I did not mention that the garage is an addition. It is completely sealed off with an exterior door and storm door and exterior stucco wall.
The garage is unfinished and very drafty. There will be virtually no pulling air pushing air from the garage to the house.
Could you provide a sketch of what you're going to do with the setup? I'm confused as to how (not what) you're going to use the portable AC.

The pushing or pulling air comment refers to unwanted air leakage like you get from running any normal dryer, a single duct portable A/C or a bathroom fan from inside your house.
Running closed loop mean the intended movement of air.
There will be lots of intentional movement of air between the garage and house through the A/C unit, but little to no undesirable or unwanted air leakage or air infiltration.

that's what I was hoping you could elaborate on. There's something I think i'm missing in your plan that might be clear to me if you drew it out or explained it in detail.
