yes, have to convert to cable shift... I think that is the only major down side to the entire build.
if this ends up not working, i know a guy that will take that transmission off your hands.
Is all this from a Protege? or escape/tribute?
2003 ZX2 --- SOLD
1996 Thunderbird LX --- Stock
I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.
If its the way I was thinking it would work. Its a hybrid. Escape trans and Protege rear. Never thought about the linkages being a problem until I saw the pics. Good luck! I have had the idea in my head for a couple years, but no money or parts to try.
98 Black MTX (no options) retired at 339k miles. Powder UDP, Kamikaze header, 19mm RSB,Fidanza flywheel, progress springs/SR struts, Otter strut bar.
02 black MTX (loaded) 127k miles. MMI intake, LXQ1. Waiting for warm weather to swap the rest from the 98.
I'm pretty curious to say the least. AWD is like... the greatest invention... ever.
Well.... for a car that is.
it seems like it would be easier to go AWD by transplanting another Zetec w/ATX into the trunk/backseat area to drive the rear wheels. twice the power, twice the drive wheels.
I was going to bug the fuck out on you if there was mention of a wrx drivetrain like every other idiot who wants to make it awd.
You actually know the proper way though, so I'm impressed. Get this shit done!
For old time's sake........ "I'd like to keep it FWD as much as possible."
