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:

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. I’m guessing sometime in August. So you’ll 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 support. The factory mount points are very specific, which might require the end user to have some welding done.
I might require a test subject to prefit a set of lines so I can get the correct lines made.

I do not have pricing yet on premium rebuilt 2JZ compressors. Note, these will have a warranty. I’m guessing at least $250.

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

Your vote is public. Only vote if you are going to proceed with the buy.

In for a 7m kit. I am super excited thanks jim!

question:

What items need to be re-used? I currently have everything removed in the engine bay. mounts, brackets, switches, EPR all that stuff... the only thing left from my stock system is the evaporator (which will be replaced) and the engine bay harness.

It would be nice to know the items I need to track down to complete the install. what about things like mounting brackets, the EPR, line clips/spacers, OEM sensors etc.?

Consolidated answers to posted questions
What items need to be re-used? [snip...]
Existing items required:
  • Temperature sensor at AC condenser (black thing)
  • EPR valve (which the kit contains replacement O-rings if one wants to rebuilt it)
  • Thermostatic valve connection that goes to the EPR
  • Factory AC compressor engine mounting bracket
  • Power feed to AC compressor (one wire setup)
  • Lower condenser mounting bolt/bushing setup
  • Power feed to old AC condenser fan (not sure why one remove it...)
  • AC relay (back by the washer bottle)
Evaporator
If your evaporator connections has been open for any period of time, either replace the evaporator or have it cleaned and pressure tested.
Leaky evaporators can be a real pita to diagnose leaking systems.

2J Compressor
I've allotted $250 for a premium rebuilt 2J compressor. If the price is more, the 1/2J kit price will reflect this.
2J kits also allow a no-compressor option. Tentative price reduction would be $250.

Jim,

The AC kits were originally offered with or without compressors. Is there any consideration for the same type of offers this time around? I only ask because I already picked up a new JZ compressor...

Regards,

Carlos

Hey Carlos, sure, only the 1/2JZ kits may elect to exclude the compressor. Estimated price reduction is $250US.

Thanks, Jim!

The evaporator has been discussed as a potential new OEM component to purchase. Anything else that should be considered to restore the system toas new condition to prevent headaches? expansion valve?

New OEM might be more challenging since the last GB. If you have to get aftermarket, I'd suggest investigating Four Seasons products.

If you are taking apart your dash for the evap core replacement, re-seal all the plastic ducting with flexible adhesive and add new foam seals. My re-seal is in progress with industrial grade foam seals. It will outlast the car.

The response looks good.

I'm waiting on compressor quotes for the 1J/2J and some production time frames.

I'm estimating I'll get an official GB posting sometime the first week in July.

J motor compressors
Courtesy of [email protected], he suggested Denso aftermarket replacement compressors for the J motors.
A quick search reveals a brand new MKIV compressor in the low $300's.

This is a really good price plus a direct warranty to you. I cannot see any customer value in my offering a compressor for the J kits.

Additionally, there might be a way to use standard AC hose connections on the compressor. There's some Denso compressor adapters,
that if they work, the end user won't have to fabricate anything. The parts themselves are $50.

So this would put the J kits around $750 + shipping.

Request
Lastly, if anyone has a J motor installed, and the compressor is still installed, I could use some pics and measurements.
PM me if you do.

I got my remaned 2j compressor for my gs300 for $155 shipped with 1 year warranty. so far its working great. still have the 2j compressor that was on it origionally, it needs a shaft seal, but the shaft seal i found on rock auto is not correct, even though its the part number listed for gs300's, sc300's, mk4's, etc... if i can find a proper shaft seal for a good price, id fix this compressor. it was a very slow leak, and it worked great otherwise. it is sealed shut with the top plate from the remaned unit so it should stay good tll i can get the correct seal.

Jim, my 2jz swapped car has a so-so working A/c system, i managed to make the hoses using the JZ OEM compressor end fittings and the OEM MKII condenser ends, only had an issue before and had to send the hoses out to get crimped again, but still have a slow leak but last the whole season, but thats another story, tell me what measurements you need.
