High Performance Condesner

Make: Mercury
Model: Cougar
Engine Size: 289
Refrigerant Type: R134A
Country of Origin: United States

Hello everyone,

This is my first post.

Anyway, two different versions of hi-performance condensers for my car.

A: The first version utilizes a flat tube serpentine design like stock. The difference being in the tube which has 6 internal circuits rather than stock 3. Claims 30% more contact.

B: The second version is a parallel flow design rather than the stock serp. Claim higher heat rejection, low refrigerant and air pressure drop compared to the original.

I know its hard to compare but what in your opinion is a better condenser?

A parallel flow condenser is much more efficient than a serpentine.

Since you are posting competitive supplier links; I would ask that you check with the forums host (click on AMA logo above) and allow them the opportunity to have (earn) your business.

They are located in Phoenix, AZ; and have a lot of experience with restoration and upgrades to the A/C systems of the older and classic cars.

Will do. Might even save on shipping as they are local!

AZCAT those links you had posted were some pricey condensers for what you were getting in my opinion. Come on over and speak with Rob and Jack and they can show you what we have and with a little time we can custom fab some brackets for you.
