After cutting out the center of the front cross member to facilitate engine removal I put in a 1" square tube cross memeber to support an izuzu IC.

As for AC I plan to reinstall the compressor in the next few months. I am using a sanden off a dodge neon with a custom bracket. Hopefully this will not block too much airflow through my radiator.
