Besides the horsepower drag due to a conventional compressor, what was your assessment of advantages of an electric one?

Appreciate your perspective.
From what I've read you tear out your whole old ac system. condenser/lines/pump. Advantages are uses less that 1hp to run ac and moves weight to the front off the car off the rear and weights a lot less than stock ac. The blower is a upgrade as well as it's a twin fan rather than the single fan these cars have stock. I've done lots of reading ha

Here's the site for the ac.. maybe the dollar will keep strengthening and give us a discount!
