If you want AWD, get a Vue. With the time and money wasted on an AWD setup, a really fast RL could be had.
yeah I thought about this awhile back. look iunto saab AWD parts. it would be pricy but it can ben done?zvillepimp1982 said:Yeah I thought it might be cool to try to Frankenstein a Redline like this. Ive got a lead on a totaled Vue Redline so I could get the AWD tranny pretty easily. Im just wondering how extensive the modification would be to make this work
Ok i dunno if anyone has thought of this but umm.. we have a 2.0 saab ecotec wtf ever... and a vue had a umm 6cy honda engine in it.. dont quote me on that but i know it has the 6cy in itzvillepimp1982 said:Would it be possible to modify the AWD transmission in the Vue to work on the Redline? I just think the idea of an AWD Redline would be awesome!
Hey, then we could finally get good gas mileage! I think I remember hearing that the electric motors make good torque. I bet it must be really heavy with all those batteries though.ptparker said:you would be better off getting a totaled honda civic hybrid or pruis and taking the motor, batteries and controller and hook it up to the rear end. So your front would be gas, normal redline and the rear would be an electric. If i am not mistaken, there is not a normal geared tranny (i think it is direct drive, or similar) so you would be ok.
Doubt it.Michelle said:I'm probably just retarded, but, I thought I read somewhere that Saturn plans to make an AWD Redline in something like 2009, I'm ALMOST positive.
I say go for it. Isn't the whole point of modding and customizing to have something that's a little different than the guy next to you? Also to have bragging rights? Personally I think it would be cool to see a AWD REDLINE.crazybrew609 said:ok first off... the only VUE AWD system we could use would have to come from a 2.2 not a redline vue whic has the honda 3.5L V6.... secondly... all of the AWD systems for the VUE's are AUTO.. so no more stick shift.. and if you want to cnovert it over to a stick you cant cause all off the AWD systems for the 2.2 were VTI tranny's... which for the poelpe that don't know SUCK ASS.. they can't hold power and grenade themselfs to death after 30k miles on a stock 2.2 engine.. that same tranny on this car wouldn't last a week..
listen if you want AWD go get an STi or an EVO.. stop trying to make this car what it's not going to be
