Jonny, will your system work for the BEHR under dash blower unit and will it give more benefit.

You could plumb the under dash pipes to the Behr unit. It will be the same volume of air but there are more vents so the air speed will be reduced. It might allow you to position the air where you want it.

Does anyone on this thread know the following? I have a LHD '66 BUT insufficient room in my smuggler box (used it for a dual master cylinder conversion). Should I order the RHD model?

I have sent emails to Johnnys company via the website but no response.

Yes, the RHD version will allow you to mount the compressor in the front of your trunk instead of the smuggler’s box.

Regards,
David

I believe that Jonnyís been away playing with a few more exotic Porsches, involving a twin spark 935, etc.

Iím due heíll respond soon but as per previous poster, yes the RHD kit will put the compressor in the front corner of the froot.

Have anyone noticed high temps at the positive terminal on the battery after running the CR A/C? A couple weeks ago I went for a couple hr drive in mid 90's deg F temp so the A/C was working hard. After the drive I put the trickle charger on which I usually do since I don't drive during a work week I noticed the positive terminal being really hot. But I did not think about taking a temp reading at that time...so yesterday I decided to take a temp reading before and after 45 min drive around 90 deg F temp.

Before drive




After 45 min drive




I'm sure the battery terminal temp was over 120 deg F after 2 hr drive several weeks ago.

I'm wondering if it's a good idea to add a positive terminal away from the battery with wiring from both alternator and electric A/C attached to minimize heat transfer (caused by high current from alt to A/C) to the battery. Any thoughts?

Resistance makes heat, first thing you should do is make sure terminal and connections are clean and tight.

Right...I agree but everything's clean and tight. So I'm wondering if anyone else noticed the terminal being warm/hot.

I wouldn't worry as long as the cable itself isn't hot - a large percentage of your increase in temp is from ambient temp (since you started out with a temp lower than ambeint). Plus then whatever else is going on in the compartment, including battery charge/discharge heat, compressor motor, etc.

As a 912E owner, I am very interested in this system! The question is whether the upgrade alternator can be used in the Type IV application. Can anyone comment on what challenges I may encounter? Everything else appears to be standard given 911S/912E likeness in all other aspects.

Has another 912E owner implemented the Classic Retrofit AC system?

Thanks, Tony

Using the evaporator in the smuggles box ?

Anyone tried this ?

Electric compressor connected to the original Porsche evaporator inside the smuggles box.

This is what I want.

greetings, Harold

They sell just the compressor and the controller for it so that should do what you want, some assemble required.

You need the half kit. You retain the Porsche evaporator, everything else is in the kit.

+1 on the 914 application Johnny. Glad to hear you are working on an alternator solution. That will probably sell stand alone also, as a supplement to your business.
