you could do a RHD converison and make it easy on your self and just swap out all wiring and do plug and play

all there is to it is lengthneing wires. that is waht im doing. using a USA WRX motor will be no easier. trust me. or ask around and hear all the guys mad splicing stuff into their harnesss. realistically JDM is actuall simplier bc of the year compatiblity ness with harness. like years are friendly.


better guts too.

why make it LHD when u can have RHD :P

cheaper to do. faster, and u gain a quick steering rack as well.

u need to lengthen the wires if u put in LHD bc the harness is routed differntly. basically pull out both harness, compare, adjust where stuff needs to be and make it. if u are pondering converting anything, thats how life kinda is.
basically just physical placement
