Drop-in Parallel Flow Condenser

Post by code »

Does anyone know of a drop-in parallel flow condenser that does not require new hoses being made? I've searched for hours and haven't been able to find anything. Trying to avoid new hoses if possible, the car was converted to R134a a while back but they used the existing condenser.

I've searched and failed.

I recommend Austin's kit: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=154173

For what it's worth, I've installed Austin's kit - it's a winning design and well worth the price and effort.

I have also installed Austin's kit w/ compressor and dryer. No noticeable drop in HP when running and I was getting 34-36F at the vent on a ~88F degree day. Won't really know how well it works until next summer.
