Default AC for the L67 T-type??

I wan to make the car a fully functional car which includes AC. I know it can be done but I more or less need to know what it will take to make it work. One guy who has done this swap used the old LN3 compressor, which requires some wiring changes to the L67 harness. Another guy who has don the swap had a donor SSEi and was able to pull all he needed. My issue is I do not have the luxury of a donor car. I am going to get some parts from the yard and some new.

I searched rock auto for AC parts and this seems to be the bulk of it :

compressor
Condenser
Evap core
Evap Tube kit
Orifice Tube
Power module?
Drier/Accumulator
Ref. hoses
Ref. Pressure sensor
Vacuum control valve

My question how mush of this would I need and I think I have to add a relay or switch of some kind to my T harness in the car as well.

I dont mess with AC stuff all that often, and maybe I am over complicating this like I do most things on this project.

I don't know of anyone that has done this. But sounds like a great project. Are you going to get a climate control? Another small problem I can see is the PCM changes the idle a bit when the AC is on, this would need to be tuned in to the PCM. Should be easy with something like HP tuner. Take lots of pictures and document the project. Others may benefit from your work.
