Customer Question
What is the best...

What is the best A/C Compressor upgrade for my 1982 Firebird? Will it require different brackets? Thanks

Hasent worked for 10 years. Performance was always weak.

2000.000+ miles. My local shop will install.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
