    Ok here is my dream. I know this has been done to a integra, now its my turn to do this to a civic hatchback. Would it be possible for me to take the rear driveline out of a 4WD 1991 civic wagon and put it into a 1991 hatchback and then take a B20Z out of a 2001 crv with trany and have a custom drive shaft made to connect to the rear differential. I have more than enough funds to have parts fabricated and purchase all equipment. I just want a second opinion. CAN IT BE DONE

    Can't do that. The CRV tranny only sends up to 10% power to the rear wheels only when the front wheels are slipping. You'd have better luck if you used an s2000 engine/tranny combo, or some other FR engine. You will need a tranny desigend for RWD.

    i think it'd be equally as cool to have a monster RWD hatchback. you oughta swap a force-fed s2k motor in it. just my opinion

    if you want to make it RWD or AWD you should put it on a frame or tube chassis. It makes it a lot easier.


    ford ranger frame
    +
    Civic body
    +
    460 from ford racing with 625hp/600ft lbs torque
    +
    supercharger
    =
    tire shredding 9 second civic hybrid.....
    and it'll only cost you about 15 grand....

I will start the project in about a month. and will be including a step by step howto along with a dvd. If anyone has any input that would help please let me know. Thanks for all the great comments. :D

    bahahahahaha



    where do you work? what do you do? and how much do you make?
    i would guess an exec to have the kind of funds for this, but then i don't think you'd be dumb enough to throw the money away
    sounds like one hell of a project though
    keep us updated

    I work on the electronic aviation controls on boieng air planes. I make a 6 figure income. This has been a dream of mine since I have owned the hatch. for 4 years now I have been dreaming this up.
