Like as title, in my Gti-6 Roadster I'll go for some little tweaks, like Astra G electric power steering and I think about the A/C compressor, if there are some compressor (like the 1.4-1.6 engines) compatible but with less absorption in engine power.
Thanks for reading.

The power used will depend on how cold you want to be!

Well, in fact more time a/c on more time power absorption. I'll ask something more like a better/new type compressor with less power use at the place of my stock a/c compressor but direct fit.

The A/C clutch disengages anyway when you floor the accelerator so no power lost.

Always work with aftermarket ecu? All controlled by the bitron?
