You want a Sanden unit as they are good quality compared to the cheap one you linked. However a new Sanden unit is under $800 if you can buy one from Cooldrive. Might even be around $600 IIRC. But you need someone who can buy from Cooldrive as they are wholesalers. That first link is way over priced, that seller gives eBay the nic-name of EPrey....

VS have two separate hoses/lines that connect to the compressor with a stud for each. The VT has only one stud and the lines are connected to one another with the pad. VS uses o-rings. VT uses rubber coated washer style seal.

Quite different. Go genuine wherever you can.

Wiring is just a single wire iirc to engage the clutch from memory.

Absolutely correct.

The other main difference is the pulley size which differed somewhat with the VT being rather larger which meant there was less force required to spin the unit and thus was a small fuel consumption decrease I guess because at that point the Holden was rather thirsty and fuel was rapidly rising in cost and every little bit helped I guess. With the VT engine the top idler pulley was decreased in size when this larger pulley version of the compressor was fitted.

In saying the above this configuration was already being fitted in some early 97 Statesman's while the Commodore was still being fitted with the smaller version compressor.

I be going for the complete kit with condenser for the age of the vehicle. You can buy genuine from Auto 8 on ebay that's where I got mine from.
