noise buster

ACKITS sells a v5 reseal kit they call a "noise buster" What does that mean?
- I don't find the regular v5 very noisy.
They also have a more expensive kit that's not noise busting - why would you choose that?

Noise buster was a Delphi Thermal campaign in late 90,s that used tighter tolerance parts to help sell their V-5 to car companies- so, evidently the name/term has carried on into the aftermarket- no big deal- you are right- the V-5 is not a noisy unit to start with- but you would be amazed what people hear when it is under the car's 3 year warranty period. After the warranty expires, the same owner's claim that it is just cooling great, and now not noisy when you recommend a compressor change A noise buster is completely compatible with a non-noise buster unit- never have I seen a parts interchangeability issue....

The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
