The center duct on the Vintage Air evaporator is rectangular, probably 8" x 1.5". I'd like to split that into two separate ducts. Has anyone tried this and have any tips for making something that will work?

Thanks,
Jeff

This is mine but I used a Vintage Super Gen II with 4 ducts. Aren't most 4 ducts?




I wonder if you could make something up with PVC to make a splitter?

You can buy a universal splitter from Vintage Air very cheap. I don't know if you can get PVC pipe in the right diameter to match hoses - 2-1/2" pipe is bigger than 2-1/2" outside diameter - plus it would be bulky.

Bruce, good looking dash, hope mine turns out that nice. The left end of the Sure-fit evaporator unit has the under dash plenum with the 2 vents on it and only 2 A/C ports built onto it as seen in this picture....http://www.vintageair.com/cat2007/36.pdf The other 2 ports are heater/defrost. If you order the 4 vent unit, the left end of the evaporator has 4 ports instead of the under dash plenum.

I used fiberglass over a wooden mold to make a plenum for my in dash center vents.

Thanks for the ideas. I sent an email to VA asking if they sell a splitter for my kit. Still waiting....
