My question is this: since there was no damage to the internals of the original compressor, do i have to replace the accumulator/drier/orifice tube? Can i get away with just doing the orifice tube itself?
If you know for a fact that there was no internal failure on the compressor, then yes you can get away with doing that.

Kind of surprised that a modern Japanese vehicle would use CCOT instead of a TXV though.
