I’ve just had this delivered today....

Dimensions are similar to standard heater and it blows very well. I’ll be mounting it in the normal heater position....ish and making a custom centre console that it will blow straight through the sides of.

I have fitted the T7 designs heater, attached it to the dash shelf with nylon spacers offsetting it, working really well, a little noisy but a good upgrade

I want to look at getting a duct adaptor made for the underside to connect to the fresh air inlet on the inner wing

I researched aftermarket heaters for my MGB and they all failed as there was no provision for fresh air input.They seemed to be for kit car fitment as regulations require a heater to be fitted,performance seemed optional.Things may have moved on so I will watch with interest.Steve..

like it, very much, bit pricey but about the range that I am looking at........wouldn't mind a few pics when you have done it before I lash out and treat myself......................
