hey does anyone know of someone that has done this type of conversion to their tib?? i plan on doing alot of work on the "Tibbi" during winter since i have a month off from school, so other than the clutch, turbo, and internals as well as fuel system. i was looking into making the tib an all wheel drive. is it possible??? could i use a mitsubishi eclipse for the rear transaxle??? well please i would appreciate any help from all. THANKS!

The only people that I know that have an AWD Tib are the Ralley teams. Hyundai also has the AWD on the HCD3. If you were in some way able to talk to Hyundai and get the AWD from them... then you might be able to do it!

I think in the long run, it would be cheaper to buy a Santa Fe, then replace ALL the body pannles with Tib body parts! It may be a tuff fit and require some custom work just to make the pannles fit, but in the long run I think it would still be easier AND cheaper than converting the tib... But who knows... Not trying to rain on yr parade... Good luck!

Your easiest way to do it would be to do it like McIntrye Hyundai did. Slap another beta motor in the trunk, then somehow link the two trannies (auto trannies will be easier to link than 5 speeds), and link the two throttle controls.

That should only run you about $5000.

If you want to stick with a front engine AWD setup, good luck, 99% of the stuff will have to be custom fabricated, and drivetrain losses will lower the 140 HP at the engine to about 80-90 hp to the wheels.

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.

Yes I have an '84 vw rabbit gti....its my daily driver. I have yet to do any work on the rabbit...but it will soon get an engine swap, and some body work.

anyway, how about that AWD thought? i want it sooo bad. i am gonna talk to a friend tomorrow that has a gsx eclipse, he said we could finagle with it for a bit, and see what we could do!!! wish us luck.<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Are you sure its $90k for the setup though seriously?

A fully loaded rally Accent $750,000. hehe ya that would account for the $90k for sure <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

man, i dunno about this anymore. Sounds like i have to have bill gate's wallet to do this. I am pretty good at thinking things out, and have a few friends that are also smart, and i know we can think of something. heck, even if we have to fabricate our own rearend for the tib. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
I'm gonna stick to it, and keep on thinking!

Yeah, and you'd have quite a few headaches alot with that huge budget. I love tibs, but if you want AWD, the WRX is a good choice.
