what is the low side gauges showing when a/c running ? are you running 20 to 50 psi on the low ?

what is the high side gauge showing when running are pass the 150 175 psi on the high side ?

if you rev it up while a/c running and at idle what happens to both pressures ?

are fans kick in at all times

from what you describing sound like a restriction that is evident at idle , when you go down the road the a/c compressor will have more flow and push thru the restriction
