Sorry to rain on your parade but best to know now. If you simply ordered from US website it will be LHD if you Ordered by part number you should be OK.

It is indeed LHD but... It's still cheaper to remake those two pipes to route them the other side than it is to buy a RHD from here in UK.
Find out when it arrives Jan 15th.

As long as they're not in the way of the clutch M/C or too close to the exhaust manifold, it should work...

Good job it's not an NSX - the mountings are at 45 degress, so the two are not interchangeable.

Should be loads of room from the looks of it.

Indeed - as long as the ABS pump pipes aren't too much in the way. There's quite a boss on the M/C unions and you need a couple of cm to align the unions to thread cleanly.

Only one way to find out...

Should be fine, I'll use flexi pipe so i can bend it out the way.
If it works its still a massive saving over buying one brand new in the UK.

didnt realise it was boosted. that area gets much hotter than with NA, my ABS pump failed through heat i reckon, pretty low miles too..

have you tried pulling the abs pump plug off or just pulling a wheel sensor so it doesnt do anything?

I didn't scroll down the photo far enough!

Now I'm using my eyes, I note the absent heat shield.

Upshot is, maybe Notts has a point.

Perhaps John ought to invest the savings in some thermal wrap for that exhaust manifold, in order to prevent future melted master cylinder seals?

Does anyone know the fitting size of the brake lines from the master cylinder to abs unit?
