iirc the voltage will be the same but the current will be different.

normal speed = lower current due to resistor pack

higher speed = no current resistance.

Both will go down, but the spal fan will function fine. I would just hook up the spal fan directly to both low and high, and I believe that's how I have mine, worse case situation, your car sounds like a jet about to take off, but a/c stays nice and cold.

yea i forgot about kvl.

thats the way my fan sounds all the time until i added a temp sensor.


On atleast nicks car. He has 1 red wire and 1 brown wire. The red wire is already connected to both the resistor pack and high speed side. this is his power. The brown is his ground.

For nicks car he would connect like so.

Spal <----------> car
orange + <-----> red +
black - <------> brown -

what about water to air intercoolers, wouldnt that help?

it may be easier to place a slim radiator instead of the thick IC up front.

So reviewing this.

1. What i gather is you can use an oem condenser and it may fit but you will probably have to get new lines made.

2. I think for some it may require making a custom bracket to avoid hitting the manifold as there is room there.

3. removing the oem cooler and adding an aftermarket oil cooler will clear up room and improving the cooling of oil.

4. converting everything over to r-134a and basically getting custom ac lines made.

Cost analysis.

1. ~$200 for condenser and possible custom mounting brackets to move and fit between inter cooler and radiator.
2. ~$100 for custom bracket/welding/modifying and new bolts as well as new belt.
3. ~$125 for new lines and oil cooler.
4. ~$100 drier, expansion valve, and seals was + cost of freon

Time analysis.

1. 2hr
2. 2hr
3. 2hr
4. 6hr??


Missing anything?

Picture research
Location of oem lines

The conversion to R134a including the drier, expansion valve, and seals was $65 + cost of freon
