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

https://www.carbuild...-car-heater-kit

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......................

So, that heater seems small. But when it’s behind my centre console it’s mot so small. So I’m going with just one bit vent style hole in the side to blow straight in to the footwell. As it’s only going to be used to warm the car up before I get in it on early summer mornings, this isn’t a problem for me. Will upload more pics when it’s fitted
