    I have "idiot" idea - swap my ff with JDM accord\torneo (maybe orphia\crv\hrv) AWD.
    So, I know what some accords\torneo and etc autos have awd. Any chance to swap it to accord 94-97 ?

    You're thinking of a Trueno, which was a Corolla....not an Accord...

    And unless I'm mistaken, they were RWD, not AWD, and are not compatible with an Accord.

    Its one of those "If you have to ask, you shouldn't be doing it" To do the swap, you have to do massive amounts of custom fabriaction, and costs thousands to complete. There is no step by step how-to guide because its pointless to do. Buy a scoobie.

    Are you sure, I am talk about hoda torneo, not toyota trueno? Because I have several catalogues and official information, what torneo not same with corolla. Also torneo have same wheelbase as same years accords - 2665mm and have very close external look to same years accords.
    here is offical press-release:
    http://world.honda.com/news/1999/4990121.html
    Also torneo and accords have AWD not rwd in some versions but only for JDM versions.
    I need to see under hood space to see 1 thing - engine position - normal or turned on 90 degrees.
    Also I know some peoples which can get AWD from orphia to civic in 1k details and $200-300 for work in my area (Eastern Europe). It's nt a problem and no need much work to do that.

    I know what you do not have guide to do that swap, but my question is - is it possible with details from AWD accord (97-02) or same years torneo or from orphia\crv\hrv? Only theory question to make decision - it's possible to do with standart details with small modifications or not.

    i'm sure its possible and it seems shops by you do it, so go for it...

    you won;t find info on those cars on this website though...

    try using a translator and searching pages with a .jp suffix for pictures of the engine bay

    or maybe check car reviews, they will often say what has changed and usually if the engine position in relation to the car has changed they will mention it in the review...
