Just completed the install of all new A/C components and converted to 134a. Two addl fan assisted condensers added to stock config along with a RennAire ProCooler (refrigerated drier). The ProCooler/subcooler is located in the suction line between the evap and the compressor which will ultimately increase the return temps to the compressor. Is there any concern over the compressor running too hot? Is there an acceptable operating temp range for the compressor? The ProCooler located in the front fender is ice cold to the touch and sweating. Suction line at the compressor was not cold during charging but I suspect it is cold running at higher RPMs (I will check) Update: Its barely cool to the touch.
Charged system using the P&T charts with small cans this past weekend. I estimate that my final was 38 oz vs 47.2 oz R-12 OEM capacity prior to system mods. Getting vent temps in the low 30's - quite pleased.

This site says that compressors may run at 250 degrees.

I always wonder if those things buy any performance. When you increase the temperature of the gas entering the compressor, the gas is less dense so you get less mass flow for a given compressor displacement. Also the only cooling the compressor gets is from the cool gas entering it.
