Default Smoked an A/C compressor

Yes it was hard to keep lit..

Running out on the highway when she started blowing hot air.
Switched off the A/C when a following friend radioed that I was smoking.
The compressor seized and fried the clutch.
Luckily the pulley bearing is still good and the hatch vent was welcomed.

So now the question is replace with an OEM or upgrade the compressor to a more efficient aftermarket unit.
