Default how much freon should my 2k camaro z28 should have ?

i replaced an ac line that was leaking, my question is how many ounces or pounds should a 2k camaro ls1 have its completely empty (meaning it leaked it all out)

You should really have it taken to a shop to have them pull a vacuum on the system to be sure it's not leaking anywhere else and to get all of the moisture out of the system. How long was it open? If it's more than a couple days, you should replace the receiver/drier canister. (Big alum canister on the pass side.)

^ I sold the lid. And if it was missing an o-ring, that receiver drier canister may be done. It's got a desiccate in it so it'll draw moisture out of the system. If it's got a leak at all, it could suck up the moisture from around it.

I do know the systems on this car are a lot higher than normal..
