    So, with my intercoolers taking up the spot where I am sure the AC/Heat unit is supposed to go.... more out side the "box" thinking was required.

    While Wayne was up here last we kicked around a lot of ideas...this one made the most sense....



    I will run the ducting back up into the back of the cabin. The defrost ducts will merge together and go through the tunnel up into the dash and split in two....

    I have to make a custom fan box to rotate the blower so it draws air from the trunk... but I will do that with the body off.

It's hard mounted on each end.... hard to see in the picture.... here you can see the 3 bolt flange that I had to attached the universal to with another adapter that converted the 3 bolt flange to a 4 bolt plate that the universal is bolted to....

    Looking great. Hope to have ours sitting on it wheels this weekend so I can roll it out of the garage so I can get the Roadster ready for Huntington Beach next weekend.

    Initial Drive down the street to validate "go-cart" status... rough alignment is in, breaks seem ok, windshield and hatch fit... couldn't hammer down, no belts and no tune... so more to follow...

    It is definitely loud... but does sound pretty mean or angry
