I assume you have a racing seat that has the holes needed to use a 5 point harness. you can get all the hardware you need from HMS motorsports. They import the Schroth belts which is what I use in my race car. If your belts have clip ins for the lap belts, they sell some special hardware that you can use to mount the lap belt to the transmission tunnel. it included drilling a hole and using a backing plate.

Are you running this car on the track?
Check with the track day companies and the tracks you will run with, and at, regarding the changes you are making. The changes to your seat and belts may result in a roll cage requirement. Also all track day companies that I have ridden with insist the driver and passenger seat be equipped identically if an instructor is needed.
The requirement for a roll bar, if you are belted in with a harness, is due to the potential for the roof to be crushed onto your head. With the stock three point harness a roof collapse is far less dangerous due to your bodies ability to shift sideways.
I can tell you, from my HPDE instructing days, that I would not ride in a harness equipped car without a roll cage regardless of the rules.
