GTS AWD Swap???

What are all the required parts for this job? I have a pretty good idea but I want to make sure I'm not missing anything. The reason I want to do this is because I want to make something new and be unique. I know it will cost a lot of money and be cheaper to buy a car with AWD from the factory. That's not my point, I have no problem spending money if it allows me to be unique. If anyone has any knowledge on this topic please let me know.

The vehicle below is unique. it also costs $600k or so if I am not mistaken. can you afford that? I would assume no, then you are not really unique any more. You are identical to a number of other people trying to take rather cheap vehicles and blow shit tons of money for being "unique".

Taking a car that you can get awd isn't really unique. Pretty silly. Taking a fwd 7th gen Celica and stuffing the power plant and awd system of an sti, now that's pretty unique and I would love to check that car over if the chance arose.
But if a gts is sitting over there with an awd set up all I would think to myself is wow... That's a lot of waisted money.

"Unique" sure. Financial mistake is a better term. It would be much easier to buy a Ralliart and "swap" in your engine. Much better results with half the get up and go. Say hello to bogsville.

Don't they make some of the base model lancers with awd these days?? Therefore, this wouldn't be unique at all and just a terrible waste of thousands of dollars. I sure hope you're not married!

Until you go to the manufacturing plant and hand build the AWD, body panels, chassis, etc. you're still buying the vehicle. The "built, not bought" argument is silly and constitutes a faulty generalization that people with large bank accounts just go out and buy the fastest car they can afford, but know nothing about it.

Good luck with your attempt, if you actually attempt it, but I think you're falling into a rabbit hole with this idea. While it might be "unique" in definition, sometimes that's not always a good thing.

They are rare, but yeah they make base lancers with AWD and CVT transmissions..

I didn't think they existed until i seen a guy at my local autocross show up in one..

Nope, that's unique. That 6 wheel thing is single model ever built as prototype.
