So a thought.......

VW installed two old tube style condensers under the vehicle with one fan.

With the new serpentine tube condensers, is their efficiency such that probably only one is needed?

I am a huge fan of R12a (RedTek) and have used it for years with great success.

As I understand the design of the unit sucks air up, off the highway and blows it against the chassis?

The cooling fan on the 14x20x4 1/2" one that Nostalgic Air sells claims it moves 1000CFM of cooling air.
It fails to say the capacity of the Condenser though........ the core is only 13x18 and they fail to state a thickness for it.
