Pressures at idle 29 low 150 high, if I wind the throttle up to the low RPM rev-limiter the low pressure goes high into the danger zone before the compressor releases. According to the gauge set my idle numbers are just in the acceptable range. The A/C lines that wrapped in heat shield are hot and one small line running up towards the accumulator (not the large one going into it) is ice cold. The Accumulator itself feels ambient and there is no condensation on it after running for 20 or so minutes. Something strange I noticed while leaning in and out of the car, the a/c vent to the left of the steering wheel is putting out colder air than all the other upper and lower vents. I'm starting to think this may be some type of HVAC system issue since I'm already having a problem with Recirculate not behaving as it should.
