The AC blows air but there is a time lag in the compressor engaging sometimes the compressor does not even kick on. When the compressor does come on its almost like a drain on the hole engine.

Sound.s like you may have a bad clutch on your ac compressor,you said when it kicks on, it drag.s car back,that may be because it is bad and dragging your belt back,therefore you lose a little power,most ac,s do drag a liitle on the car ,but if it is doing this,may need to check your ac compressor.

Low refrigerant will cause a lag in compressor on time. If its too low, it won't kick on at all. But if the drag you mention is extraordinary, it may be time for a rebuilt compressor unit. Don't forget to change the receiver/dryer unit at the same time.
