Air box issue was resolved by a good night's sleep and looking at it with a good light source...doh!
Anyway if someone could please confirm where the low side port to add refrigerant is on the 02 SS I'd be extremely grateful. It appears as if its located below the driver's strut brace, but none of the AC refiller nozzles work on that. Only thing that happens is the refrigerant gets sprayed onto the hose and body since it won't seal correctly. Could some kind soul give me some direction before I lose what little sanity I have?
Edited in: Just wanted to note that the AC recharge kit I bought plus another hose with just the puncture on one end and the quick coupler on the other have the same issue. I was able to connect to what I BELIEVE is the high side port on the firewall and see 70 lbs of pressure with the A/C on max.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can lend some help here.
