Do you know, would the Dirty Dingo kit, would it be capable of running rear AC?

I have not heard of the Dirty Dingo Mini A/C

Funny that you post that, I was on DirtyDingo website looking at that conversion / AC compressor!

Yes, it's a really nice website.

Since I don't know, I am going to ask the question.

Would / could I still use the new compressor (Dirty Dingo) and be able to run the rear AC?

Sure wish Santa was at the MALL today. I know if I sat on his lap what I would ask for!!! (I'm sure he ask me to get the h<ll off him too)

Don't wanna hi-jack here but:

I would suggest more research.
Here's what I found:
The SD7B10 Mini (in the kit) is a 100 cc (that's kinda small capacity wise) and is not an OEM piece. Some vehicles, such as the early 90's Dodge pick-ups and some Jeeps, use an 09 (90cc).

The late model Chevy vans that do list a Sanden SD replacement use a SD7H15 which is a 155cc compressor.

Like I said, more research would be required. I've done a lot of repair back-in-the-day but I know nothing about design. Vehicle AC design is a moving target. Vehicle speed, comp speed, air temps (in and out) fan speeds even vehicle color (thermal load) can influence capacity. Most are over sized most of the time and utilize accumulators or liquid receivers to handle the excess refrigerant during low load conditions.
I would call Sanden customer service or maybe a distributor such as Vintage Air.

Thank you Catfish!

All is very good information....

Santa hasn't visited yet, so I have time to do a little research....

I'll be asking Santa for that Dirty Dingo AC kit for sure, although it looks like a pain to install it with the engine already in the van. I used the DD motor mounts and was impressed by the quality.

A little update. I finally did a longer roadtrip in the van and I'm thrilled with the results. She cruises wonderfully at 70mph with plenty of passing power. However these vans weren't meant to go that fast and it gets pretty rattly in the back over 75mph or so. 70mph cruising is fine! I still haven't hooked up cruise control and I certainly miss that.

But.....but....18.6MPG on this trip. Mostly 70mph with a couple passes to 80mph. Easily a 5mpg increase on top of the doubled horsepower, easier starts, better sound, etc. I love this van!
