Default Time to freeze 240?

On my 90 240 my compressor is weak and my evap. has a hole. Im probably gonna install Classic Air. Dave Barton has a great write up on it. But I have a question? Does the whole dash have to come out? Im going to attempt to install Classic Airs big unit. Will keep you all posted. Thanks for any help.

Finding a 91-93 240 is far and few. Then by the time I buy new heater c. And evap. And fan. I’d be getting close to a classic or vintage air.

400-550? MAybe cheaper depending on which size you choose. Im gonna go as big as possible. Classic Air is little more expensive but might be better. has everything you need to replace the components under the dash. Will take some custom work but can be done. Heres a good write up on it. Even when my ac worked with upgraded condensor and good comp. IT would struggle if temps were above 90. Keep in mind my evaporator needs replaced . I dont want to do all that work without upgrading it. Heres an exellent write up on it.

If you can figure out which one flows more air or has more power or bigger motor, start with that. So that could mean a larger unit than I did. I think Vintage has units with 2.25 or 2.5 inch duct exits. Mine are only 2 inch. I'm not unhappy with my flow, but I'd be happier with more.
