    Slowly on a Sunday as I reaaaaaly couldn't be bothered until this point changed the fluids in the beast today, she had a very hard 5k between services this time!

    Fluids left to right,

    Diff. Catch can. Hydro fan. Gearbox. Fuel.

    Both auto and diff slightly metallic.... hopefully no major damage, might get a few fluid changes in quick succession to try and help get any contaminants out!

    Fuel I got out of the fuel filters was way nicer than expected (put a fuel system cleaner in on the drive back to canberra) and I expected it to loosen a heap of crap... mustn't have been all that bad?

    After the last day of work before Xmas brake, I decided to pull the pan off the gearbox for a bit on an inspection after seeing the horrible colour of the fluid removed after DC...

    Apon opening her up I found some nasty little hedge hogs instead of clean magnets left when rebuilt about 10,000km ago!

    During DC and all previous driving events the temp displayed on my trans gauge would rairly get above 90*c! Even with the 4800rpm stall!
    But that was reading trans temp at the front of the pan (temp gauge and thermo fan switch @80*c) so fan wouldn't turn on very often! After seeing the colour of the used fluid it was clear the temp was a HELL OF A LOT HIGHER

    So I made this little manifold to move the senders from the pan into the cooler line before the trans cooler. First drive around the block was interesting... average temp was 90*c and as such the fan was an EARLY and basically the whole time!

    Temp gauge should always be on the hose exiting the box after going through the converter

    Good news however

    What thermostatic switch are you using for the trans? Im using one originally for a radiator but I think its dead after not much use. Car is awesome by the way, do you plan to stay with the a340?

    Makes sense in hind sight to be the hottest part of the box but I didn't really think about it the first time around :/

    Switch was from a radiator same as yours, I just went through the tridon thermo switch and sender catalog at the local parts shop to pick one off the shelf close to what I thought would be a good temp to try and keep the box from going abouve

    Not planing on moving away from the A340 at this point, has overdrive and converter lock up so it's great for the street! Would be sweet if I could trans brake it! But it's not a drag car and trans brake is no good for the street for me anyway :/ maybe one day... if I get more serious on the drags go a tried and tested rout while trying to keep it street friendly!

    M&A? (not the local one) were looking at a transbrake for the A340 - but haven't seen anything since shane was testing - and then he went th i think...

    I'm thinking about a TH - I'll miss the 4th gear, but I hardly ever use the lockup on the street.

    Also I have had the box built and mike at MV would be good for 400+ rwkw with traction, that is something I rairly have...400kw at the wheels in this thing would be hella exciting tho!

    I'll see, if I blow it up at some point I'll think about my options! But I would say with my track record the w fine would go first ;p haha

    Keep the A340E, it will be cheaper to blow it to smithereens and completely build another than to get a good TH box installed and running.

    I think built TH700s and A340s are about the same. Both get to a point where they just wanna explode no matter how much magic you throw at them.

    Change your rear gear up to 3.5 (you've got the power for it) and ditch the overdrive box

    hmmm - not sure that will be all that happy.


    we should start another thread for jz auto options and stop side-tracking this one.

    Finally got around to getting the headliner re-trimmed, it's a little bit lighter than what it was before but the fact that it's not falling down on my head every time I drive the car is a bonus!!

    Ordered a universal condenser from NatRad that should fit the core of my radiator with just enough room to make the high pressure and liquid lines... hopefully!

    And today I managed to score an original factory Toyota aircon unit!! (I needed the under dash part) It's in need of some loving but I'm super excited about scoring it! Now I just have to make it all work!

    #1 problem is that I ran my ecu wiring through the hole in the firewall the factory A/C lines went through. so they need to find a new home and I'm thinking it might be time for a millspec plug? Makes taking the engine out a bit easier in the future.

    #2 problem is I don't have any room for a condenser at the front without removing my intercooler and oil cooler, I was thinking of going to a liquid to air intercooler with a thin heat exchanger at the front (condenser and heat exchanger should be thinner than the current intercooler, then just need to re-home the oil cooler to fuck knows where...)

    So if ANYONE has some insight on the water 2 air intercoolers and would like to shed some light on the situation for me? Is it worth spending a small fortune on a garret W2A core and making it from scratch? Or do I stoop to eBay W2A intercoolers? Hopefully someone has played this game and can help me out

    Thanks, Glenn.

    modified adubs typically run water to air intercoolers and they are tops apart from the added weight and complexity. you need a good pump and a decent size heat exchanger tho. you would probably want to max out the area for the exchanger up front if you can.

    talk to christiaan/foamy if you want an affordable WTA core. the cheap stuff works fine (harrison is using ebay shit and his adub hasnt blown up yet with 24psi thrown at it) but you need to check the core and make sure it doesnt show up with bent fins/casting sand inside it :P

    if you are going to all the work to put AC in the car, rather than water to air, why not use a system similar to https://fiinterchillers.com/ for your intercooling. it would probably be less work than mounting a water reservoir, heat exchanger piping etc if you are starting both from scratch. just a thought.

    I'm very interested in this idea! Would like to try and find some more information on it!!
    Not sure where I would put an "ice box" as such tho :/ but defiantly has me interested!!


    As for the interior, trims by Shaun in mitchell did the roof for me! Was very happy with the price and the work (might have been mates rates tho) fairly quick turn around, longest part was waiting for the right material. (I might have been a bit picky also).

    The idea of having sand in a brand new intercooler is less than inspiring Vito! Hahaha

    thats the magnussen LS kit - uses a small coolant reservoir that gets super chilled by 'slack' air-con time then pumped through the exchanger (in the valley i think) - very cool on a car like a commodore - on a car where you really only want to ice up your coolant when you are racing it - probably not worth the extra complexity (on a one-off setup)

    Air con intercooling has been the holy grail for a long time - as far as i can tell ^^that kit is the only one thats in mainstream production..

    about 11:45 in it shows the new heat exchanger, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekuQymPB054 doesn't look to big.
    as for added complexity, if you are adding an aircond system, you are only adding another exchanger and hoses on top of what you are adding for a water to air.
    good picture of the exchanger on there facebook page

    Have done a bit of reading and looking into interchillers and the likes, all seems like a great idea... ALTHOUGH it seems like something you need to add to an already functioning water to air system with a heat exchanger to help cool it down quickly BEFORE you get on the throttle hard and the A/C comp turns off, leaving you with an already super cooled system and an extra reserve of super chilled coolant in the foam of a header tank or ice box for while your on boost.

    But having the system without a heat exchanger out the front would mean I would need a fairly large reserve of coolant to have already cooled with the interchiller before getting onto boost and heating it all up, will defiantly keep this system in mind for the future but for now I think I'll just try and get it working as simply as I can with a basic water to air "kit" that is if I can actually fit everything I want to into the already crammed engine bay I have! Haha.

    This is my terrible drawing of my proposed plans, I would like to increase the intercooler sizing from the current 2.5" to 3" after the cooler. And it would shorten the intake path up a fair wack and also reduce the amount of bends in the intercooler system.

    I'm keen to do a few tests before I change my ecu tomorrow with a pre and post intercooler map reading on the dyno to see if I am actually getting a huge pressure drop over the cooler like I think I am with extra boost causing the massive intake temps :/

    I will be removing the front mount either way to make room for the condenser just a matter of how I actually end up cooling intake temps, probably still end up with a mix of intercooler and chemical cooling of the intercooler is not enough on its own
