Are these equipped with some sort of turbo super-duty HVAC or an advanced EMP? That mini pod on the roof has me curious.

Auxiliary AC condenser.  Some of the New Flyers were retrofitted, but not in a pod.

It seems like 8121 is the most recent arctic on the roads, but has anybody seen 8122 or later?

My guess would be that 8122 would be a 2020 XD60 from the First Transit-Phoenix West garage as not all 2007 D60LF buses have been replaced.

I'm wondering if there are more RAPIDs than we know about. In a New Flyer press release from September 2017, it said that Phoenix converted 30 options (16 XN40 + 14 XN60). That would cover 7313-7328 and 7186-7199. Not that I ever see RAPID, but those should have been here by the end of 2018.

Valley Metro 6812: New Flyer XN40 or XN60 Articulated CNG Xcelsior was featured in this past Thursday's The Tribune Sports Session newspaper featuring the Bahamian NBA Phoenix Suns Player DeAndre Ayton donating some of the supplies to Fry's Grocery store in Phoenix for those who were affected by Hurricane Dorian in Grand Bahama and Abaco, Bahamas.
