    As the title states, researching and building AWD 1994 Civic Hatchback. Engine will be LSVTEC, forced induction. Transmission will be 2001 CRV M/T. I am ONLY looking for qualified answers, backed by links for facts. No stupid comments, no drama, just facts.

    What I need to know as of 23AUG2016:

    1) Using B20 M/T, am I able to swap gears (I have a built M/T GSR available)?

    2) What front shafts to use for excess of 800+ HP?

    3) What rear shafts to use for excess of 800+ HP?

    4) Exhaust, fuel tank, and fuel lines will be removed/moved. Is there anything I'm missing in order to make room for shafts/rear differential

    5) Is it possible to use K series rear differential, as opposed to the B series CRV rear diff (maybe fab)?

    Any other insights, criticism, etc. is welcome, provided that it lends to constructive feedback to the build process.

    We currently have a awd build on the forum... and 800hp is stupid unrealistic.... welcome to hondaswap, also if you don't understand the amount of fabrication needed you don't need to be doing this swap, and there is no cut and paste method every one is different

    I priced it all out, it would be about $20k, with engine fully built and all. I already have most parts and understand the concept behind the fabrication. I greatly appreciate the link you posted and am nearly at the $10k mark in savings for this projects. Perhaps I'll save some more and buy his car... That's a good setup with all the hard work out of the way! :D

    20k is a nice down payment on a house. I hope its a labor of love because you will lose money on this.

    Good luck to you and show pictures of your build

    And it might be right on the $20,000 parts list but no way in hell is that going to pay for machine work and Fabrication, and if you already had the fabrication skills to do so we wouldn't be having this conversation

    When all your friends have subarus and evos, all you want is AWD.

    For 20k you can spend about 10-12 on a decent used Acura RDX, and then you've got turbo, AWD, and luxury. Then you take the rest of the money and throw a greddy turbo kit on your EG.
