Ac Compressor W201

I would like to convert a 16 valve to R134. Can I get a better compressor than the Nippodenso that will fit on my car without much work? How about a larger evaporator or condensor? Thanks.

I forgot to mention. The W201 comes stock in my car with the 10P15C. I know some porsches use that and also the 10P15E. What is the difference? Is the 10P15E better? Also, what about using the Kuehl Porsche compressor that replaces the 10P15C?

Unfortunately we have not completed our kit that is in the works, I and another technician who has been working on Mercedes for over 10 years have been working on the nippendenso problem. He has his 124 outfitted with the ( prototype kit) and it has been a little over a year with no problems . It is a 134 system and pressures are perfect. We would like to have this system work with no flaws before selling to public DIYers. So far so good , takes a new klima relay and new compressor with modified manifold hoses and modified a/c bracket . Sounds like alot of work but the efficiency is unreal compared to nippendeso. I will put the kit on my car in July and see how it goes since we are both down south and weather is hard on compressors here. We will update on further information.To answer your question no I dont know any compressors that will work well. But soon I hope to say yes.

Thanks for the info. However, I need to do something about it now. What about the 10P17C compressors?

The 10P15C compressors that the Benzes have are different from the others. They have a plug that is attached to the rear of the compressor. I've only seen this plug on MBs and is used to shutoff the compressor when the vehicle is under full throttle or kickdown. If you get another 10P15C compressor from another vehicle and find someone to rebuild it for you, considering the compressor isn't locked, a competent mechanic can rebuild it for you.
I've heard of people using the 10P15C compressors from other cars: Toyotas, Fords, etc.. and have had problems with excessive drag on the engine from the compressors not shutting off.
