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 parts used for the swap ! Empty A/C Lines Needed

Post  Porsche951toLS3 Wed Jul 11, 2018 1:37 am

I have my GM compressor, condenser and dryer in place. I have the old Porsche A/C lines.

Does anyone sell the lines needed to connect everything or should I continue to have them built locally?

I was just checking on what might be out there.

You'll have to get the lines made locally.

Does anybody know what exact is included in the AC Kit. I'm afraid it will be a bunch of hoses, fittings, and pieces, and you have to figure out what to do with it.

Here from the listing:

" Mini Compressor, Brackets, Belt, Bolts, Tenssioner, Condenser, Dryer, AC hoses for kit"

Did anybody buy that kit and installed it ? Would be nice to get some info on that, and maybe pictures.

I have no problem to spend the $400, but I would like to know beforehand what's in the box.

Thanks

I too am interested in where this kit is you are talking about. Currently I have everything except the hoses. It would be nice that they were already done, but most likely there are too many variations to this project.

Me too. I have been driving my car for about 8 years. Every year I day tis is the year I am going to make some lines. Summer seems to go by, weather cools and I say in the spring. Seems like a good opportunity for someone who wants to invest in the tools. I came across this thread from an RX site that has great info.

It was listed in the spreadsheet I got from Kent. There is nothing at the website about the AC kit. At least I cannot find any info.

This is from the spreadsheet:
Air Conditioning
AC Kit - Parts below $369.99
* Mini Compressor, Brackets, Belt, Bolts, Tenssioner, Condenser, Dryer
AC Hoses for Kit

This is my year to finish the A/C. I'm going to get the kit from Kent but haven't yet found the compressor he recommends.
Does anyone have any pics of an installed kit? Any hose routing ideas for the high pressure hose could help.
thanks

I'd prefer to get it from him. He may not have any- he sent me a note earlier this week saying what I needed to get and I just haven't found that exact part number yet.

Great ! Once you get it, would you post some pictures of the lines, and how they are routed. Since now the compressor is at the bottom right side of the engine, I'm wondering how the lines are arranged, where the dryer is placed, and how it's connected to the condenser.

It looks a lot easier to get the the connection points at the fire wall with the LS1 compared with the original engine.

Would be great if we could get some diagrams and instruction together, so it makes it easier for member of this forum.

Mine has a GM compressor and fabbed-up flex lines from the compressor on the passenger side, under the rad, to the Porsche driver side dryer, then to the DS firewall via the Porsche hard lines, which then go back across the firewall to the Porsche firewall fitting on the passenger side.

I'd sure love to go from that Porsche pass side fitting, along the pass side wheel well, to the pass side compressor, with the dryer on the pass side too.

Has anyone done that?

I have used the factory lines and adapted to them to run from drivers side to the passenger side. I have also modified the lines at the firewall ports and run the lines all on the passenger side. I prefer the passenger side because it gets rid of all the old factory rubber hoses which will leak from age, and the fact that r134a refrigerant has smaller molecules that will leak through R12 hoses. I cut and weld the fittings that come off the firewall ports to make them point to the passenger side.

So you basically weld a U-turn off the firewall ports, so the lines go toward the passenger side instead of toward the driver's side?

No. I cut the fitting and turn it to face the passenger side then weld it back together. So it's actually about a 45 degree off of the firewall pointing to the area between the engine and firewall.

That sounds pretty slick!

Any chance you can post a photo?

Drier is located under the right headlight, right next to the radiator. Hard to get a good pic of it.
