As far as its evaporator duties go - this is a good part. Haven't noticed a difference in cooling between this and an OE evaporator. Installation is a little interesting, however it isn't has hard as some may lead you to believe. There is no reason to remove the evaporator multiple times to get correct fitment, it can all be done in car. Once the HVAC box is reinstalled with the new evaporator, the outlets can be bent at the firewall to fit your existing A/C pipes in the engine bay. Just loosen the pipes in the engine bay, slide them into the evaporator, and bend the outlets down to the proper position with the palm of your hand. The evaporator outlets are just aluminum, so it's not too difficult to get them to bend where you need them.
About A/C Evaporator Cores
The A/C evaporator core is like a heater core for your air conditioning system, in that is it often mounted inside your car (or near the firewall) and is connected to your car's HVAC fan to cool the car's interior. Just like a heater core, the main reason an evaporator core needs to be replaced is because it is leaking. Be sure to choose the correct year, make, model, engine and transmission type as condensers can vary greatly due to the equipment installed and feel free to call us with any questions.

I just replaced evaporator on my 97 Volvo 850 just a few weeks ago. This product is fine except that the smaller port didn't line up perfectly with the AC hose. If you had done AC work before, you probably know those hoses are so rigid that it's impossible to bent if you don't have the right tool in order to fit them in the ports on the evaporator. Of course, I didn't know that. I tried everything but was not be able to connect it to the AC line. The next day I realized that I have to take out the evaporator out from the climate control unit again and used my bare hands to bend the ports so they looked exactly like the old one. I wasted quite a few hours and was so frustrated, but at the end I was lucky that I succeeded on the first try after. Could be a lot worse if I had to redo several times. Hope sharing my experience could save you some time and make the right decision. Now my AC is colder than ever.
The outlet pipe did not line up like the original dealer part. Would spend the extra next time to ensure alignment since bending the pipes is not something a DIY person has tools to do.
For a 3rd of the price of OEM you get a HIGH quality evap that is made in the USA... My A/C is colder than ever!
