Ive just ripped mine out...well the pipe work anyway......I would say calibra Aircon system is quite hard to Retrofit......you would need all the parts from a "donor" car....

1...Aircon Radiator
2...All the pipework
3...Loom for the sensors/switches
4...Aircon Compressor
5...Aircon matrix(like the heater matrix)
6...Aircon engine mount for your engine
7...longer aux belt (to accommodate the compressor)

The list goes on....

There are air-con kits available for kit, classic and rally cars that would be far easier to fit. Do a Google...

Would cost way too much.
Lewis Hamilton said that winning his first race felt better than having sex. Kimi's reply to that was, Maybe he never had sex.
