People mod to the extreme suspension, engines, sound systems. How has A/C been left unmolested? Seeing some of the dumb stuff people do to cars (stereo so loud you can't be in the car when it's turned up, bouncing suspension so radical the car is barely drivable and the hopping must be operated from outside) I'm amazed I haven't seen absurd A/C setups that blast ultra-sub zero air. How is this not a thing in places like phoenix? Has it just slipped under my radar? For that matter, is there a modded heater scene in Milwaukee? I'm imagining a combo with seats you can grill an egg on while injecting a mist of water behind the vents so they blow snow. Please show me that some aspect of this exists.

In the right conditions, it would snow in the plane I used to work on in the navy. Was always a hoot.

Awesome! You can see how this would be a cool novelty to desert dwellers.

I really do! Snow or fog mode would be harmless fun.

I have noticed that my compressor does make a little louder "pshhhh" noise every min or two than the last car did.

Performance is great though.

I think mine might be a little low on charge. Noticed warmer discharge temps from vents in stop and go traffic. I’ll have the dealer check next time I go.

Are the electric fans operating as they are supposed to? Typically when it gets warmer at a stop or low speed it is because not enough air is being moved through the condenser..

Mine feels weak, not strong enough for florida heat. Hopefully adding some refrigerant and a tint will remedy this.

Very true!

I've never done this test with a BRZ, but one hot summer road trip I logged intake temps on a very hot 600 mile trip (highway, horrible traffic, dry, rain, pretty much all conditions) in a 2012 STi. There was a significant difference in intake temps (IAT) from highway to traffic, as you'd expect, but also a significant difference when running fresh vs recirc. Recirc IATs were 50 degrees lower! The math would make sense, as you're recirculating the car's already cooled air probably 10 or so degrees, vs cooling 100+ degree coming off the pavement. The less heat you're removing, the less you are expelling from the heat exchanger and into the engine bay. It all makes sense.

And my A/C works very well too!

What? The average high in LA this time of year is barely above the average low for us this time of year.
