In the past I would have considered this, but if we're having a hard time getting 30 people at "group buy pricing"...the likelihood of me selling half a dozen kits at 20% over group buy pricing is slim. The ONLY way I'd consider ordering a couple to stock is if it will make or break the group buy If Jim gets his numbers it's doubtful I will order any to stock unless Jim's suppliers can get me some crazy insane pricing. I need this for my car if he doesn't have the numbers will do what I can to help out.
I am in for a full JZ kit as well. I'm not on the forums or the Internet period much anymore working full and part time, doing projects and going to school. I barely get any sleep but I WANT THIS KIT!!!!!!!
Jim, Considering the only difference between a JZ and and 7M kit is the lines and compressor, would you be willing to sell those?
Fun fact that might be worth considering - crimped high-pressure hoses (hydraulic etc.) do have a shelf life if they aren't used within a period of time...any thoughts on that?
Just thinking a lot of customers, myself included might not be with a 7M forever and it could save us some trouble if wanting to convert in the future - either making custom lines, tracking down sizes or modifying a 2j bracket to fit a 7m compressor...
On another note, would you be willing to publish specs for some of the perishable items (like O-rings, compressors, sensors?) such as part numbers or dimensions? I understand some of it is your IP or custom, but If you became unavailable for some reason, it would be nice to know what replacement parts we need to buy!
The o-rings are standard size AC tube O fittings. Any parts store should sell a multi pack set that has all the sizes needed. Also there is no 2JZ bracket to modify. The 2JZ ac compressor bolts directly to the block.
(fyi, I don't get notified on forum post updates).
Based on the vote count, this looks doable. I have to contact a 3rd party to determine costs,
primarily for the condenser.
To answer some questions...
If you bought a 7M kit, then later changed to 2J motor, you would have to buy the NipponDenso pad
to threaded adapters (on Ebay), and have 2 new hoses made up (the ones that go between the
compressor and condenser).
Most synthetic's (rubber, urethane) can be exposed to shelf life issues. Even tires have a shelf life.
Worst case, you damage a hose, most any trucking AC shop can make you a new flexible hose.
I only buy the premium hose for this kit. Though most would only expect that from me.
I list all the parts and sources. Almost everything is off the shelf. I designed it that way to avoid
being the AC replacement parts guy.
The rear glass seal found here is set to start very shortly so it's time to move onto the next project. When we sent out the hatch glass seal we also sent out a pair of window seals...for those that need visual queues here is what I'm talking about:
I'd like to see how much interest this is...
So as some of you are aware I'm no longer "stocking" Dobinsons; meaning I will not be purchasing them by the skidload as I did in the past. The interest is just not there to justify the expense, so what I will be doing as coming on here and posting up a "Group Buy" every 6 months. Group Buy is...

I've had a few people ask so figured we'd give this a try to see if we can get the numbers. All the details should be in the group buy posts but please let me know if you have any questions but please do read some of the FAQ's in the link below:
