79 crew, factory a/c or aftermarket?

Hey, just found the Wa chapter. looking for advicea on a/c. I'm
Building a 78 ford crew, I've done a frame splice and my rust free truck is now a 4x and I'm gearing up to do a 12 valve cummins swap soon. Question is, do I cut a hole in my beautiful firewall and use the factory air unit I have or spend the money and spare the hole? I was thinking that the aftermarket would give me some room for my turbo too... Any thoughts?

Go ahead and cut the hole.
It's not like the truck is gonna be "all original"

True, she won't be all original but I do want it to work well too and look as clean as possible and was a little concerned about clearance...
