Not a complaint Jonny H but it will be great when you can make all the set-up, controls, and updates work via iPhone with no need for a computer, Windows or otherwise.

I wouldn't hold your breath, attaching something to Android is more likely. Apple charges for the privelege of connecting hardware to an iPhone, and I don't think it's probably worth their while to do this.

^ We have a working iPhone app in prototype which talks to the AC via BLE. The big issue is supporting both IOS and Android without having to maintain two code bases. Looking a Google Flutter right now, could be an option.

Okay, got everything installed and went to get it charged, 30 minutes to evacuate system about 15 minutes to fill 20oz or 1.250lb. Ambient temp was 80 degrees, started car and got idle up around 2300rpm turned on system and got it down to about 37 degrees at center vent in 5 ?? minutes or so. Went for a drive with windows up and the car cooled down nicely, I was getting quite a bit of cold air from the lower ducts but I have no way to adjust while driving ( from my own design, nothing to do with classic). Will try to adjust so more air is coming in center vent.

This was all done with the 90A alternator will be installing the 150A tomorrow and reset values see what we come up with.

On the first day after charging ac, yesterday, I went by my buddies shop, and bounced some ideas around and he came up with a vent that will mount to bottom of kneepad. We did one prototype in his 3D printer, 6 hours to print the part, to check for fit and it fits perfect! We will load his printer with black vinyl and make another with some ears for mounting and maybe a slight redesign. Debating on 2 vents or 1, one on passenger and one on driver or just one in the center. we are also fabbing an aluminum piece that will screw into the blend valve from the bottom with a 90 degree bend so that the ducting goes from one hard mount to another with clamps holding it in place instead of the compression fit, and also keep the ducting tucked up tight under the dash.

That custom vent is super nice - looks like it belongs there for sure!

I'm also really jealous of you folks that live in areas that have daytime ambient temps of 80 F this time of year - fookin 86 at 2am here last night, which is not unusual.

Removing the support structure must have been tedious in that vent?!

6 hours to print, 6 hours of removing support structure!

I've heard good things about Flutter from people who would know. React Native is a great alternative as well, though it makes more sense if you also have a website that is related to the app (so perhaps not as handy here).

If there's any way to embed a simple HTTP server on the controller, I suspect getting a general interface set up would be dead-simple, but I'm going down a rabbit hole here...

Just want to add in this thread of my recent experience this week with Jonny:

I happened to be visiting London and emailed Jonny that I would like to take a look at the A/C working in person. Jonny was gracious enough to pick me up and drop me off from the train station near his part of England in his amazing 911 SC that was running frigid, ice-cold A/C. Having just come from hot and humid Houston, TX, I was immediately sold.

Jonny also was kind enough to show me around his workshop with his other products. I can say first-hand that it's a first-class operation based on constant testing, development, and solid empirical evidence of results achieved. His passion and meticulous way of approaching product development based on his technical background is truly impressive.

Will be ordering an A/C system myself for my cars in Texas. Looking forward to adding these amazing systems to keep me cool.

Jonny - thanks again for taking the time to show me around and letting me experience riding in your 911 ripping through the English countryside. Wonderful times!

This has been a fantastic thread to follow. Doesn’t surprise me at all that Jonny and team run a first rate operation. He has been extremely thoughtful and attentive keeping us informed of their progress. Fortunate to have suppliers and forums like this for our 911s!

The irony of all of this is owners who would remove the sunroof for a minimal weight savings, decrease structural integrity and then add weight and complications back into their car.

New YouTubeVideo Is UP!

This video series documents my installation of the Classic Retrofit Electrocooler Air Conditioning system into my 1969 Porsche 911.

This is part 4. Today I work on finishing the ducting and A/C Lines.

Average temperature of 76º in San Diego? Take it to Houston, TX.

OK, so I saw this image on a video showcasing the high output alternator and took a screen grab. What's the story with what looks like a duct insulator on the top left side of (right side in the photo) the blower unit? Is this a recommendation? Included in the kit? Does it even help?
