just measured my explorer.....abiant temp of 82....which makes a HUGE difference. the higher the ambiant to a point, the better your AC works...

anyways....47.56 degrees according to my temp probe that goes in my DVOM.....

Oh...but i have an unfair advantage....my explorer is still R12

r-12 is a FAR superior refrigerant to r-134a....i could probably get my explorer down in the high 30's as well given the right ambiant temp......some of it also has to do with the amount of ductwork between the AC evap core and the vents, the less the better...

Well that was while it was in my shop and I would assume it was about 75 in there. Yeah, the 85 will darn near frost the windows, but then again I'm a Wyoming boy in the middle of kansas summer so it's just about right lol

All that kit does is put a shut-off valve in your coolant supply lines to the heater core. Not hard to do yourself and can get the parts at a local hardware store.
