Air Condition

PostPost by: lotuselanman » Thu Nov 29, 2012 3:44 am

Gidday,
I am getting closer to completing the rebuilding of my +2.
Tweaked Zetec engine with EFI, T9 5 speed, 3.5 Diff and 14" wheels.
This will be my final resto job for me, a car thats suit my needs, one I can sprint or Hillclimb as well as travel briskly from a to B.
As a Dweller of South east Queensland, commonly known as 'Goszone" in the country of Australia, Gorgous one day superb the next. That is apart from Cyclones, Floods and bags of humidity. Now to combat the heat my mind turns to Air conditioning. While servicing my Wifes Mitsubishi Mairage I had a good look at there system that works so efficently. Skinny little intercooler, compact Compressor and the rest tucked under the miniscule dash.
I know this subject has come up before but the Systems are so compact and efficent these. Has anyone had dealings with the modern unit,
or maybe even fitted one.
I am keen for the polite input and advice of the Forum.
Les.

Hi Les

It's under discussion in the mods area, take a look and see if it has something to offer.

If you get the AC installed and ever want to sell the car, let me know. I think some of us here in Texas would enjoy our summer drives much more with AC.
