    AC compressor

    wondering if anyone knows how to determine ac compressor size/capacity/efficiency to drive both a front and rear ac system? ie 1 compressor is gonna drive 2 ac units in my firebird...any ideas? fyi i have a sanden sd7b10 currently and concerned it may not be "big" enough. thanks

    Give vintage air tech support a call. They are good people and will steer you in the right direction. FYI there is a lot more to a good system than just the compressor size.

    Wouldn't it be easier (and lighter weight) to just use one BIG system? Two if them means carrying some redundant stuff. An F-body interior is not very big.

    IIRC the condenser size is one of the major limits on AC capacity. The system has to get rid of all that heat being taken out of the cabin.
