Have the kit car rules completely changed from like 10 years ago?

no, but there are places that can make it a bit easier, though at a price. But there's a lot of documentation floating around on how to make the whole kit car experience a lot smoother, canadian factory five cobra owners have it down to a science.

Nice use of the subie drivetrain...I always wondered if you could mount it as a mid-engine setup.
Too bad that gearbox is made of glass.
There is a reason the Hewland is the go-to transaxle..

If you buy 'em, I'll build 'em!

Good luck getting a kit car insured in Ontario now. Facility is the only option. And registration is harder than it was even 5 years ago. Gave up on building a lotus 7 clone because of this.
