Re: [T3] heaterboxes


Toby, the standard Type 3 heat exchangers are BETTER  than the Type
1 (apart from being longer and with the right outlet pipe size, and
all OE quality).  They work well, particularly in the Fastback or
Notch with their smaller internal air volume.  As there are
thermostats in the unit that joins the rear bulkhead, I guess if you
want a higher temperature you could try disabling the cold-air feed,
but that might damage the plastic parts inside the car.

I guess if you only had Type 1 available, it would be possible to
extend the outlet exhaust pipe, and link the heat outlet somehow.
