Trying to Kill the drone at 2000 rpm. Should help quite a bit. Just going to have to get creative with a brace for the end to make sure I don't break the welds or anything.



This way, or possibly one right behind the other one:

More partial projects:

A/C Condenser acquired. It has an odd twist to it that I may try fixing, but besides that everything looks decent. I just need to figure out the mounting and get some lines made. I also need to figure out wiring. Seems Colin no longer works for MRS, which is probably the reason I haven't seen anything from him in a while; but that also means there probably isn't any hope of product updates. Can't even find them on their website any more.

Saw a thread earlier this week that implied this. This isn't good. What are you thinking about for wiring???

Going to see if the MRS device allows A/C to work, but I need to move the pressure switch from passenger side to the drivers side. Hopefully that works.

If the MRS device doesn't work with A/C I am going to have to look into switching canbus/going standalone

Printed in PLA as a test print. Has a very low tolerance for heat/uv light. I have PETG which will withstand the heat and UV much better. I just need to get them printed.

Swap time makes a canbus module for gm swaps. You may look into contacting Mitch he is the one who made my harness. Gerald also may have a solution for you he is on this forum.

I would still reach out to Colin, quietly, on the side.
I see him about once every other week or so at car meetups.

Fitting and hose came in, I will need a few more fittings, mainly ones for the factory pressure switch, and with fill ports.



Also need the fittings for the condenser:

Where and how much did you get those fittings and hoses for? Does it require a specific tool to crimp the ends or are you taking them to a shop to get crimped?

$70 from ebay. and I will take it to a shop to get crimped. Though I don't think the crimp tools are too crazy to buy from amazon or ebay.

Specific to any certain vehicles or just custom?
