Alfaholics Air Conditioning System
£3,500.00 GBP (ex vat)
We have developed this superb air conditioning system allowing you to drive your 105 series Alfa in comfort, whatever the weather! As developed for Alfaholics GTA-R 009 for Dubai market and now fitted on many GTA-R and other Alfaholics workshop builds.
The system uses a bespoke designed heater box, featuring both an air conditioning evaporator and a heater matrix, which replaces the original unit and mounts to the normal fixing points under the dashboard. The air conditioning pump is operated using a simple on/off switch, whilst the two original cable controls and fascia panel are retained. The temperature control lever regulates the flow of hot water through the heater matrix and can therefore be used to blend warm air into the cool conditioned air in order to achieve the desired temperature. Blended air can then be directed either to the dashboard or to the footwell using the direction lever. The heater box has the same size air outlets as the 2nd series heater boxes fitted to most 105s, but it can also be adapted to work with the earlier style 4 dash-vent cars. We now also offer separately 2 different sizes of billet air vents that can be fitted into both early and late dashboards to complete the installation as done on Alfaholics GTA-R builds.
The air conditioning pump is the very latest compact high-efficiency unit which enables a neat installation under the bonnet. The kit comes with mounting brackets to fit the pump on a Twin Spark engine down low on the inlet side to keep the unit as hidden as possible using the standard crank pulley as per the majority of our GTA-R builds. A Nord fitting kit is also available, which comprises mounting brackets for the pump and a billet aluminium crank pulley with the second belt position required to run the pump, in Nord application the pump is fitted up high on the exhaust side of the engine as per US market factory a/c cars. The condenser unit is thin and compact and therefore minimises disruption to air flow through the water radiator.
The kit is supplied complete with heater/evaporator box, pipes, unions, toggle switch, pump, drier bottle, condenser, electric fan & trinary switch, as well as plumbing and wiring diagrams to ensure the kit operates correctly. The kit needs to be installed by a competent professional with experience fitting air conditioning kits or by a skilled engineer enthusiast with similar previous experience with air conditioning.
Please note that on late 105/115 GT and Spider with factory steel shrouding in front of the radiator that you need to cut holes in the shrouding to pass the air conditioning pipes through. We regret that on Giulia Saloons, there is not enough space between the radiator and the front panel to physically install the condenser and fan unit due to the lack of frontal overhang/body space, thus making installation of this system not really viable.
