Unsolicited Testimony: (Ian Buxton, Reno- from the Jag-Lovers Forum):
"While one of us is preparing an authorative missive on the Dealer installed cooling options for the JCNA, others have addressed the the matter with modern materials and genuinely good results (e.g: www.mrjaguar.com)"
(Owner of a 1963 3.8S with RetroAir/Mr Jaguar A/C System).
This is our Original system that took over 3 years to develop so it would look and perform like it belonged in a Jaguar! It includes some of the most efficient, custom made parts available to cool a car. During development we looked at every aspect of cooling this model car including using the Heater Box and Ducts, as a European Competitor is doing. All A/C systems produce volumes of Condensation which will ruin the Metal Heater Box and Ducting. Since the Metal Ducting is an integral part of the Body construction strength on the Mark II and Variants, theresulting Rust and Rot can be dangerous and expensive to repair.Likewise, we rejected the Trunk mount and "Hang Down" units for inadequate performance, and aesthetic reasons. The results of our work is "Blowin in Your Face" A/C that looks perfectly at home in a Classic Jaguar.
We use only the best for these Kits: A 30 tube, Aluminum Evaporator design that produces 16,000 BTU's and will cool any large sedan. Our Condenser is a "4 pass" Multi-Flow with 13 passages in each tube and produces well over 20,000 BTU's. Other units can not come close to this! We use a new Sanden/Behr Rotary Compressor which is the most popular and reliable aftermarket Compressor available, and easily cool the Mark II and it's Varients. Our Custom Made Barrier A/C Hose Assemblies have 2 reinforcing plies and properly clocked Fittings.
The results of all this care are Mid-Thirty to 40 Degree vent temperatures as reported to us by users and shops alike!
