    Default 4wd conversion???

    Just wondering if anyone has ever done a 4wd conversion, if so what would I need to do so? And how difficult/expensive would it be?

    The only one ive seen was made by opel, as they were testing the insignias running gear in a Vec body. There is an Astra g with the conversation done and fitted with an LS1, it was a huge job, a whole tunnel had to be made.

    I did consider looking at either a calibra, cav or Saab 9-3, but didn't really want to be chopping cars apart to get the result I want since I don't have a driveway or garage But does the 9-3 have a similar chassis to the vec?

    What about the 9-3x? Wasn't that 4x4?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Then you'll either be paying someone else a lot of money to do the conversion, or you won't be doing the conversion. It's a lot more than just connecting up a 4WD switch.
