My AC works. Unsure why turbo and AC wouldn't be compatible...??

Yep AC will work fine with turbo. Look at all the turbo Supras and Aristos with factory AC. What I’ve read can cause problems is doing a high rpm pull and breaking the AC clutch. Make sure AC is off if you’re going to go past the stock rpm limit during a pull.

Usually the AC clutch is deactivated under WOT or over ~4000rpm. Even 6500rpm is gonna sling the guts out of the compressor.
