We actually had cold air coming through the vents! Needless to say, the wife was pleased. Did notice extra engine "vibration" while the A/C was running. I know I have to change the upper torque mount. (It's ripped) Wondering if the extra vibration means that the passenger side mount need replacing... I don't know how to tell if that mount needs replacing, it's a pretty odd construction... But yeah, A/C woooo! 8)

If the front engine mount is shot, the engine is resting on the subframe. If not, it is up in the air.
