    GB 2016 AC Kit Interest Poll

    Folks;

    since Jim can't post a POLL I'm posting this on his behalf...he will be running this group buy. Any and all questions (with the exception of Canadian Shipping) will go through him and here is the text he gave me:

    IMPORTANT: Pricing has not been confirmed for condensers. It all depends on how many kits are actually ordered.

    Your vote is public. Only vote if you are going to proceed with the buy.
    If you voted and fail to proceed with the GB, your screen name will be prominently listed as a no-show.


    Features:
    o Supports R134a
    o Fits either 5M or 7M motor
    o Support for 1J/2J motor
    o All new parts. It replaces all parts from the firewall evaporator connectors to compressor.
    o Most all replacement parts are easily available.
    o Engineered for durability, safety and future serviceability.

    What you get
    o Brand new compressor (5M or 7M configuration only) o For 1J/2J compressors, possibility of a premium rebuilt NipponDenso with external warranty.
    o All new hard and soft lines, o-rings and a squirt bottle of Nylog for o-ring sealing o Inline AC filter.
    o High / Low pressure automatic cut off switch.
    o Spal low profile fan
    o Custom Multi-pass parallel flow condenser

    Price
    o $950US which includes shipping in the lower 48.
    o Possibility for Canadian Shipments will go through George(Raptor Racing). Extra fees will apply.

    Spare Parts for any existing kit
    o Condenser: $115 + shipping
    o New Seltec Compressor $250 + shipping

    Production Schedule
    I can only say that this project would be completed this summer. Im guessing sometime in August. So youll get to enjoy 2-3 months of AC comfort.
    Then when it rains, you will have the fastest defogger.

    Notes
    The price went up for various reasons. Several AC parts suppliers and fabricators I used before are no longer in business.
    Plus I have to outsource a good amount of this.

    1/2JZ buyers do not get a compressor in this kit. They need to secure their own NipponDenso compressor.

    Improvements since last kit
    o Revised drier bracket.
    o All lines welded (not brazed)
    o Improved mating connector between evaporator and EPR.

    Voting options
    o 5/6M
    o 7M
    o 1JZ / 2JZ

    Thanks George.

    The primary obstacle is the condenser. If there's a high enough number, I can secure good pricing.
    Otherwise, this could increase the overall kit price $50-100. Again, depends on the number.

    And note the red text in the first post.

    George,

    I was interested when this firs came up 1 (2?) years ago. Now, with the swing in the exchange rate it'll be a lot harder to justify. I presume there's lots of time to weigh in on this poll?

    For those with JZ's, it's not entirely clear on pricing. I understand that the JZ kit won't include a compressor... or will, but it'll be a remanufactured unit - not brand new. If you're listing around US$950 for the full 5m/7m kit, is it reasonable to say that a JZ kit with whatever compressor is available (if available) will be around the same price?

    ^^ Yes, please clarify ^^ JZ kits are cheaper without a compressor, right?

    Based on the numbers ~2 years ago, the JZ kits will be roughly $700-750.

    WOW so few takers, what happened to everyone?

    I'm thinking the "problem" is a combination of:

    1) Poor Exchange Rate for Canadians
    2) Forums is not as active as it used to be and we might need to find other means to promote specialty products like this
    3) Everyone is afraid of the wrath of Jim if they vote and don't purchase

    I don't know about a deadline but I have been waiting for years for this to happen. I hate to see it fail.
