Lets discuss A/C upgrades

On my list of upgrades is a A/C upgrade. There seems to be alot of options from relatively cheap to pretty expensive. Since I am putting on a 964 intercooler and will have to get rid of the big ol york compressor, it seems like an appropiate time to do any other mods that I will need. Most of my factory parts were all replaced with new stuff within the last few years according to the reciepts I have, about 2k worth of stuff. I know I need a new compressor to fit the intercooler but unsure what one, or what else I should add as long as the charge is out. Lets hear some ideas!

I have a massive PerformanceAire under-belly condensor in my garage which I haven't had time to install as yet. It's suppose to improve cooling considerably. I had to remove the OEM unit from under my tail to accommodate the full-bay IC.

a/c upgrades?

I had one of those "performance condensers" on mine when I bought the car. Maybe it helped the system when it all was working 100%, but all I found that it did was collect crap from the road and add about 15lbs. to the car. Not to mention that if I still had it on the car now that I lowered it 3", it would be history from impact!! I suppose I should not fault the unit just because I slammed my car, but it is something to consider.
