[20v] '91 Coupe Overhaul - Question #2

My '89 90Q with the 10v has both.  I live in western MA, so it 
doesn't get super hot but I want to be able to run the A/C without 
worrying about overheating.  I'll probably leave it for now and keep 
an eye out for a good used one or a good deal on a new one for next summer.

Thanks.
