Does this kit improve upon the stock set-up (blows colder air), or is it intended to bring the old system back to like-new condition?

Just to be clear, it's a complete replacement from firewall to compressor. From your description, it sounds like you have a time capsule MK2. :D

Vent temps are roughly the same as an R12 car.

I have two MK2's, one with R12 and the other with this kit. Both average about 40F vent temperature with 85F outside temp and average humidity.

A few have reported the R134a kit vent temps as low as 36F.

I am interested in one but I already have the compressor and if I am reading the posts correctly a 5m kit does not have the option to exclude the compressor. is that correct? If I can use my existing compressor will the OEM compressor hose connections still work? Also will the fan connect to the old bracket?

The 5/6/7M kits include a new Seltec compressor. It's not setup to use the factory compressor.

The new condenser/fan assembly is a complete swap for the factory condenser/fan.

What are the differences between the 5M and 7M kits? I would imagine that I have a mixed bag of 5M and 7M oem a/c parts on my car now (but not fabricated and hooked up to run) as it is an original 5M equipped car that now has a 7M swapped in.

The only difference between the 5/6M and 7M kits is the Seltec compressor pulley. 5/6M has a single v-groove. 7M has a ribbed pulley.

So are these 7M kits specifically designed for MK2 owners who originally had 5M's but now have 7M's swapped in? I understand that these will directly bolt on to the motor, but will it bolt on to the original MK2 lines going in through the firewall? Lastly, would it be wise to purchase a new evaporator? Any suggestions on brands for this (I assume this is no longer available via Toyota). Thanks in advance for clarifying this for me.

The kit includes everything starting from the firewall to the compressor. All you retain is the EPR valve (mounted on passenger strut tower), and the front temp sensor.

I do not have experience with the aftermarket evaporators. The definition of OE quality is much different than it used to be.
If I bought an aftermarket, I would have it pressure tested by an AC shop to avoid the re-install cost.

I may be interested in a 7MGTE a/c kit. Any finalized info or updates on when a group buy may get started? Once started, what is the turn around time for getting them shipped out?

I have not received a reply about setting up the GB since later July.

Though I just discovered a place holder post in the Group Buy section for the AC kit.

Starting this AC GB in September will get tricky. It's a 3 month project including collection of payments.

There's a potential large personal speed hump that will likely occur in November which will impact this project. This could postpone shipments well into December.

At this juncture, it's probably best for everyone (myself included) that the GB start in either December or January. I know this is not
what people want to hear, though I don't want to start a project, put it on hold for an indeterminate amount of time, then complete it.
