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.
275 psi looks real high on the high side. I thought that should be 175 psi

Mine sits at 35 low and 175 high
