How much HP does the A/C "steal"?

I can feel a modest difference in pull when running the A/C. Many years ago when i had a first gen Integra, turning off the A/C was like a poor man's turbo. It's not nearly as bad in the 3.7 but it is noticeable.

Just wondering (for curiosity's sake) how much pulling power does running the A/C take from the driveline?
