i have read supermoose and lachlans thread for jdm rhd swaps..very helpful but on supermooses thread he says
6. LHD AC condensor will NOT clear EJ20 radiator. i like having AC (live in texas)

also will my oem lhd shifter base fit with this center console?

i will do this on my 06 wrx ej25. my front clip has a/c lines/brake lines, brake booster, rack, dash everything. i was wondering if the a/c condenser will fit or if i will need a rhd one. thanks

also if anyone has any tips for me that would be awesome.

here are a few pics of the clip

i would use a rhd wiper set up...that way you can see in the rain. exhaust doesnt switch sides...just harder to fit us brand rotated kits. You can swap door harnesses side to side. youll have to find a jdm wiring schematic. cant go color to color. and yes cut a new hole and weld up the old one

woah, what is the bottle on the "passenger" side of the clip with the blue cap? Washer bottle? it's crazy looking.

Your center console should be the same, shift bezel too.

The JDM condensor can just stay.... you dont need it at all! Just an FYI; The USDM firewall also has all the same spots as the JDM clip. Ive done 3 RHD swaps in GD cars and ive never swapped parts of the firewall. Just used a hole saw and die grinder to make it perfect. Not sure if this was how you were going to do it, but most people have been hacking the firewall up and swapping sections of it which is totally not necessary.

If you find a way to wire the driver side door switch to totally work properly let me know. Ive tried everything and just about everyone. Ive always had to wire the driver side window button to the Right Rear and just lost the Right rear window function all together. I even got on the UK subaru forums and had people take pics of their window switch and asked for wiring diagrams but nobody could provide a wiring diagram. In the end 3 windows work and door locks work, just no right rear window function because the button is used as the right front window function. If some how you do get it to function correctly PM me that info.

The lower console will fit just fine, all you need is the upper part and vents. the RHD dash is ever so slightly angled to the right for RHD and the USDM stuff wont fit properly. But it looks like you have the stuff that you need accept for the center vents, you will need to find a JDM or EDM one. Look on Ebay UK for RHD parts. Ive always found what i needed there., although the wording for a lot of parts is much different.

PM me if you have more RHD questions
