The other evaporator I have is all aluminum, except for the input and output tubings. Between the two, there is a significant weight difference by feel.

I don't recall what version I installed in my car.

One end of the Evaporators.

The 2 evaporators in the pic are both Siemens? P/n of the unit on the right is legible but I can't make out the p/n of the unit on the left, can you? They both have the same p/n?

I believe an all aluminum evaporator of the same size and shape is more efficient than a copper/ aluminum one.
