Moving to Seoul South Korea

I am moving to Seoul in about ninety days and planing to ship my FD I need some info on registering my car.

My FD has large street port, reinstalled OEM injectors and OEM twin turbo, HKS V mount intercooler, HKS intake, HKS twin power, ProfecBII,PLX wideBand, Apexi ECU with commander and FC Edit. And OEM JDM Recaro seats. RE Amemiya body kits. Works VS wheels.

Any information on Emission and what is required to register would greatly appreciate it

I'm not on the military....so that's not an option for me. Back home I have a buddy that lives on non emission county so I just use his address and it work out for the last 17 years.

i found 1 for sale but i found out i have to drive 50 miles a day back and forth between Army base I'm going to be stationed and the base housing (25 miles away). Im going to need a different daily driver. it suck because i have a New rebuild FD engine coming with the household goods.

Heading to Korea as well might get a Dec 1 report date with an early report of Oct 1.
Not sure where I'm gonna go yet. I'm a Fister (13F) and I looked up the different spots I could go for my MOS. 1 slot down in Camp Humphrey's, 1 slot at Osan AFB, 2 slots at CRC (Camp Red Cloud) and the last spot is Camp Casey.
