Aftermarket A/C 69 Camaro w/94 LT1 w/Vette front bracket

Hello,

I've been searching on here and on the net for information from anyone who has done this. I'm at a point in my rebuild that adding aftermarket a/c should be easier since the front end is off the car and the interior is empty. I'm trying to decide which kit to use and if I should use a supplied compressor or use the stock Denso unit from the Vette.

Has anyone does this? Or have links to someone who has? I've found bits and pieces online but many times pictures are missing so they aren't so helpful.

Thanks
Brian

Brian, there's been tons written on this site about aftermarket AC.

There are two leading kits. Classic Auto Air and Vintage Air. I like CAA over VA because there's a way to hook the system up and retain the foot vents. Some don't like the center vent used on the VA system.

I'd use the new compressor over the stock one.

For missing photobucket pictures, there's a free patch you can download that allows you to see the pictures again. I read about it on this site.

I did a search on "vintage air or classic auto air."

Thanks for the quick feedback. I have looked through a lot of the threads here but nothing specifically shows a Sanden compressor on the LT1. I found a couple places that make complete brackets that relocate everything but I'd prefer to keep the compressor in the stock location. Looking through Classic Auto Air's website I found a York to Sanden adapter that I think with a little modification would work.
I sent Classic Auto and email this morning with a couple questions so I'll see that they say.

Thanks
Brian

I used Street and Performance wide brackets when I had an LT1 in my 68, unfortunately S&P went out of business in 2015. Back then, there were a couple of guys that used the corvette accessories. I am pretty sure that the LT1 style compressors will work but the LS style wont. The VA requires a fixed displacement style compressor (not variable).
