More good progress on 924 4.2L. Engine harness laid out and made a neat little metal lid for it so it can be removed.

Hope you all have a good weekend ahead of you. Got a bit more knocked out pn my 924 4.2L.
I was going to use the A8 coolant reservoir, but was far to tall for everywhere. So I got a hold of the 2.8L ones and it fits perfectly. Also sectioned off the giant harness down to engine, Fuse box. Relays, instrument cluster and power. Recieved my intake spacers from 034motorsports and they fit perfect. *normally meant for the 1.8t but the 1.8t and 4.2l basically use the same head* I still have a lot to do and a lot of cleaning 😂

Hey Folks. Sorry I have not been able to really do much lately. Between work, House hunting and maintaining the main Family car. Been busy! I do have an update. I am going to be using a 12volt electric AC compressor system. Since I had to move my Alternator, Steering rack and steering knuckle. Pushed my plans out. I was originally going to have a belt driven compressor on the right side of the engine and the Alternator on the Left side. Sadly, the left side no long has room lol. I will post up pictures when I begin! I hope you all are doing good and been enjoying some car stuff lately.

Received my 12 Volt AC compressor system today. I will be doing some mock ups a little later on. But may test it on another 944 that I own.

Finding space is always a challenge in engine swaps. Especially a swap like yours that hasn't been done often. It must be quite an effort pioneering methods to deal with every little issue. Keep it going!

I'll be interested to hear how the electric compressor works out.

Cheers, Brian

Hi Brian, This has certainly been a challenge for space. A few people have began this swap, but never finished it from what I have found. Been a lot of fun to come up with was to fit what I need. This car will have some good tech in it. Like Heated Seats. Sat Nav, Cruise control among others I can jam into it lol. Thanks for the Push to keep rolling forward. I have been working a lot of hours late, Trying to get set up to buy a house of our own. I will post up about the Electric AC set up. I am thinking of installing it in one of my other 944s to put it to the test.

Have a good one!
Devin

Wow! I've not been aware there are electric A/C compressors
(That's the Chinese one that sells for around $200?)

Nor the electric water pumps, until being enlightened by my friend with limited space in his engine bay due to engine swap

Hey Kondzi

It is a neat set up for not a lot of money. was around $300 with shipping and taxes. I am going to set it up in my 951 so I can legit test the system and make sure it can support what I need. If not. Then I will opt for a more expensive set up. Or do a 120Volt set up with a Phase converter to 12volt.

Please post what your discoveries will be. Might think of using such setup in mo other cars that have A/C and limited space. I already used Electric power steering pump from a Mercedes A class in a 964.

I most certainly will. It is a bit of a gamble and all. but worth if it works out. I should be able to fit it next weekend.
