I plan on removing the PS and (unused) A/C pumps on my '92 Camaro (3.1) soonish. Well, whenever I decide it's time to do more wrenching on it. Probably the same day I pull the the front end off to change the 3 blown/non working headlights.

That'll the be same day I trim the exhaust down and make a side-exit pipe in front of the "too-wide-rear-tires-that-cost-me-more-than-the-stupid-car-did".

Of course, eventually I plan on using a Mustang II rack and pinion setup to save some front weight, too, because I'm also putting a 3800SC under the hood. Gotta compensate for the extra weight there.

Oddly, the cars with the 3800SC got better MPG (and obviously much, much more power) than the 3100 cars did. Hm.
