Good lord man
You got all kinds of stuff in that bay


LOL - it's an Eagle. Two vacuum cans - one for the HVAC and such, another for the Select Drive system, PDC (Power Distribution Center), PCM (hidden under right hood hinge-  - oh THAT was fun!!), coolant recovery, cruise control, headlight relays, mega-wiring for the EFI and sensors and all that stuff, foglight wiring to PDC, washer tank, air filter box, power brakes, hydraulic clutch master cylinder, front differential hangs from engine mount brackets, EFI fuel rail, all the AC stuff....... and I'm sure I'm forgetting about something. The engine bay is only a fraction the size of my Javelins and the 4.0 isn't a tiny six.

Running an AC compressor (parasitic load) to cool your air charge is not a way to make power.  It's a reasonable way to lose power, and without making the cabin comfortable.  The compressor will sap more power than the cooler charge could ever provide.
