[DML] upgrading AC accumulator

I have an earlier style (non-corvette) type AC
accumulator. Since the the system was at atmospheric
pressure (open) when I got the car, I'm considering
replacing this component in an effort to get the AC in
proper working order. Is it possible to update the car
to the newer style accumulator? I imagine I'd have to
get one of John Hervey's longer spliced line hoses,
which is ok because I'm considering replacing the
lines anyway (if they prove to have leaks, otherwise
the cheaper solution is to just replace the old style

But what about the high pressure switch and relief
valve hub assembly I see on the later VINs? There's a
port on the later accumulator for the high pressure
switch, but where would the wiring go? (As far as I
know I only have wiring for a low pressure switch) 

Also, how robust are the evaporator and condenser
coils in our cars? Should I be worried about replacing
them as well or are the hoses and gunk build-up on the
coils a bigger issue?
