    anything is possible with enough money. it's not worth it though. it's too hard a will take a lot of fabricating. be prepared to get flamed for posting this because there has been a lot of unrealistic posts lately. and this classifies as something that is irrational. but i'm being nice. good luck and i hope i could help.

    Well I heard of a integra and a civic that were converted to awd so it would seem to be possible.

    Of course its possible, but the people that did those have lots of engineering skills and money, or they hired someone that did.

    its very possible there is a guy in our home town running a 90 crx si with a b18 supercharged with a subaru all wheel drive set up, needles to say its very very fast has the grip of a indy car.although he swapped out one of the gears in the tranny and had a special bell housing made to accom the tranny. it costed him 3300.00

    well, while we're in fantasy land, I'd fab in components off a CRV, that way it'd all be honda. and it would give you a sweet suspension lift to mob that CRX baja style!

    why not buy a mirage? you can swap the EVO drivetrain in and still be under 10K ~270hp AWD.

    Don't lie. Supercharging a b18 alone would cost $3,300. And I'm damn near positive that a Subaru AWD "set-up" costs more than that, not to mention the fabrication and install. You MIGHT be able to do that for $33,000. But idk, do those setups even spin the same way? Shut up and go home.

    shit for that matter go get an s2k engine, tranny and driveline, make the bitch a rear wheel drive drift monster crx, now that would be sexy... probably cheaper too.
