chief tool Nice......
I notice you have a hole where a wiper motor is supposed to go.......

Heaters are over rated (down here they are anyway lol)
10-6-11 2:08
Finally finished the A/C

You can make it out, but it is reading 60 degress pic was taken in the middle of the day.

Just have to throw in some heater hose and ill have a heater as well.

chief tool you can get high side ports that can be inserted into the flexible line. you can also get weld in ports that you can add into any line.

without a high side port it might be difficult to trouble shoot any problems that arise.

So it might be worth adding one before you gas up the system...

BlueInfinity48 Here is what I have so far. Not much, but this is pretty much all I need, minus the circuit for the HVAC controls.

I took the accumulator side of the discharge line from a 1G and

and the compressor side of the discharge line from a 2G.

Just have to save $$ to buy a new compressor, condensor, evap, accu, and orifice tube. This only thing I won't have though is a high side port. I'm sure I can manage without it.

yea, we have that here too. there's actually trucks that will come to your house, and fab up the lines for you. or you can go into most any napa auto parts, and they can fab you up any line you need. its how i did my custom power steering lines.

chief tool Yeah I am having fun modifying an a/c system at the moment.

A couple of things I have found in general, there are lines off different cars that are close enough to fit.

Also there are people in this country anyway who will make you a custom line.
So far I havent needed to use them....all you need to do is bend up a coat hanger into the shape of the hardline you need and they can make it up.

I would have though that you'd be able to more or less use the entire system off a 2G and just adapt to your 1G evaporator core. the 2G condenser is a close fit into the GD probably the same in the probe.

Hey guys it has been a while since I have posted in here, but the car feels amazing. Bought a keyless remote awhile back. Programmed it. Works like a charm. I ended up taking off the PS headers and put the stock logs and y-pipe on. Sounds so much better. Throwout bearing went out and destroyed the input shaft. Bought a tranny from polarexpress, Duralast HP clutch from AutoZone and a Fidanza from dan san. I also did the MAF conversion. Still working on boost, but before I boost, my next big project is to put in A/C and heater. and then eventually wire up the factory boost gauge and VMM. I had removed the ducting and everything. So far I have wired up the HVAC controls to the blower motor assembly. I will posted pics. Since I am using a complete 96 harness I cant use the HVAC control because they wont fit in the dash, so I will have a separate circuit for this. When I install the ducts and everything back behind the dash. I will have to wire in the illumination and the clutch cycling switch. The wire from the switch to the comp. clutch is already ran through the factory '96 harness.
The a/c lines will be the hardest part. I have the factory 89 condensor, evap, and accum. I also have the line from the evap to the condensor, which is factory from the 89. I will need a line from the accum. to the compressor and from the compressor to the the cond. I will keep you updated on this.

BlueInfinity48 Well it took me three months. I worked on it almost everyday for 2-5 hours.

rebel2k4 That's a really cool project though, nice work.
How many hours would you estimate you have invested? I'm right around the 400 hour mark at this point with my Ranger....

I'm not saying you will have a problem, just stating it is not the standard mount point. If you have the rear inner mount (I don't remember on the 1g F2/F2T), the combination of both will probably be better assuming you haven't extremely stressed either to get them to line up without modification.
The mount style he used is identical to the MX3. This is FAR superior than the crap PGT/MX6 mount.

That's why that retarded tranny saver bracket was necessary. The way they did it from the factory was horrible and breaks the side of the case off in the PGT/MX6

The MX3 style (same as 1G) is the way to go. I NEVER broke a trans case, nor did any one else on the MX3 forums.

Furthermore, there are now many people swapping out the crap PGT crossmember and rear trans mount for the MX3 V6 mount for this very reason.

an FE3 for sure, but the f2t is too jerky for how smooth the 2gens drive...not to say it wouldn't be an interesting swap, but I think this is a better fit, but an fe3 in a 2gen would be as good or better of a fit...

vacuum leaks can do alot of strange things, glad to see it got worked out, though

BlueInfinity48 OK i capped of the open vac ports. plugged up the hole in my intake tube. and wow the car pulls so much harder. car runs 100% better. i didn't think that would make that much of a difference.

I ran nitrous on it 75 shot never had any problems. i feels slower than when the engine was in my 96. the motor was swapped out with a 94 engine before i bought the car.

BlueInfinity48 I noticed two vacuum ports hooked to nothing. just open. the intake tube has a hole from the nitrous nozzle. i think the brake booster hose has cracks in it. i will also check my vris.. also the alignment is off pretty bad so when i get on it the tire vibration and squeels and shit. let me fix my problems and then get next to a 2g and see what happens.

OK when i pull out my dipstick my car shuts off. i pulled it out half way it sputtered then i pushed it back and it smoothed out.
