    Well now you do. Unless you deliver mail it's completely pointless.

    I can't imagine it's cheap though. Don't you basically have to swap over to a left-hand drive front clip? I mean I suppose you could do it cheaper if you cut corners, or if you have the know-how to do it yourself...

    RHD conversions are a novelty, "JDM bling" if you will. Actually driving a RHD car here in the States would probably get annoying real quick...

    it's really not that annoying. i'm just paranoid about it. i'm afraid to get jacked. it draws stupid attention too. the kids like it, but cops get all over my fucking nuts. thats probably the worst part.

    Ok in first place i'm from Portugal.
    I actually have a DC2, i'm thinking in selling it,
    and go to UK, and bring a DC5.
    I've being studying the hand drive change, and i think
    Honda it's the only place...

    pics of the dc2?

    try to find a company that imports engines. you can get an empty clip that they strip out and use the subframe to swap it all over. should only cost maybe $300 in parts and $500-$1000 to pay for the conversion. if you try to buy everything from honda, you will pay a lot and probably miss out on some parts.

    Definitely DO NOT try and buy all the stuff you'll need from the dealership. You'll end up spending way, way, way too much money...

    a clip is when companies import the front half of a car to sell the engine out of it. they have basically a car cut in half that they have shipped over. when they take the engine out, they still have the whole fram of the car left.

    dude, stop asking, you are incapable of doing this yourself!!!!

    if you really want this done. go to a shop and pay a custom fabricator to do it.
