J tubes for 2.0 Aircooled.

Post by Wingit100 »

Hello guys, advice please re j tubes. I am looking to replace disused exchangers and get a new system including j tubes. Any recommendations? I know about the possibility of cutting outers off heat exchangers and have found j tubes available from turbo thomas and the ones on vw heritage, both are extremely expensive stainless options. I simply don't have the funds having entered into a full resto on my 2.0 Aircooled Devon. With regard to cutting up the old exchangers there's no guarantee they aren't damaged. Any recommendations for j tubes and full system would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks.

a full stainless one from us is £650 a mild steel version is 475 plus postage only made to a pre paid order takes 3-4 for you get it. This was the answer, unfortunately way too rich for my blood still. Any other suggestions guys?
