The Kuehl Wirbelsturm Hurricane Motor is a permanent magnet motor which typically lasts 3-4 times longer than the competitors inexpensive series wound motor. The Kuehl motor installs inside the Behr evaporator box and uses the existing OEM blower cage. The design of the Kuehl motor makes installation rather easy: very simple modification, accepts the original steel blower cage and plugs into the existing fan motor power connector.
Fits cars with factory air conditioning having Behr brand evaporator boxes with the earlier style flat top cover with a small dimple that looks like this:
The Kuehl Wirbelsturm Hurricane motor fits vehicles with factory air having a Behr brand evaporator box top as shown here on the left. The top of the box has a small ‘dimple’. These earlier flat top evaporator covers can also be identified by the orientation of the original motor inside as its shaft points upward and uses a steel blower cage; as opposed to later model evaporator covers having a 2″ high bulge and the motor shaft points downward and uses a plastic blower cage as shown below.
If you have a 911 or 930, 1986 to 1989 model year, and your evaporator box top looks like the picture on the left you can “back date” your evaporator top to use our motor. To do this you need to locate a good used evaporator box top, with the old motor, metal blower wheel and the plastic platform the motor and blower wheel are mounted on…. from a 1970-1985 year car. Best sources for locating these parts are dedicated Porsche salvage yards, Rennlist or Pelican forum classifieds.
