I'm following this path now.

Any AF teleconverter will do ? I think there was a thread on the forum about that DIY project but can't find it now
It comes down to which lens you plan to use it on and the math. Th 2x and 1.5x converter tubes will give different values on close focusing and magnification.

Yes, the math I can do

I meant, there was a thread somewhere in the forum teaching how to take the class from the teleconverter without damaging the circuitry so it can be used as an AF extension tube.
