    so i was lookin on ebay for a tranny for my del sol with and i saw a jdm d16 tranny that was headed AWD. i was curiouse so i took a look and read the article. then i emailed the guy questioning him about it cuz i've never heard of these. he replied saying that jdm civics and accords offered an awd option. how would that even work with a 1.6 liter sohc vtec anyway? i didn't think it would be possible for that small of an engine to be awd so i wanted to know your guys's opinions. heres the link to his ebay page. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...item=7970822133

    You'd have to fabricate in the rear subframe from a JDM AWD model.

    awd should be in quotes. its like a 90/10 split at best.

    the extra weight won't even make up for the traction. so not worth it.

    if you want to do something worthwhile, score a new TL's AWD system and start fabbing :)

    I've always wanted to do an AWD EG hatch. It just isn't worth it.

    After looking into it you'll realize that the costs of fabricating all the parts get up there. Then you have to find a suitable trans. D series, no 10% RWHP is worthless. B series is the same. Then what do you have? Nothing, unless you want to try and jam a whole RL engine and trans in there. You might as well just buy a Subbie or some Evo or something.Actually you's be more succesful mountinng an SR20DE-T in there and making it RWD.

    Ok...I'm just rambling on.

    i'm sure there must be a way to modify or lock the rear output to get more than 10%. what about that integra (i think) that honda tuning did a while back? didn't they use a crv transfer case and weld the clutch plates together? you have to think outside the box.

    actually if you are referring to honda real time, it can be up to 50% split. also... ask him to supply the trans code...

    i looked into it but after hearing the 10% split i stoped searching. a few of the 1/2gen civic/rex sites have alot of good info on it.

    and how so? and with what tranny?

    same here. I was really considering doing it. Then I researched and everywhere said that it had only 10% rwhp and I completely changed my mind. I would try to mount a SR20DEt longitudally and make it RWD before wasteing my money on some crappy transmission. Plus I highly doubt its going to handle 400 or so HP which would have been my goal.

    Wow... someone raggin a tad?

    As far as the assumption that REAL TIME AWD is only 10 to the rear, you are wrong. It's up to 50%. So stop god damn saying that... /rant
