I'm reading alot of your observations, yet can not see all the data from one session, reading bits and pieces from multiple sessions.

Ideally, what I'd like to see is the following:

1) Proper evacuation. And, advise how you did it, and how many microns you got down to immediately before charging, not the night before.
2) Amount of R134a in the system measured in ounces or grams, not cans.
3) What is the ambient temperature average around the car (not on weather channel).
4) What is the low and high side pressure at idle, and without any fans on condensers that are not on the car when you are driving.
5) What is the evap core temperature.
6) What is the center vent temperature on fan speed 2 or half fan speed
7) Windows up, fresh air controls to the left, heater boxes closed,
deck lid down resting on the service hose.
8) Which evaporator do you have and did it come with a new TEV attached.
9) How much of what type of refrigerant oil is in the system, in ounces.
10) Is the front condenser blower motor running when the compressor clutch is engaged, and if you have rear fender condenser and it has a fan is the fan running as well.
11) Post a picture of your rear fender condenser so we can see which way the tubes run and how it is plumbed.
