Find good air conditioning for the 930 Turbo
 
Find good air conditioning for the 930 Turbo
Hi

I am currently looking for any recommendations on being able to retrofit my 1987 930 Turbo with a modern AC system. and now it's an AC car

* On many of the forums I've been looking for, there's still the appearance of familiar names like Griffiths, Classic Retrofit or Classic Auto air. Who has used this device yet, which any climate weather can be used

Budget is also a problem. I like the Classic Retrofit because of its many effects but at almost double the cost, so what kind of price is that ok?
Thank you

Classic Retrofit is owned by Classic Auto Air now. So they are the same kit.

The Griffiths stuff is better and the customer service is better.

Either one will get you cold AC.

If on a budget, do new lines and a dryer if the compressor and evaporater are still good. You can build from there. I vote for Griffths. I had the full boat on my last 930...it was nice and cold. Excellent product and great customer service.

Eh? Did there use to be a different outfit called Classic Retrofit?

Classic Auto Air in Texas seem to do traditional A/C for classic cars.

Classic Retrofit is the UK outfit responsible for the electric A/C Electrocooler (and other excellent products: Classic Retrofit: modern technology for classic machines).

Another vote for Griffith’s. Works perfect and COLD.

Retroair is where I got mine, they were absorbed by one of the others a couple of years ago.

Thank's Steve! I guess my memory isn't totally shot.
I don't even argue anymore, I just assume I'm wrong. :D

You hear a lot of good things about Griffiths stuff and he's a good guy. Getting good AC in these cars can be like throwing darts.
Hope it works out well.
