    rpm drops when a/c is on....

    when i rev my car 2000 rpm and above, and when i turn on the a/c, the rpm drops a couple of hundreds. plus, there's a relatively loud clicking sound i hear from the engine bay. does ne1 know what the problem could be???

    BTW my mods consist of HKS BOV, Intake, and exhaust (+ turbo timer) if that would help

    The AC consumes more power... so... ahhh.... I'm not quite sure why this would be a problem.

    Clicking noise? Like the compressor engaging?

    i guess... it's like when u click this kind of switch:





    but when the hood is open, u can here it above everything else (exhuast, etc) so its pretty loud
