You knew that was coming

There are sooo many parts you will need. Everything related to the pedal assembly is different. Rack of course and a good body man to cut out new holes and weld up old ones.

Cheapest way to do that swap is to buy this:

I have most RHD interior parts from my clip. I am in WA so shipping might be a pain. Hit me up with an email if you are serious.

cool idea, but you 'll like the others said, a modded firewall, RHD rack, RHD pedal cluster, ALSO, you will need to replace the cowl under the windshield to accomodate RHD wipers etc (pain in the but).....My buddy converted his Jap SPEC RA to LHD and it was alot of work.....If you know what you're doing, it's just very time consuming.......I have an RHD STi GDB shell I've been trying to sell for a while now....I wish there were more people that wanted RHD

I am interested in RHD conversion parts I have been debating this for some time but I haven't because my turbo sits in the way of the steering shaft but my motor is out and I am relocating my turbo anyway. I am ready.

lol, just cut up my 95 jap WRX clip the other day. I have the rack if you want though and i have the pedals somewhere if you are interested. The only ****ty part of the swap and the reason i didn;t do it, is that you need to either cut out your firewall and weld in a RHD firewall or just the bracket for the steering column at least. and then just cut holes for the various lines and pedal linkages.
