Welcome back to episode 23 of Munro’s Tesla Model Y Performance teardown, where Munro & Associates CEO Sandy Munro gives an overview of the octovalve assembly and HVAC case.

In this episode, Sandy first takes an in depth look at the unique manufacturing methods used in the Octovalve (cooling system) assembly.

Next, Sandy reviews the internals of the HVAC case. In this review, he shares how Tesla used a unique application of additive manufacturing using FDM 3D printing (fusing of heated plastic).

You can see the full details on the Octovalve assembly and HVAC case here.

Sandy also announces a giveaway. One lucky winner will receive the new style sun visor.
