Smile RHD swap ??'s

i'm looking at using all RHD components possible and staying LHD in a ver4 sti swap to 95 L sedan. i want the simplest install and will get it.
- hydro pedal box(LHD) can i use RHD and make lines,or is there other clearence issues?
-gc8 elec ac still useable in LHD console? same mounts etc.?
-RHD brake MC setup will bolt into LHD spot with new lines(no ??'s here)
-RHD 2.7 steering rack: is it possible to convert my 3.0 turn rack to the 2.7 turn? this would be ideal!

any ideas would be appreciated greatly! want to make this swap as fast as possible, and RHD seemed easiest until lately. still considering both! -keith

if you are staying LHD and all of those parts are from the RHD car here are the answers:

-no, dont really understand the question here. you cant use the RHD in a LHD
-no
-no, it will bolt up, but the shaft is too long and the ports on the MC are on the wrong side
-no, not that ive heard

why will the rhd pedal box not go in? things are in same spot as lhd just hydro ver.

-use L throttle cable (for length and routing)
-rhd brake MC with new lines to fit lhd routing(simple).
-hydro pedal box is there(rhd) and i need it instead of L's cable crap.)same layout,size
-gc8 elec is nothing i need anyway
-shaft for brake booster: is it removeable? will L be right length? if it is the same brake system entirely from the rhd setup, there's no reason it shouldn't be correct. everything is identical except line holes are mirror image.

i'll have all the necessary brake parts with rhd setup and lhd setup at my disposal.

-bigger mc for 4 pots(rhd mc w/lhd lines adapted), stock L lines/stainless ones, rear discs, good fluid

-hardly "hacking". 100% oem parts w/stainless lines(sounds like everyones setup) and good fluid? dosen't every other person in the world use this? i think so!

-if the parts work while on a car and you put the entire assy. into another car without changing anything, they will work as they did in the first car. despite what anyone wants to "think" it has to nothing changed! i guess no one gets it?

The RHD setup and LHD setups are different. You can try and use the RHD setup in your LHD car but kiss your strut tower goodbye.
