Default K swap PS delete but keep AC ?

Can anybody help I have a Ek With e.g. sub frame with a manual rack and pinion. I do not want to keep power steering on my k series but I want to keep the air conditioning. I know they sell a kit that deletes both of them but I just want to delete the power steering not air-conditioning is this possible

I was in the meaning of there is an existing kit around which let you still plug the AC on while the steering pump is deleted.

Surely you should be able to use a piece of string to measure the required serpentine belt length once your PS pulley is removed and then research a similar length belt?

I come from a drifting community who often delete air conditioning, this is their method of finding the correct length belt for the purpose. Hope this helps!

If you have a k20, use an ep3 auto tensioner pulley and the factory ep3 belt should fit. I've got a k24 with EPS running a k-tuned adjustable ep3 pulley and gates 7 rib belt that works perfectly

EP3 idler, then measure with string.

I want to say its in the neighborhood of a 57. I basically sourced it from Autozone, as it was easier to return if the belt didn't fit.
