I dont have to feel its click on, but i can feel the HP loss. when you have a L27 with 2.84 gears you feel every bit of power loss

Bandit I agree with that...

On the 92-95 GM used the H6 Compressor, on the 96-99 GM used the V5 compressor... The H6 has to cycle on and off..

The V5 is a variable compressor that does not need to cycle as its variable..

Us as humans in the car expel plenty of moisture, and a lot of that through breathing ... On a very cold day this will fog up the windows.. Not to mention if you have just gotten out of the shower in the recent few minutes .... All of these things add a lot of moisture into the cars cabin..
