HAS ANYONE TRIED THIS????

i heard from someone b4 that it is posable to turn an old a/c compresser into an on board air compresser, is this posable and how do you do that? if it works im thinking about trying it out. what would the best set up be for my 2.5 4 banger? could i use the brackets and compresser off a amc eagle 258? will this take away any of my much needed horse power when it is not running?

thanks
mike

yeah, it's been done before, it is commonly done w/ a york compressor. check out <a href="http://www.onboardair.com" target="_blank">www.onboardair.com</a> for info, they have a lot of good links there. If you use a stock compressor you have to have some thing to take oil out of the line, then put oil back into the air before it goes into the compressor or something like that. I picked up a york compressor out of a late 70's volvo for 35 dollars.

Thats all an a/c compressor is... an air compressor (that compresses R134a or R12 instead of pure air). So, mount all the lines, plumbing, bracketry to an a/c compressor and bingo! onboard air!
