Hey Tim, are the Seltec compressors just a universal type compressor and you get the bracket kit/hoses to fit them or is there anything special I need to know. As I sit here sweating my ass off, I am thinking another $500 gamble might not be that bad off an idea....

I am thinking the Seltec you spoke of, the SBC bracket, another new drier(if you think I need one, this one has 4 miles on it) and another vac/recharge of R134a.

I guess there is no way I can get any type of credit on a trade in of my current A6? LOL?

Can you get me the brackets also? I mean I can buy it from Vintage air if its the same as a Sanden, then buy the compressor/dryer/hoses from you guys. I assume you sell the bulk hose and different fittings etc? I need to put something together. I am going to talk to the AC guy now to see if he will even work on it again....He might tell me to take it else where.......or he might be able to form his retirement portfolio around my AC repairs....

Yes I mentioned that in the other thread. I asked you to send me an email and I would provide you with some links to our mounts for you to check out.
Just so I have it email me with the vehicle data and I'll send the links.

Email sent.

I just talked to my AC guy, he refused to mount an aftermarket AC compressor/hoses on it. He said he only deals with factory equipment and doesn't want to mess with custom fitting hoses etc and trying to get them to seal. He recommended I try anothe A6 compressor, possibly a different brand....Maybe an AC Delco rebuild. Something with warranty so if we have to swap them out until we get a good one, we can. He couldn't believe it when I told him it was leaking.... I suppose I could by the gauges and do it all myself but that might be opening Pandora's box......

I am gonna think about it over the weekend..... He says there is nothing that can be causing those seals to blow out, especially at only 250psi.. He said something about the blow off valve on the back of the compressor would pop off first if the pressure skyrocketed for some reason.
