Is it tough to add either of these? I'm getting ready to buy an SR5 that had every option but these, and I'd really like these two as they could make or break the deal for me.

Thanks,
Shawn

I would say the cruise is easier to install. You need the relays and a connection to the computer for the correct speed and stuff. Then, or course you need the 12V electrical connection and the cable to connect it directly to the throttle.

A/C ? You need the compressor and the fan belt and hoses. I don't have any idea how that all runs.

You'd be best off installing an aftermarket cruise control.

You can pick up an A/C kit at www.ackits.com

V6 or 22Rxx? THAT is what'll make or break you on the add-ons. 22Rxx are much easier mills to work around.

V6. Planning on a diesel swap next year, so I guess you could say it's GONNA be a 4 cylinder. Just wasn't sure if there was an easy way to get AC working. Figured next year all I'd have to do is end up finding a different compressor to run A/C.

Thanks so far guys,
Shawn

I think 4Crawler might have a diesel conversion article for your perusal on his site.

Also, the Mitsu guys will be very helpful if you decide to fool with biofuel later on.

Good luck on the project! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

I put the A/C system from a V6 onto my 4Cyl. I ended up buying a 4cyl compressor and bracket and mounting the top part of the V6 compressor(with the fittings)onto it so the bends of the hoses would go in the right directions.

It's not that hard if you have good access to the donor vehicle. In addition to the parts under the hood, you'll also need the AC amplifer located behind the glovebox, the AC button, and the wiring harness that runs between the button and amplifier. You may also need a valve from the vacuum system to increase the idle when the AC is on (I'm not sure how it works on the V6). Replace all the o-rings with the new green HNBR ones and always replace the dryer whenever the system has been opened.

The only special tool needed was the pump to draw all the air out of the system before adding the refridgerant. If you know someone who does HVAC work, they'll probably have one.

Good Luck! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

And if you don't get the AC condensor and ductwork for it, everything else will have been in vain.

I dont want to sound rude here, but from the questions asked I'm assuming your going to pay someone to do the diesel swap. Why not wait until you do the swap to add the accesories? No sense in installing them now and having to possibly modify or replace parts later on.

Until then, just use the 4-40 A/C. 4 windows down at 40mph! Or 2-40 like my pickup has! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Nope, doing it myself. I'm more than mechanically inclined as I've worked on numerous cars including our Dodge CTD, and my old Turbo Talon that I personally bored and stroked myself which made well over 500hp at the wheels. I've just never dealt with A/c and honestly have no idea what components are actually in the system. That, and I wasn't sure what came on the truck anyways. Wasn't sure if Toyota ran the same duct work for both ac and non ac version, or not.

I already have a spare condenser and compressor from my old V6 Toy I had. I was actually a member of these forums with a different name and a few thousand posts long ago. I've just changed internet providers so many times that I don't have the old email address to find the password to login <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
