AC Power Loss

My 86 5000CS Turbo (5 speed) has the same horrible loss of power when the AC
compressor is on. My system has the larger GM compressor that was typically
used on the GM V8 engines. Although the AC puts out a lot of cool air I
find the power loss very annoying as well. I've noticed the factory manual
wiring diagrams show a 1st gear AC cutout switch on some of the 5000 cars.
Mine does not have this switch installed. I also use the ECON switch to shut
off the AC when I want to accelerate quickly.
