Question What do you guys think about this project?

Converting my 93 L impreza to a 94 Gen1 or gen 2 STi? (making it left hand drive and whatnot)


how hard would that be finding all the parts i need? and how much do you think it would run me?

it isn't that hard at all accually if u think about it the only thing u'd need is a front clip and a fuel pump other than that a front clip should have every single bit that you'd need for RHD. if you would of done a search you would of found someone has asked similar questions and its been responed back that a RHD converison is prob. the easiest way to avoid wiring since its a plug and play replace old harness with new its just a bunch of wrench time instead of what wire goes were so how much would it run you? prob the price of the front clip you buy around 3000ish if u want looks? it'd be as simple as a 2000 L looking like a 2.5RS this time its a 94 wating to look like a jdm 94 wrx sti not that much diff hood conors bumper no biggie if u had a front clip that wasn't damage then there u go .

LHD is hard. making the JDM RHD harness match with the LHD car is teh problem. the spd impreza picture is the best example of that.

if u have about $6000 for a transmission conversion, the 6mt is easy to put in.
