I'm also in the PNW and will be installing two 47Ah conversions when they're available. Maybe we could make a party out of it in Washington state.
Really appreciate all you're doing on this! While I'd love to have it done, life always comes first. My friend and I just submitted our purchase forms the other day and are sitting on a big pile of FoMoCo batteries to do the conversion.I still haven't received the last custom part required to ship these FoMoCo kits.
At this point even if I received them tomorrow, there isn't enough time to shoot and edit the installation videos prior to Thanksgiving... which I'm spending in Wisconsin with my wife's family.
So obviously these kits won't ship until early December. If you've been following along for a while now, this slipping schedule won't surprise you . It'll be ready when it's ready. I'm excited to share it.
Additionally, after watching your video on pack heating I was surprised you didn't consider an aluminum-clad PCB heater on the bottom of the FoMoCo packs. I have no idea what the G3 Insight modules look like, so those may be more challenging. From my experience, thermal management through the bottom of a lithium cell is very efficient as the can and jellyroll wicks the heat effectively. This would require a bespoke design for the FoMoCo packs, but wouldn't require the fans to be on and wasting BTU's recirculating air into the cabin. From what I've seen of your build, the vertical clearance of adding even a single PCB could be a factor though.
