Hi Folks, I am weighing the options between a VQ35 swap and RB26 swap. I have been scouring the posts and threads to find out if anyone has successfully done a VQ35 swap and retained the A/C compressor. I have used the search feature and only found passing reference to the subject, or found that most people just forgo the A/C unit. Living in San Diego it can get pretty warm and I would rather keep the A/C, or perhaps look at an RB26 swap instead and keep the A/C. The car I am looking at swapping with is 1975 280z. Thanks in advance for any input and advice.
Putting together a new 240z project with 280zx turbo swap. Car needs lots of work. Putting my plan together now and know that I need the entire AC assembly, heater core, blower assembly, and vent and control set up. I was positive that I found a post last week selling all of these parts but having now searched for the past two nights without finding it I'm increasingly convinced that it was a dream.
I have a 75 280z with a sbc swap and I have been searching for info on where you v8 z guys are hiding the vacuum bottle and solenoids for the ac system. I really would like to clean up the look of my engine bay and the big bottle is a looks killer any help would be a big help thanks. Will S. p.s. check out my build thread rolling with the punches.
Stock 280z setups use a vacuum system powered by manifold vacuum to operate various the water cocks and FICD. On a turbo system, without the vacuum accessories like the tank and VCM, using the heater is theoretically difficult, plus the control panel looks out of place in the surprisingly modern interior of the s30. So why not swap out all the vacuum actuation, and the mechanical linkage, and install the modern HVAC controls from a newer vehicle? Has anyone done this? My overall dream is to make my s30 a formidable GT even by modern standards, and it's coming along well. If nobody has tried this, I may need a few pointers as to vehicles with relatively standalone HVAC controllers. A 2000s Mustang comes to mind. The more I can shrink the size the better the end result.
