Somebody is giving you a line of crap! Tha a/c has nothing to do with the camshaft, except you may have a high/low idle speed problem on hot days with the air on.

Most of the remote motors are to run the water pump on drag cars and surely would not have enuff grunt to run an a/c compressor!

a/c

There may be issues with several things-one a HOT day High HUMIDTY a high stall converter and the heat load from a/c may[will] cause over heating.Also I belive an a/c comp. under the same conditons will need more power than a w/p would need.It takes power under Hot use.But, anything is possible.
