  • A/C Conversion

    With the rather limited availability of the HR-980 compressor, has anyone attempted to adapt the A/C compressor from a early 90s 2.3L LX into an SVO? I have already converted to a serpentine setup, so the belt drive is irrelevant to me. The only thing I could see being a problem is that the lines may run too close to the turbo with the N/A setup. Has anyone done this swap or already done some research on it?

    Bart,

    Check with Hoze Wizards in Loganville,Ga (770)554-0044
    They may have a mounting kit available.
    They are the a/c supplier for Late Model Resto and Motion Dynamics.

            I have been recently contemplating putting a different compressor on my SVO for the past couple of years. From a size standpoint, the newer compressors should fit easily, it is the orientation of the outlet fittings that could cause issues. The A/C compressor on my Subie is smaller than the alternator, the thing is tiny! I am sure it is a little more efficient as well as being made for R134. I would be interested in seeing Mike's kit at the Reunion.
