it is not worth the time to do the awd conversion. it's cheaper to just get an alltrac.

I am selling a gt4, already with a full awd swap. Just needs some engine work. It would be cheaper and easier for you to buy my car and make a 500 hp monster, then do an awd swap.

Your objective will require a new rear floor pan, and custom fabricated mounts for the suspension. You will also need to use a fuel cell, and wire up the engine, which I have heard can be a pain.

I still find it amusing that, even though you figured out to go to Alltrac.net, you can still get all track and all trak
