Default 1996 Civic & a k20a3 Swap - Adding A/C

Hey guys, not sure if this is where to post this or not, but anyway..

I have a 1996 Civic, and stock, it's never had A/C. I've recently got the k20 mounted and installed. If I want A/C for my summer cruiser, then now is the time to do it I'm thinking. I know it's a hassle, but what is everything that I will need for this?

So far I'm thinking:

Compressor
Evaporator Core
Condenser
Air Conditioning Drier?
Heater Core?


Oh and of course 96-00 Civic (EK) K-Series AC Line Kit from Hasport.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

There was a site somewhere where you could buy a complete OEM AC system, new, for not too much cash. Hopefully someone remembers and will post it up soon.

But yeah, condenser, compressor, AC lines, evaporator, compressor belt, etc.

You can buy the entire kit from Honda for a few hundred bucks. I can't find it, unfortunately.

However, is there even room for an A/C compressor in your engine bay?

Damnit. Looks like no A/C guys. The JRSC cooling fan goes where the A/C compressor would go. Disregard this thread, and thanks anyway.

I personally have seen TWO civics with the K20 and a/c. So I know it is possible. It may just take some tweaking of the set up. Its not too difficult to move the parts around or fab up parts...I work for an HVAC company. You could make it work. Im adding a/c to my b18 right now.
