|Sorry I don't want to come off as being negative but I was curious about some of the details of this project. It seems like a lot of work and money for a small gain in horsepower.... How much is this build gonna cost you? What are your power goals?|
Why not swap in a 3SGTE, you can buy one with an AWD tranny. I know a shop that can do it. His name is Dr. Tweak. Here is a llink to his site:
He gave me quote a while back for a 3SGTE swap into a 1970 Toyota Corona. would have been under 5k for a complete swap and tune. 250 plus horsepower from a stock 3SGTE, not even hard to get it upto 400 hp.
For one you can do a Turbo for about $2K. 2 I believe it's a daily driver. 3 when you start swapping engine, tranny, transfer case , drive shaft rear diff and etc it becomes a frankenstien.
There's been talk about an All-trac swap but yet to see it. Keith will be the first , we know of, to put a TC in a AWD Vibe/Matrix. Anything you want to add Keith? March is getting close, Goodluck!
