  1. I will let you know. Thanks for your help,. Kelly, Have they inspect the reservoir? Most of the time your reservoir is dirty and it will no allow fluids circulate through the system. JP Importz
  2. Hi there, I've successful convert many R-12 system to R-134 with no problem. Many folks giving it a bad rep because they wouldn't take the time to do it right or lack of knowledge how the a/c works. This vehicle actually designed for R12 so it will work much better with R-12 but where can we find R-12? The gray market? We have seen 104 degree here in the Dallas, TX area the past week. I've convert a couple of them last week, air blows 28 degree out of the vents in 104 degree temp. Here are some tips: - Flush the system Flush the system, actually..?? Or do you really mean pum

  4. Yes, we vacuumed it for approx 30 min befor charging. We added about 3 ounces of PAG oil. Have you had a chance to put on the new compressor? Keep us updated. JPI
  5. Are you familiar with the Direct Port Injection system? What kind of fuel controller are going to use? This is a very high compression engine. JPI
  6. Have you inspect your shims on the clutch? I would transfer all the old shims to the newer compressor. When you said you properly charge the system, How much did you charge? What was the low and high pressure? What is the temp ? I would need these information. JPI
  7. There are only 2 brake sensors. They are located on the passenger side. JPI
  8. Hi Ted, I would check all the connections one more time. Make sure you don't pinch the wires when putting the cover back on. It wouldn't hurt to inspect coils. JPI
  9. Have you chech the VSV? JPI
  10. Toyota supra has the 2jz-gte and the GS300 has the 2jz-GE with VTT-i. The VTT-I engine is an interference engine, If you miss 3 teeth and the valves will bend. Non of the toyota engine has the 2jz-GE VTT-I except the lexus family. Well let me take it back the newer Toyota supra has the VVT-i, but that is in Japan. I've seen and heard many toyota techs bend the valves when changing out the belts. If you do go to the independent, make sure they are a lexus specialty shop. Otherwise Lexus dealership will be your best bet. What does it involve in the $700 repair? Do they just change o
  11. We are a little far..... But kind of power are you looking? Here are a couple s/c we did in the past and present. http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1183908821 http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1183908907 http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1183908937 http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1166761505 http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1166761559 JPI
  12. We worked on many many LS. Never had one snap on us. Most of our client change them out at 90k. JP Importz

    Hey Guys!

    Hey Josh, I haven't heard from you ages. Let me know when you are back in Tejas. Regards, JPI
  14. Both steering column side by side. The 92 and 94 column does look a little bit different but they do share the same measurement and tilt motors. http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1180723567 Both ignition plugs are the same. http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1180723734 The retracting module wiring is a little bit different. All we had to do is swap them out. http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1180723797 Swapping out the ignition lock. They are quite simple to do. http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1180723906 I
  15. One of our good client have problem with his steering column. It makes a grinding noise when turning left and right. We had this issue in the past and a little shim was in place to fix it temporary. After modified the shim and tested the clearance on the column. The inner shaft was way out of clearance, A new steering need to be in place to fix this problem. We called lexus and they wanted $1500 just for the column ouch. BTW, This vehicle is a 94 Ls400. After a couple of sleepless night, we decided to look into swapping the donor steering column. It's a Ls400 92 with 93k miles,
