Larger condenser for stock A/C?

Out of curiosity, has anybody thrown in a larger condenser and did it provide more efficiency in the system?

This is assuming you do everything like adding more refrigerant (recharging) and what else to compensate for the larger volume.

I don't think if it would make a difference without putting a larger evaporator in to go with it. There's a temperature switch at the evaporator, a small tube stuck to the evaporator with some black gooey stuff that will turn compressor off a little above 32 degrees to prevent ice from forming on evaporator. so to get a larger volume of cold air would require a larger evaporator.

The evaporator....takes a bit of time to get to. LMAO!! https://youtu.be/IJmXqeTFtuU?t=161
Also, it's a finite space.



I was just thinking of the condenser because of ease of access.

yes. you would need a larger/multiple evaporator, condenser, and larger/multiple compressor. your local luxury limo rental place will know all about this.
I have a local limo place that in their suburban limo they run 3 compressors and 15 lbs of refrigerant. I told them that's more than the city busses run! (they are around 5 lbs)
