I am adding a Smart VOV to a '94 Corvette, I started reading about them and came across a service bulletin that says to add 2 additional ounces of oil to the A/C system when using this VOV. Is this right, you add what the manufacturer of the auto recommends then an additional 2 ounces? Here is where I found the service bulletin, it is step number 5:

The VOV's do not work! I bought 100 to use, installed about 10 and all 10 came back within a month stuck closed. I put in regular tubes now instead. The VOV is total garbage!
I'd still like to try, the benefits seems to outweigh the risks for me, so does anyone know if you need to overfill the system with 2 more ounces of oil when you use a VOV?
Apparently you can't post links in this forum , thats why there is no link in my first post to see the service bulletin, a moderator deleted it, at first
I thought the board here malfunctioned lol, that's ridiculous.
That site does not allow our links, so I return the favor.
We went through 25 of the severe duty models. No performance gain, actually lost performance in a couple vehicles. Don't even think we let one leave the shop with one installed. My opinion, lot's of marketing hype and claims of millions sold.
Thank you for the responses, I did not realize I posted a competitors link. I'm still thinking about whether or not to use the VOV versus a FT, the system will be completely new except for the compressor. A 5-10 degree drop in temperature at idle is what the VOV claims but if it is so prone to become faulty and people here have not seen this performance gain then I will probably go with the FT. Thanks again for the help.
Put a yellow tube (.062 I think) In that Vette and be done with it.
