You guys should help me figure this out. I'm trying to figure out my a/c stuff.

2004 Colorado


2009 5.3 Colorado


Not even close to same setup. For my 2004 I have everything but the line from the compressor to the firewall. But, it looks like I'll need to ditch everything to get lines 6 and 5 from the 2009..right? I'm so confused.
I'm so confused on a/c stuff. Can somebody explain this like I'm 5.

Easy peasy, lol.
Ok:
L5 hose #13 = V8 hose #6 = freon in gas condition coming from evaporator going to input compressor

L5 hose #5 = V8 hose #5 = freon still in gas condition going from compressor to the condenser

L5 hose #11 = V8 hose #7 = freon in liquid condition going from condensor to the evaporator (expansion)

For my V8 swap, I will keep the L5 hose #11, and buy the 2 other ones. Just check also the V8 part #13 which is not the same electrical plug as the L5.

I used all my factory shit and had lines custom made for it. We have a guy in town that makes the lines. We ran them all need and all we had to do was clearance the control arm mount a tiny bit and he fabricated a 90 degree mount off the compressor for it. Used the factory condenser

I kept all my factory shit off the 3.5 so we were able to reuse the plate on the firewall and the one that goes into the evaporator

Turns out my condenser has a giant hole in it which I haven't replaced yet cause I'm lazy and poor but that should be all that's left





Line from condenser just ran through a or existing hole that was already in the core support from a "cold air" snorkel that was on the 3.5
