I purchased a 1988 Fiero GT with a 3800 SC swap that's not quite complete. The hoses for A/C go all the way back into the engine compartment but are cut off. The compressor on the L32 doesn't look like it has any fittings to attach to and there is no harness connector for the sensor at the front of the compressor. The other missing piece of the harness is the connection to the oil pressure sensor. Where could I get the parts to finish this swap?

Honestly, I'd hit the junkyard and see what parts were on the original car it came from (Grand Prix?)... and then buy what you're missing or need so you can adapt it to the Fiero condensor, etc.

I brazed on the 10mm switch port on the high side line near the firewall bulkhead and used the Fiero A/C OEM hose ends with new barrier hoses on them.
