Well I’m bored so I might as well start this thread. I have decided to do the AWD conversion and also build the engine while I’m at it. Bad blow by is causing problems with turbos so I’m just going to go ahead and go 8:1. I have been talking about doing the AWD conversion for > two years now and collecting parts here and there when I found a good deal. I wanted to start this quite a while back but buying/selling a house and some other stuff has kept me from doing it. I plan on taking my time with this build/conversion but having it done and tuned before NG. This will be pic heavy and I plan on documenting pretty much everything. Hopefully it will move pretty quickly but I will probably only be able to work on weekends if I don’t have any other things going on. Wish me luck!


Thanks to shooter83 (Evan) for threads like the one day AWD Conversion and all the others that have shared their information.

So what do you figure an AWD conversion would cost?
No engine work just the drivetrain.
i'd say $900 shipped. :suspect:

ahh...paint. i'm also jealous of that.

Actually I was going to give you a call and see if you want to come over and give me a hand. :)

It really only took me an hour to drop it but I'm sure the awd would have took a bit longer.
Those were your pistons!
What the hell happened?

Granny
Different engine

I'm going to clean my rear subframe off and spray 'er down when I do the AWS delete.
Yeah, I'm not going to install the aws system. I have a delete coming from PMP. I want to try a keep it as light as possible.

Yea well I seem to get side tracked every other day with something else. Put the car down, waited on the block, got bored bought a project car. Then I have been waiting on bearings for god knows how long, and I started on a drag car. Go figure. It is currently sitting on its own weight and is fully converted. Just waiting on the engine to be finished up. I've got so many parts around here man let me know on anything, happy to help.

Not much to report, I spent most of the day finding the right combo of tools to remove this fwd stuff (PITA). I'm sure the other side will come off much easier now that I know a good way to do it. The cold weather doesn't help much for my motivation. :lol3:
