    3 choices:

    live with the heat...

    buy that kit and make it fit...

    or look into junkyards...
    i think you could use most parts off either a crx with a/c or a civic hatch with a/c
    and then get the compressor that fits your motor...


    edit:
    but thats a fuckin good deal for a complete a/c system...

    you ever price a compressor, or an evaporator? or the condensor?
    shit is dumb money...

    Boneyard it. If you can't piece it together from scrap, don't bother. Unless you REALLY need a/c.

    Buy a P30 Del Sol compressor bracket, and buy the kit for a CRX. That's all you need.

    Will that work on a CRX with a swap? I wanted to keep my AC when I did my swap too so I bought the $200 bracket from place racing, but never acutally used it. If you want i still have the compressor, bracket, condensor, and a line I had fabricated.

    EDIT: This is Bl6Crx, i didn't realize my girlfriend was logged in lol.

    I immediately had my AC recharged in the Audi. It's just too fucking hot. 90+* weather, I need my AC. I never would have been able to deal with the civic. I weould have to do 110 to cool myself off.

    The JuKyard....I got all my parts from there for 50 bux....
    This Is WHat I Used in my 93 civic. I got parts from 3 different cars..lol but it works...... :p

    98 civic under dash blower tingy
    95 gsr ac compressor
    ac lines from 93 civic and some from 98 civic
    condesner fan tingy from a 94 civic....

    Oh and the V belt from an integra Gsr....
    The only problem i had was that I could use the Tensioner on mines so i hooked up the ac comp. belt strait to the crank wihtout it....sux but it works...hihihih

    Even though thats not a bad price for a new AC setup....

    :eek:t:
    This is Formby's thread..Start your own....
    By the way you need the compressor for the engine you have..b18=b18 compressor...
    Or if im not mistaken they sell a bracket for you to use your old d16 one..Not sure

    To use a Civic compressor on a B series, you need the 94-95 DelSol P54 bracket, or the pre 2000 CRV bracket. Or if you have a B series compressor, use the P30 bracket.
