    Hey Peter,

    Yeah Jeremy is a good guy to work with and I know the condensor you are talking about, I too concidered that unit. It has pysically 50% more area than what you can fit in front meaning it really only needs to work at 66% capacity comparitively. I was thinking maybe have it in the spare wheel location with some holes and mech in the bash plate

    What's wrong with the factory location? Why reinvent the wheel?

    Hi, all, I too have had air con for my Syncro on my wish list for the last 20 or so years , so if there's talk of a group purchase of a particular system , I would like to be included if possible. Would be a great head start for me as I have a very limited understanding of air con at best. Thanks, Ed.

    The problem with air con in Kombis is the air circulation. No need for larger condensers, compressors etc. as it will not make any difference. The factory system works perfectly.

    Part of my air conditioning install.

    Denso compressor -as per original Subaru install. Reconditioned unit from Steve Shaw.

    Making room in the dash for air ducting - hence the plywood top - it will help give access to the top of the A/C evaporator unit with out removing the dash

    [​IMG]

    In the area were the ash try was - I now have a large opening -which also makes more room for the ducts.
    The instrument pod is a total P.o.P. -its next on the hit list. After it meets my turbo torch ! Nah.

    Hi - my installation is almost complete.
    Pipe work is complete, dash work complete.
    The components are functioning electrically - tested.
    But I can't test the installation function as my transaxle is out of the vehicle (in for rebuild)
    Therefore I can't start the engine - no starter motor.
    I wondered about starting a thread on the complete installation - is there any interest?
    A few more photos.
