of course you can do it. The thing of it is though, your undercarriage is not designed for it. I know that Subaru gets their AWD systems from a company in Austria. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of that company though.

As far as the cost, the system itself is about the cost of a turbo, or bit more. 4g-10g

It will cost alot more than the price of a Turbo.

I don't know if it is true or not but I have heard that Libra racing has $90,000 in their AWD conversion for the rally tib.

hey cool thanx for the info, i wasn't dead set on awd anyway, just curious.. i want to get mine to the mid 13, or even low to mid 14 second range (1/4 mile of course) as an eventual goal, i dont see myself getting the tuscani, i'd like to see hyundai evolve some more, i've owned 3 so far.. 93 elantra, 99 accent, and 01 tib.... id like to see what's next after the tuscani, or how it evolves.. till then i love my 2nd gen tib!

ok, if AWD costs $90g's, then wouldn't the WRX cost over $100g's? AWD systems are not as expensive as you think, also...if they put that much money, its because they are dumping money into a race car, that has a lot of developing to do.

I agree but it would be alot more than a turbo kit would be.

1st you would have to pay a company to develope it. Then you would have to buy it. Then pay someone to install it.

Sorry Mateus but this has been discussed several times in the past and yes it would be alot cheaper to just go buy a WRX and you would wind up with a much faster car.

If you realy want to know more about it then I would suggest contacting Libra.

Just a theory but since the Santa FE/Tuscani share the same engine how hard would it be to convert it to AWD using the Santa Fe hardware. I think i remeber something about the Libra team using the Santa fe awd system on their car. But it's just speculation.

You would need to have the same platform overall as the Santa Fe.

I'm not sure why people aren't trying a Sonata AWD 6-speed 2.7L. The only thing with the 6-speed part would be if it would attach to the AWD system etc?

Umm sorry ya your right that would kick WAY TOO MUCH ASS!

2002 Sonata+ is the one I am talking about.

Just out of curiousity. Would you guys think this is possible??

Um, this is a little off the subject, but how hard would a rwd conversion be?

Guys, anything is possible.

AWD- your floorpan would have to be drastically changed, and if you have to put a driveshaft in a little off center, you're going to loose some foot room for you or your passenger probably. You also might have to pull some engine bay space out of your ass to put in a transfer case.

RWD- have a custom adapter made for a tranny that you buy from another country and ship over. Fab engine mounts to turn the engine sideways. figure out how the hell to redo the front suspension without the FWD setup.

Either way, with the rear wheels driven, you are going to probably need a bigger transmission and driveshaft tunnel to clear the mechanical bits. The dash might hide the extra intruding firewall though. Your gas tank is going to have to go, because it's in the way of the driveshaft. It's either custom tank or fuel cell time. Your spare tire gets the boot (from the boot! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> ) because you need a differential there, unless you figure a way to squeeze it in and still have any suspension travel. Then you need to figure out how to do the suspension for the back.

This will either take a LONG a$$ time or a couple of cubic dollars. I was thinking the other day as I sat behind an old impreza that that would be the car to steal a driveline from, but then you get to figure out all the custom everything associated with mounting and electronics.

But with time and money all things are possible. Heck, there's a company that will, with your PT cruiser and $100000 give you a viper V10 and RWD setup. I actually did some measurements a while back and the V8 setup in my truck would probably fit the lantra with minor additional footwell intrusion.

You might need a few hints from God himself when it comes to getting that suspension right with a V8, though! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>


<hr width=60% noshade size=1 align=left>Yes, you.

Hmmm a pT cruiser with a V10<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

PT cruiser = $20,000
Swap =$100,000
Total price = $120,000
(and you still drive a PT cruiser)

Or just buy a Viper for about $75,000 and you will then own a car that really turns heads.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

ahh horseshit, you're thinking the hard way

you just need to lift your tiburon, about 6 inches...

then you have all the room in the world to put the awd in

or even better, you could just do a straight 4x4 conversion... you could do all of that for under $10k

if you want to do this, mail me, i will give you the address that you can get it done<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

hmmm raise it 6 inches eh? lol 10k? naaah.... i'll just stick w/ my intrax -lowering- springs and fwd... im thinking about getting an lsd though.... and that stage 2 turbo kit..... i figure that much extra power should be evenly distributed <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

You know, we already have a nice (mostly straight groove down the underside of the Tib for the exhaust. Now if you raised the car slightly, re-routed the exhaust...you could possibly run a drive shaft down that groove to move the rear wheels.
But like everyone said above, it'll cost you an arm and a leg.

monster truck tib

let's go to the junk yard, get us a little old tib, fix it up, turbo it, and lift it up 6 ft from the ground

that's what i'm talking about peopleseses


****, lets turbo nd super it lol



what about this: buy a santa fe, remove the frame, and put the 2nd generation tiburon body on that... have the v6, and have the bigger tires... probably would be just as cheap as an awd... and you get the interiour of the santa fe, lots of body modifications required
