r134. 90 degrees=105psi. as long at this was not a can that was in hot water.
let the system sit over night and check resting pressures again.

2 cans was not far from what you needed in there. also depends on engine RPM. check pressures at around 1500rpm, windows closed, fan on hi and recirculate.
hi was a bit hi but I don't think so for these cars. condenser area is still small and air flow is poor.
notice your low side went up on the 3rd can. but still depends on RPM.

you don't need a fancy system to purge the lines.
after connecting the new can, burp the line at the gauges.
if you feel the need to go the extra step, connect the new can, don't puncture it yet. open the low side gauge then burp the line to the can. close the low side. puncture can then burp the line at the gauge. then fill.

how much oil did you put in the system?
kuel will know better than me if too much will cause this problem of low vent temps.

you may try driving it a few days and see what it does.

I know kuel does not like this but I leave the deck lid open and put a box fan on the rear deck lid on low. pressures will go down when driving due to better air flow and higher engine RPM.
