Not the whole kit, no. We have sold a good number of our LS1/T56 transmission crossmember kits, ABS relocation bracket kits, steering shafts and TOB kits (see below) to E36 RHD customers (down under), but the rest... not going to work.





The motor in our LHD installaiton is offset away from the steering shaft, so the motor mounts and headers would most likely NOT fit.

Thanks,

Update on RHD kits for E36 LSx, November 5, 2013: Vorshlag has ordered an entire front clip from a Right Hand Drive Japanese market E36 BMW. A local importer is working to get this imported for us, which will include the firewall, dash, steering column, and the entire front "dog house" - essentially the front half of an E36. They said it could take 2-3 months to get it to us in Dallas, so we are waiting.



When this arrives we will use this build into a "legal" and titled RHD chassis, using a US-spec LHD E36 donor. The goal is to make a complete street car out of this with the steering wheel on the wrong side. This should help us in the development a Vorshlag RHD E36 LSx kit. Too many of you damn Aussies keep bugging us to make this kit, so damn it, we will!

More soon...

Every effort to import a RHD model E36 has met with disaster.

If we could just get one of these cars here we could do this kit. Sorry.

Been 2 more years hunting but we finally found a RHD candidate and have begun the swap!
