Age old Heater motor question

Hey,

The Heater blower motor has bit the dust in the 110. Does anybody have any bigger motor ideas or fixes to make it shove more air at you? other wise I'll just order stock....

Thanks in advance!

Remove the dash and cut the hole bigger. Remove the heater core and repack with new foam so that only hot air enter the cab.

High efficiency core will help. Using a snow-cover will help keep the new motor running longer if you're in an area where you're pulling ice/water through it all the time. A secondary core mounted under the passenger seat will do wonders, they're cheap and available through places like Summit.

To improve flow you can always add booster fans to the ducts but the stock layout isn't great, it's one of the reasons I'm designing a dash from the bulkhead out, the stock system is far too restrictive and adding more blower just makes it work harder, the high-efficiency core is better with the stock heater because you end up with hotter air rather than just trying to force more of it through.

Heater question

Hey thanks guys,

Pretty familiar with all the rover tricks to get more heat... I was just curious if there was a "Known" larger heater motor to put in.
