AWD Redline

I've been looking around. Looks kinda grim. Does GM have anything to convert the RL to AWD? Anybody seen anything other than GM that will fit a RL? Is an AWD Redline a Myth?

that's a sweet idea, but yeah that would be some custom & crazy expensive work

There's a guy on the SS site doing a RWD conversion I think...don't even know if it's legit. Never followed the thread...I just know he was parting out his car in plans for the RWD conversion

Yeah, its a myth. Probably the easiest thing would be to adapt an Evo drivetrain, since its longitudinally mounted.

What about a Saab 9-2x, I imagine there would be a lot less "engineering" using that, but I do not know how the engine aligment is setup

Thats the same running gear as a WRX. The same boxer engine and everything.

Saab is coming out with an AWD 9-3, maybe the transmission would be adaptable. The next problem would be running a driveshaft and rear differential, which I don't really think there is room for without MAJOR fabrication.

Saab's 'black turbo' project....

XWD (they are breaking away from sub's awd, and going more advanced) and 300hp+

I'm looking forward to it.

What's so major about fabricating a driveshaft tunnel?
