HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

A/C condensers

Post  Techno Duck on Sun Jun 24, 2012 10:17 pm

Will be putting a/c back in my car with the LS1 so i need to pickup another condenser. Are you guys having good results using the original style tube and fin condensers with 134a or is it worth considering going with a bar and plate style condenser meant for 134a from Griffiths (Paragon carries a bar and plate style also). My car was never converted from R12 when i still had the a/c in it so i dont have any point of reference how good it performs.

Bar and plate style is 2x the cost of an OEM tube and fin.. but i think i have suffered enough sweating my ass off in this car that i dont care! Deleting the (working) a/c on the car was probably my most regretful choice made with the car.

I would use a parallel flow condenser because they are much higher efficiency. R134a needs more condenser than R12. However, I would just buy a universal one. The prices for the ones from your links are way too high.

I'm using the OEM one, it seems to work fine. I'm sure the other ones are more efficient and work better though...

I have had the same experience as Doc, orig condenser and R12. Works great in the LA heat.

Thanks for the input, the car will only have to deal with the a north east summer which isnt nearly as bad as a southern Cali so i guess a new OEM condenser should do fine.
