:58 AM) Guys are doing this in old Mustangs and the like, so it should make a power steer pump deleted Stratus turn like butter. Especially my superlight build, heh.
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 11:57 AM) 1: obtain power steer assist motor assembly from 02-07 Vue/05-07 Equinox/Pontiac Torrent/03-06 Ion (metal controller case only). 2: fabricate the assembly into your steering column. 3: wire up using the controller box and adjustment potentometer. 4: Set desired power steering assist or even turn off if you want.
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 11:53 AM) I found a fairly "beater status" way of deleting your power steering, but retaining power steering. DIY electronic power steer assist! http://forums.vintag...d-ever-eps.html http://www.ebay.com/...S-/171027023129
@  KennyL : (29 January 2015 - 11:36 AM) The shout was empty and the first thing I thought of was that song from the 80s, so I typed it. I apologise. :)
@  KennyL : (29 January 2015 - 04:10 AM) Heh.
@  KennyL : (29 January 2015 - 04:10 AM) I'm talking to you...come on.
@  KennyL : (29 January 2015 - 04:09 AM) Shout. Shout. Let it all out. Theeese are the things, I can do without. Come on.
