    HELP! RHD swap into my 02 WRX

    Im considering doing a RDH swap into my 02 WRX just for the fun of it and to be different. does anyone know of anyone who has done one before and can direct me to get in contact with this person? also parts...where do i start? i know rac, dash, window switches, pedals. what aobut steering colum brake booster, clutch master? also will the turbo need to be moved to the other side of the engine? it might be more practical to get a whole jdm car and part out what i dont use. (maybe and STI and get the drive line too. thanks for your help!
    If you selling a Cusco under brace (4pt) I'm interested. PM me if your selling one.

    I'd certainly think any RHD front clip would be a great idea. It's a great idea for dropping off mail but it'll be a pain at toll booths and drive through fast food.

    why?


    The entire clip would be the best option, as the firewall, etc., are all different. The engine harness is different, pedal cluster brackets, etc. It's a ton of work, having done a Civic..

    Then, there's that whole "inspection" thing. Depending on how your state inspection is, it "can" fail, due to firewall modifications..

    i have a NYSI lisence so im not worried aobut inspection. the fire walls are the same arnt they? i mean, isnt it just plates that are welded on to cover holes?

    havent examined the subaru that deep, but the civic was completely different:
    wiper assembly was wrong side, firewall had variations that appeared universal, but weren't, fuel lines, etc..

    just take a long, hard look at what you'll be undertaking, BEFORE you decide..
