If the compressor is not shutting off when your center vent is as cold as it will get, (53 degrees) the thermostat is NOT the problem.
If the compressor is shutting off, it can be shut off by the binary switch, because of too much high side pressure, as well as by the thermostat.

I may have missed it, but did anyone ever vacuum the system down and recharge?

Again, Have YOU YOURSELF LOOKED at the heater hoses to make sure they are correct. since this was changed and then the problem developed it could be part of the issue. don't take anyone's word for it DO IT YOURSELF

hose from intake manifold to control valve
return from heater to water pump
also check the direction of flow on the valve its self. if its backwards it may allow flow.
DO THIS AND REPORT BACK

Installed the two ball valves this afternoon (high of 84), made certain that they were both closed, and took it out to test the a/c with NO hot coolant to the a/c system ... no change. Measured temp still got no cooler than 53 degrees at the vent. Engine temp is rock solid at 190 and (1,300 cfm, with shroud) electric fans are working perfectly.

It would probably be easier to troubleshoot this system if the instructions were a) legible b) complete and c) up-to-date. I had to put the instructions together from 4 different systems on their site and still had to contact their support department (which I admit, was very helpful and quick to respond) for additional instructions.
