I GOT A 97 EAGLE TALON AND WOULD LIKE TO START UPGRADING IT
MY BUDDY SAYS I SHOULD DO A MOTOR SWAP FROM THE 420A TO THE 4G63 ENGINE AND MAKE IT A 5-SPEED AND AWD.
NEED A LITTLE HELP ON HOW TO DO IT AND IF IT IS EVEN POSSIBLE?
ALSO HE SAID THAT IF I GET A 96 ACURA 6-SPEED MANUAL TRANNY, THAT IT "SHOULD" FIT RATHER EASILY. IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE 6-SPEED OVER A 5-SPEED. IF IT WONT FIT N E ONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT I CAN DO?

GOALS
6 SPEED
4G63 ENGINE SWAP
AWD CONVERSION

A simple search for "AWD conversion" yields 212 returns.

So far, I've heard of about five that have actually been done.

The 420A to 4G63 swap is effectively impossible.

Honda parts fit into DSMs the same way Abrams tank parts fit into a Maserati.

There is no 6-speed for the DSM that you'll ever see.
