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.
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.
o 1JZ / 2JZ
I have entire ac system works amazing I'll consider selling I just hve to look at the receipts to see what kind it is since previous owner put brand new one . Pm if interestedYep. I'll probably try and bring mine back from the dead.
I have a new receiver/drier, some NOS R-12, and my son's friend the Toyota Tech has said he'd be happy to come over, pump it down, and check it for leaks. If it's tight we'll fill it with the R-12 I've collected, and hope for the best.
