Stock-looking engine with modern style AC, Making summers more bearable.
Air-Conditioned 1965 VW Beetle. Engine appears stock but is actually a 2110cc to give it some power. It’s very enjoyable to drive, and unlike stock beetles, this one moves!
Professionally-made hose on the left is all we use.
The cheap hose on the right is what comes in the “kit” that some sell.
Unlike the old York style compressor systems, we use kits with efficient rotory style compressors. These style of compressors use very little horsepower to drive the systems, but as with all of our builds we like to add a little more power (ie. upping displacement, ratio rockers or even full stroker engine builds). We also suggest upgrading the cooling systems to keep the engine and you cool in the summer months. Whether it be adding an extra oil cooler/fan combo, or upgrading from the in fan shroud style oil cooler to the later model “Doghouse” cooling system. This is also a great time to install a Blazecut system to protect your investment in case of fire in the engine compartment.
