Default Silvia or any right hand drive car.

Was wondering if the Silvia S15 can be driven on the street (Legally) same with right hands cars. Or a Import 240sx

S15 needs to be crash tested to meet American standards, so no it can't be driven legally. I've seen some RHD converted RX7's driven on the street, might be able to do the same to 240's. I'm pretty sure you need an American VIN to drive any car legally though.

I haven't Dynoed it yet, but I'll estimate around 280-300RWHP.

Actually, it's more emissions than anything. I've seen my fair share of RHD cars here in Chicago, there's a pretty good tuner scene. One guy has a new GTR, *AND* a BEAUTIFUL R34 Skyline GTR. The Skyline is RHD as seen in this video. In fact, I'ma run by there tomorrow, just to price out a few things for my DSM. I'll see if I can find out more about what he had to do to get the car into the states/legal.

In this part of Canada we see lots of RHD cars. They just need day time running lights, must pass a mechanical inspection and pass emissions.

You know... I was thinking about this thread and remembered seeing a RHD 240 on CL. Seemingly, he's done the work for you, if you want one. =)

I think you should import 240SX. It will be a much better option.
