so that would mean that you have not change to the AAN belt set up, but what I'm wondering is will the compressor interfere with the turbo at its stock location?

it theoretically should not interfere with the turbo, the stock aan oil return line would not work with it and so an s2 oil pan or other provision would need to be made for the oil return line. the compressor should fit i'm worried about some of the other hard lines that are used which i might have to have made out of rubber to make it work.

what about the AAN set up would there be enough room for it in front of the radiator and custom made lines?

thats a question i couldnt really answer, you are talking with a sidemount radiator? I would assume not but this is purely speculation, you could easily pop your hood and put the compressor there and see if it fits...

yes side mount, may have to tilt it a little. I would prefer to use the AAN belt set-up, I will have to see went I put it back together.

I going to try to put the AAN A/C compressor in the 7A location to see if it'll line up, if it does I will put in a idler pully between the crank and compressor, mesure and reroute the belt.

wow that is suprising, never really seen that, if it were me doing it i would perfer to cut out original from the donor and weld into the cq, I assume they are very similar if not exactly the same.

I'm a little puzzeled as why the 90 sedan would have paint interior and not the my coupe maybe if it would of been painted it wouldn't have rusted due to the extra protection.

Dave was the interior of your coupe painted? BTW your tread was one of the first one I read before starting this project

no mine are not painted. The model year 1995 coupes in europe had the option of black "upper" interior trim, i imported it all from europe, except the headliner which i recovered myself.

The inside of my 91 coupe was all painted. Some of the tar board was put down after primer and then painted red and some of the tar board was put down after it was pained red.
