    I'm thinking this must be a dead group buy/thread as there has been no advancement or updates in quite some time. Too bad as I would like a/c in my 7M swapped MK2.

    My apologies. Personal and family matters have taken priority since last year.

    Stay subscribed to the thread for updates later this year.

    I'd be interested in a R290 retrofit kit. Lower working pressure = easier stress on the engine. Non-toxic to the environment. Probably cheaper and easily available supply of R290. Has anyone ever considered this?

    The kit was designed only for R134a.

    I'm curious. If I do a 7m swap into my 84. Even though I have a working ac system now, what would the cost be to have the system evacuated and refilled with custom lines to the 7m compressor? Will I need to get this retrofit kit? Will r12 work with the 7m compressor?

    If you have a working R12 AC system, and your 7M swap includes a working 7M AC compressor, all you'd need to find is a shop
    that can fab the compressor lines and charge with R12.

    The retrofit kit is primarily for those with non-working/broken AC systems, limited to no access to R12, and most importantly,
    trying to revive an unknown AC system can become a large money pit.
