Default Camaro AC Help

So I have been looking at buying a ls1 camaro and the owner says when he swapped the engine from a previous f-body he did not put the AC system in. He claims to have all of the components though. So what my question is if installing the factory AC system would be a project or not.

It shouldn't be a problem if the guy didn't *** everything up when he did the motor

No issue if you have all the components. So not talking about inside cab components, under the hood you have the compressor, dryer canister, and condenser (in front of the radiator), and the lines connecting them. I would replace the dryer canister, maybe $40 bucks and inspect the other two. Condensers are cheap so never a bad idea to replace it also as it picks up a ton of debris. Regardless make sure they are clean, reinstall all components with a new oring kit and about 6 ozs of PAG oil. Pull a vacuum, then shoot 2/3 cans of freon in and bam you're done.
