A 5000 BTU window a/c, installed in a small room (16X11X8), and running in addition to the home's central a/c (thermostat set on 78), is only good for a 2-3 degree drop in temperature of that room if outside ambient is in the 90's. In other words, a 4000 BTU a/c system would not do anything in a car operating in a hot environment - probably almost no change in vent temps above ambient and definitely not enough to cool the cabin.
