Hmm mm. .....17 degrees ambient. ..... Low fan speed. They all work great on days like that.

Wrong. It was 24 ambient at the time. And fan speed max.

Well, I tested my a/c in my 70s Ferrari running about the same RPM as you show here and on a day of 25 ambient.

I got 1 degC at the vent when the compressor cut off on the thermostat. That's exactly what I'd want.

Of course the REAL test is what it does on a 35 degree day, with the car running hot and the sun doing what it does to everything. That's when Hychill really comes into its own AND runs at significantly lower pressure.

I can absolutely assure you that I don't get 1 deg from the vent on a 35deg day after the car's been sitting in the sun for an hour or two!

You didn't mention what gas YOU were running, btw.

I didn't wait for thermostat to cut off. I just thought... That's cold, I'll test it, so I did, and that's what I got.

I wasn't holding rpm on, I happened to have blipped the throttle when the pic was taken. It was mostly idling though.

1 degree at the vent would be freezing deeper inside. Too cold IMO. Running risk of ice expansion cracking evaporator.

This car happens to run both radiator fans rather than just one.

I'm sure if I held a few revs on, ran it for a minute or so, it would have dropped another degree or two.

What a load of BS....and you still haven't told us what gas you were running in it.

If it's 134a, how do you feel about knowing that you give your customers a second rate result?
