How can I tell if my 84 GTI had air?
Bought an 84 GTI which had the heater
removed as well as anything to lighten it for
auto cross. I want to reinstall the heater
but want to know if I should use one from a
non-air or an air car. Radiator had been
changed out w an aluminum no-air
radiator. No indication of any air plumbing
under the hood but things like the washer
bottle are gone too, dash was swapped for
a cab dash and no ducts too so no help
Any way I can tell otherwise? Any holes in
the firewall, etc.? Any other telltale signs?
With that amount of modification to that car, hard to say. But I don't see any reason you couldn't get a heater back into the car, without the AC unit and components.
