Every time I read about these "conversions" I ask myself why.
Essentially the same size condenser, the same size evap core, the same condenser that cooled the 2 seat cockpit of a Corvette cooled a 6 seat Chevy Impala, & most of a 9 seat Chevy Station Wagon but it's not good enough today. The biggest problem I have noticed is the original evap cores have a majority of FINS clogged with insects, leaf debris, detritus & all manner of organic matter - so no cold air can pass thru.

Had nothing to do with the way it worked
It worked good. Problem was it took up too much space under the hood and my big block needs the space
