Yes, when I was young I thought AC was for wimps, but, now I'm old....
The newer compressors are definitely more efficient, however, they are also "variable" which means that they vary the amount of compression continuously instead of cycling on and off. I would have to take a look at how to control that function - I suspect that the newer cars like 9-3 SS use a temperature sensor at the evaporator and serial data/computer control of the compressor. Also, they are designed for r134a refrigerant (which is probably not a problem, even with the original system). Anyway, all that said, I could probably figure out how to fit a v-belt pulley onto it :-)
