air conditioning 1975 450 sl

I have a 450 sl and live in california. The air works but does not do the California heat justice. I would like to replace it with an after market version that works great. Any ideas on product, cost, and installation difficulty. I would have it done I do not work on my car myself. thanks jmf4pce

If you are in Southern California,
you could just go to Tj. Baja A/C shops and get real freon
I have paid the price to be R-134 and regretted it.
The old system is not sized for the new stuff.
