Simple minded me can easily figger out how to shut off the compressor during
WOT acceleration, you simply disengage the compressor clutch.  The deal with 
shutting down the alternator is a little more intriguing.  Are you messing
with the regulator?  It seems like a 90A relay in-line might be a bit much.
What other accessories get shut down?  Water pump? (how?), hydraulic fluid 
pump?  (I'll probably skip that one ...)

Of course I must remember to wire the WOT switch to the valve that bypasses 
the exhaust system .... ;)

It'll be nice to stop having to hit the OFF or ECON buttons on the C/C every 
time I need a good launch on a hot day ....
