    Any in a hot humid climate like Dallas TX tried this VOV --variable orrifice valve--in the A.C. compressor
    I heard this will improve the performance ie make the ac work better in traffic and stop and go situations

    Nope...they have ben out for a couple of years i believe. They and restrict as load on the system is increased...have seen their adds where i get parts...supposed to work really well. Since i have R-12 in both my K5's and both systems operate great i have not bothered to try one. I'll pick one up this week and throw it in at the shop after work and give it a try.
