Mine is basically resting against the turbo blanket, and we kinda gently bent the line up/over closer to the frame rail. It kind of wedges itself in there. I'll try to remember to take some pics tomorrow and upload to photo bucket and post them up. My car is dirty but whatever, it still needs tuned and I haven't even bothered cleaning it yet
I have seen folks take the lowside to a hose shop, have them cut it and add in a few feet of rubber line then route it through the fenderwell behind the strut tower and come back into the engine bay by the radiator and into the condensor.
I myself, just built all new lines from scraps and parts using a GM condensor with the liquid line going into the TOP of the condensor and the suction line at the BOTTOM of the condensor. Made it real easy to work on the car and gets the lines out of the engine bay and away from my turbo exhaust parts. You can find pics in the 94/95 tech threads about moving A/C lines.
My car isn't tuned for the turbo setup(running on a chip tuned for my Vortech setup) so I can't comment on that yet. I took my wife and son for a quick ride last week, we got on the highway and I turned the ac on just to see if it blew cold, which it did. But as soon as I came to a stop the car wants to die, it's always done this. So I never ran the ac unless I was on the highway. I'm thinking the stock alternator/cheap battery is to blame. After I get a decent tune on it, I'm going to start working on lil issues like that when money allows.
Without the ac on, the car barely gets over 180-190(stock gauge, who knows what its really running at) That's with stock water pump, stock fan, and a stock radiator. I need to get an aftermarket temp gauge..
You can come out of the firewall with a 90* fitting and run the hose through the fenderwell entering behind the strut tower. The hardest part is that the orfice tube is in the factory line.
I built my a/c from the condensor to the evap to the compressor with a box of fittings, hose and a good hose shop to crimp the fittings for me. The only thing Ford on my system is the compressor and the condensor. Heck my evaporator is a GM unit out of a Camaro. Search the 94/95 threads for my posts and there are plenty of pictures.
Hi guys. I'm building my first turbo car. My intent is to turbo a bone stock '94 GT minus emissions equipment. I'll be installing a larger in take pump, blow thru MAF and 80lb injectors. I've read and heard that I should run head studs and better valve springs in the E7 heads. I've also read...
Here's a video of my car on the dyno. Scroll 3/4 of the way thru to see the pull. I was letting it warm up on the dyno and my friend started filming a little early. I was surprised by the power as you can tell.
I searched through the forums and couldn't find a post that really answered all my needs so hopefully this doesn't break any rules and sorry if I do but I am in highschool and I'm new to building cars. I am getting started to build a 331 stroker turbo build that's mainly a street car but I will...
Hey everyone i have a question, hopefully someone here might have the answer.
So right now i have a 1990 lx with a 331 forged internals with a stock block, edelbrock performer rpm heads, vortech v1 S trim 8lbs boost. Fuel sys consists of 42 lb inj, Ford lighting mass air, 255 walbro intank...
