Looking to purchase a turbo L3 Sprint/Firefly and was wondering if anyone has added and if so, how (any kits available)?

TIA

Your best bet is to find one that has a working unit already installed
during production. If not a working unit, than at least one that has
one relatively intact, or at least at one time had a factory unit.

There are members here that sell used parts from time to time,
you can check the parts for sale.

If you're lucky you can piece together the items you need to
complete the system. If you're starting from scratch then it's
much harder. I have noticed several items are still for sale
new on the internet such as compressors, condensors,
accumulators & electronic control units. Your success will
depend on your skill level and familiarity with HVAC systems.

Good luck and let us know how you make out.

If you find a car that don't have A/C and plan on adding it, look for the system out of '94 or newer cars. It will be set up for 134A and will perform better than a converted system.
