We need a SuperCharger for our AC
Removing the footwell panels definitely helps. I thought the same thing so when I had the airbox out I looked at the blower motor. It does in-fact move a ton of air. I further sealed some potential air leaks, but it only helped slightly.
I agree that most of the air must be getting lost/blocked in the plumbing, but have never looked at all the plumbing to see if there would be any way to make it more free flowing.
I would be interested too if anyone else has looked at the plumbing route. I really am only interested in the AC vents. Maybe blocking off the lower or upper vents would push more air out the AC vents?
