Ahh, isn’t this is a breath of fresh, cool air? Vintage Air has just announced the release of their brand new SureFit Kit, designed for 1982-92 Camaro and Firebird. We ran passed a first-look at SEMA 2022, but these are the official details below in the press release from them.
Yes, there has been kits from them in the past that will work in a third-gen, but this example is their latest; with the latest tech, a higher-capacity air compressor, and a design that was intentionally made as a direct-fit install for 1982-92 Camaro and Firebird, right from the get-go.
Your car already has A/C from the factory? Perfect, because this kit is a substantial upgrade to the one in your car. The head unit replaces your OEM piece, and the factory air vents remain in place. The other components replace your OEM system, but, it already utilizes R134 rather than the obsolete R12, and it output is much more comparable to a modern vehicle.
