can the stock a/c compressor work with synthetic freon, since it advertised 20* cooler than regular
(summer days down here 100+) or is it better to just cover the t-tops

Did you convert your system to R-134a or is it the original R-12? I ask because I don't think they make a syn. R-12 unless you are referring to Freeze 12. which is a blended Refrig. :vomitbuddy:

H/R is right, there s no r-12 synthetic that I ve seen either.. unless your system has been converted to r-134, you can t use the synthetics.. I use them in mine, and it is colder,much faster.. but it must be converted first

Did you really notice a difference? I'm thinking about doing my truck (Evac and recharge) The best the system will do, aside from quoting ambient air and R.H., is about 50°F DAT, where it should be around 44-46°F

yes, it gets cold much faster .it use to take several minutes to get cold, after switching to the synthetic, its cold almost immediately. I checked it couple years ago,and was getting 42* at the center vent on max.. its as good as my C5 is
