The A/C guy filled my stock Coupe GT system with R134a, and it's been 
blowing cold ever since.  I have a small leak at the compressor, so I'll 
just have it topped off or serviced when it needs it.

Not to start off a rope, I mean thread, but what do you mean by increased 
pressure?  We didn't do anything with my stock pressure switches (high and 
low), and I have the same compressor, so whatcha mean?
