thanks for the kind words guys
I wonder how many people know that these were used as Highway Patrol cars out here when they were new. Supposedly because they were just about quicker than most things out here at the time that weren't big dollar sports cars.
they were released in NSW but im unsure of any other states here in australia.. apparently they were phased out due to the fact of torque steer and the shitty brakes lol - still would of been pretty cool to have seen one back in the day
cheers city hunter!
there isn't alot at all to the conversion, engine drops straight in and mates to the gearbox. the only thing you will need to modify is the top engine mount and wire ecu to suit, all very well straight forward. i use to stock alot of parts but due to room and the parents having a fit with the parts everywhere, i ended up giving them away to another enthusiast.. nothing beats the smaller AUS spec bumpers
i would kill for the number plate surround on the US spec cordia though! keen to see some photos of yours
the intercooler setup isn't anything over the top, it uses 2.25' pipes so it was just a tight squeeze but it helps keep the cops at bay
