Default 2000 2.5rs WRX Swap - A/C?

Hey all,
Hopefully I am in the right forum. I have a 2000 2.5rs that has a ej20 out of a '03 WRX. When it was swapped the goal was to reduce weight so the A/C components were removed. I was living in Colorado and could get away with rolling the windows down in the summer and using the heat in the winter. However I recently moved to Arizona and the summers are not nice.

I am wondering if anyone has any insight on what parts I need to put the A/C back in (2.5rs lines and compressor? WRX condenser, dryer? etc.) Would really appreciate any ideas or information.

Thanks

Would the compressor fit right in with the ej20?

The RS compressor, dryer, condenser works with a EJ205 (This is the setup I have).

I did have custom ac lines made though because of the top mount intercooler.

How did you do your A/C lines? Sorry for all the questions.
