I don't think it's that wild. 4,000 BTU is about the output one would want for a window AC unit in a small bedroom. While the bedroom doesn't have an engine and transmission beneath it, and it's not moving through hot air, it is probably 10x the air volume over a 911.

These cars are insulated poorly from the factory, and I think there is room to improve cooling potential in that department...Historically, however, the hard part has been getting any reasonably cool air into the cabin to insulate in the first place.

Given a few thousand dollars, I suspect we'll have a choice between having an excellent Griffith system plumbed through the car and having a barely-adequate system in a compact machine up front. I can see the value in both, and I'd love to have the choice.

The stock solution, in perfect condition, is barely adequate and plumbed throughout the car...
