Well you can get one but it takes a lot of work. Also mine is not registered for street use either because the epa and dot can be quite a pain in the ass. So hopefully one of these days I'll get it all taken care off.
Anyways thanks for looking.

What state are you in. Im from NY 2nd toughest state with emissions and regulations, and I have several friends with right hand drive cars. 1 Skyline and another with an EG. No problem at all, your engine is fine for dot emissions, only thing might be bumper reinforcement. Let me know, ill give u more info..

didnt even see your post rvm...Its possible...its been done, just its a lil pain cause theres one of two ways, easy or hard...easy way, take it apart send it over and avoid the import taxes etc etc..2nd way import it as is, get hit with govt import and them regulating everything about the car thats wrong lol

Lucky for me I'm the second owner of so I didn't get stuck with the customs fees and US Import taxes. DwP02 what did you have to do to get passed for smog. I dont evan live in a testing area and there giving me the runaround.

Here in Guatemala we RHD car owners are battling with the transit authorities because they want to prohibit the right hand drive cars.

Damn it LAWS SUCK :mad:

By the way, where do you buy stuff online for your EK9 in the USA? i havent found any good online store with good stuff + customer service, i think passwordjdm.com is the best, but they're way to expensive. :rolleyes:
