I am doing this to my Carrera project, I took the hard approach and cut away the fender bulge, relocated the battery a bit and so forth.

Not yet running though, albeit I have no worries that it will work at least as well as the real 964.

Believe me, I tried to get away without it, but between the washer bottle, the bumper mount and the battery bulge, there was no good way to put it in there.

Mine looks considerably more dramatic as the car is apart, but at a minimum you would need to pull of the DS fender and related stuff to do it well.

Fender does not have to be removed. No big holes or re-shaping of inner fender panel.
Fitting the 964/993 A/C condenser:
1. Lose the giant washer tank, replace with compact unit
2. Hang from headlight bucket -- there's already a hole, and adding a 2nd hole is no big deal. Make support brackets to stabilize it.
3. Slightly modify the fan housing to clear bodywork
4. Make new A/C lines
5. Make stone guard as needed
6. Enjoy much better air conditioning

IS this to replace the rear condenser? becasue of the full bay intercooler? Since mine is a slant the head lights fold dowm into that area. I'll have to stick it in the rear fenderwell.

I think the 964 condensor and fan would fit behind the left rear tire. It's very high quality. You'd have to make a stone gaurd and some shrouding. Then the Zims kit with it's 10" fan in front of the left rear tire and your AC would work really good.

I like the big washer tank. It's my WMI tank now.
I can still spray the headlights and windsheild from it too but I use the small tank for windsheild washing most of the time.

chris thanks for the reply. is it ness. to keep the skinny one up front? i was thinking about losing it as i will have the 964 and the zimms. i have a setrab oil cooler just in front of it and i think its help is marginal at best

If it's working well (clean, fins straight), I'd keep the small front condenser -- no harm having the capacity to emit more BTUs. But if less then great condition, I'd ditch it.
A rear fender condenser is really easy, too. Even the stock wing unit works well when put in the fender with a fan on it. A wheel stone guard is a necessity.
Ken - I don't think you'll get any sizeable condenser in the front fender of a Slant; a rear fender solution makes sense for you.
