    so, i found a talon esi with a blown motor and a prime body and interior with 50K on the chassis for 500 bucks, is it possible to turn it into a Tsi AWD? i have a tsi awd at the moment but a salvage title on it.

    A 2g Talon Esi is going to be a 420a motor so it would take deep pockets and alot of fab to make it work with a 4g63 not to mention making it awd

    I can't recall ever hearing about a 420a car being turned into an awd DSM, so whether anyone has actually done it or not, I would say it would take deep pockets and a TON of custom fabrication skills and experience. I mean they say anything is possible if you put enough money into it, but all in all, I would say it's not practical in any way to attempt that unless you are a very bored master fabricator with nothing better to spend your money on.
