    Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do about my AC. The temperature warms up from 72 to 78-80 at stop lights and stop and go traffic. While I am going the temp of the air hitting the driver is 72 and inside the vent is 58. It doesn't sound light at big difference (72-78) but it is the difference between sweating and not while coming home from work.

    I had thought about changing crank pulley size to a larger one, but I didn't know if it would mess things up and I didn't know where to get one nor did I know what size to actually get.

    I also thought putting an electrical fan blowing into the core (by the grille).

    Are there any other suggestions? yes do one of these or no, don't do those?

    I put a small electric fan in front of my radiator and it comes on when I am at a stop light and it seemed to help alot, also you may want to switch to dual electric fans since they pull more air than the stock fan.
