Fast or slow release is dangerous to exposed and covered skin because the chemical is endothermic to get to room temp, so it will boil and suck the heat out of everything to do so. Cover your skin
the guy that was selling me the motor told me you can just unbolt the compressor from the motor and leave it dangling in the engine bay and the whole system will still be sealed, then chuck it back on the 1.8 when im done, is this true? im fairly confident on the first part but not sure if a 1.5 compressor will fit a 1.8. would be grouse if i didnt have to degas at all

The mounting point on the engine is different between the two. If you're lucky you can match the 1.8 actually bracket to the 1.5 compressor, but it's a mix n match luckiness

Then I must have won the lottery because my compressor went straight from my 1.5 to the 1.8 all that was required was for my to bend ever so slightly 1 of the hard pipes and by bend I mean kink!

I’m fairly sure... But being so long ago it’s a little hard to remember.
When we did my 93 swap, we left the ac & ps connected. We didn’t vent the gas, wait around for it to clear or use the machine to extract it. Pretty sure we just unbolted it from the g15 before removal and bolted it up to the 93.

That is Exactly what we did with mine too!
