A/C boost

The X5 was taking a few minutes to blow cold A/C. Even with the auxiliary fan turning as soon the A/C button was pushed. It would get cold as soon as it started moving too. Today, i take out my A/C hoses and check pressure readings. The readings were not bad. I gave it a little boost. The system sucked in a decent amount in a few seconds. Cold air comes out within seconds of turning on. High pressure is maxed out for outside temp at the time. The previous owner had A/C work done. The compressor looks new. Other parts look new too. With temps about to reach the 100's, the system should work nice and cold. The new brushless auxiliary fan and clutch are working good.
