    hey guys. i was thinking about the awd integra hondatuning magazine is working on and thought of a way to make a purpose built awd system. i'm trying to figure out, because of the b-series motors turns opposite directions, etc. you cant use a regular front engine/awd tranny, and looking at the regular trannies it seems impossible to put in a center diff(i am thinking by means of modifying the transmission/front diff housing). because of this, is it possible to just use a rigid connection? i am concerned with differating speeds in the front and rear during cornering. thanx.

    civics and integras share VERY similar chassis

    for the most part if something works on an integra it will work on a civic
    (some modification may be nedded... but they are based off the same chasis)

    ok i know now that a "rigid" center differential(finally found something on the internet; searching for days) is not good for road. i also noticed many of the high perfomance cars use a normally-rear setup(skyline) or have most of torque bias towards rear(~65%) when using limited-slip center diffs, which are usually viscous or multi-plate clutch types. do you guys know if a helical(like a torsen) will work good as a center deff? the only car i know that uses a helical ls center diff is the audi quattro. and i dont know much about the characteristics of this car.
