I have several projects going on at the moment. One of them, I'd like to keep a clean look under hood and also not rob power from the already not so very powerful engine. I looked into robbing an electric A/C compressor unit off one of these newer hybrids or all electric cars, but finding info on voltages to run it, and wiring them, seems to be nearly impossible. Most shops, including dealers, don't even understand them. While searching eBay for a cheap candidate to do surgery on, I came across this unit. (Link and pic below) It seems simple enough and uses standard Asian style fittings for the A/C lines. I have done my own A/C work on my vehicles for nearly 30 years. I don't see any issues with installing it and making it work. My idea of trunk mounting or possible chassis mounting is unknown. The eBay seller doesn't respond to my questions other than to quote the info in the eBay listing. Has anyone done this conversion? How did it turn out? What is the noise level, and where is the compressor unit mounted?
