134 and parralel flow condensors

It's that time of year again. How many of you guys in the southland have installed parralel flow condensors? How well do they work? My system was converted to 134 with a new compresser and dryer etc. but the condensor was not changed, I am wondering if a new parralel flow would be able to keep up with the 90/90 days here in the Carolinas. Thanks.

Dave did this: parallel flow condensor installed in a W123

I used a 15.5' X 24.75" parallel flow condensor in my 300SD and I'm happy. Hose crimping/redo is the biggest hurdle.

My Parallel Flow "Condensa Advencha"

Still working well 11 months later. On 95 degree days my vent temps will climb at idle from 40F to about 51F, only to drop again once rolling. I never had working AC with a tube-and-fin condenser, so I don't know if it's better or worse, but I'm happy and would do it again.
