B-Grade Heaters

Post by Mudgey » Tue Aug 13, 2013 11:43 am

Hello,

I have a couple heaters used on my display stand that have now got a few scratches to the enclosure and radiator, they are in full working condition and are priced at £75 inc VAT, normal price is £110 so thats a bit of a bargain tbh!

Any other time and I would have snapped up one of these. It has been on my wish list for a while.

Both sold yesterday. I think people are starting to get their cars ready for the cold season now, started getting busier and have less time to post controversial mods on LG :lol:

Are these for cars with the heater matrix removed?

They are ultra lightweight heaters that weigh in at 1.15kg for the enclosure, heater matrix and fan. I have not weighed a prelude heater assembly but a civic type r unit weighed 8kg for the respective parts. Let alone all the plastic moulded ducting, servo motors etc. These are strictly for race/track cars or weight savers that want a lightweight system to keep the windscreen defrosted and a bit of heat for the driver. They have been used on all sorts of vehicles including kit cars, rally cars, classic cars & some big name manufacturers land speed cars etc.

Yup, but you wouldn't be able to draw more than 0.5 - 0.75kw otherwise you'll drain your battery and are placing a higher load on the engine, they are more expensive and on top of that the hot water is going to waste anyway!
