Apexbender is cool... so far.
Hypothetically speaking, I have a 2007 WRX (totaled but mechanically sound) in my backyard. I have a daily driver other than my CB7. I have the skills and time to do it. I know that the CL2 20002001 (wagon) came AWD, so there is a base that could support my hypothetical situation. What would you do if you were in this scenario?

SH-AWD is what I would like... Check this video out. Pretty cool stuff.

I would look for a 97-00 Impreza RS and drop the 07 wrx parts in it. I've seen some with the STI 2.5L installed so i bet your 2.5 would work the same. Also i like the old school Impreza RS with all the hood scoop fun. This way you wouldn't have to worry about cutting the frame to run the awd components and figure out how to mount a horizontally opposed motor in your engine bay. Aftermarket kits and such are good for that car as well if you're into that.

But then he's not making an AWD CB7

It's doable, sure. A18A on 3geez (also a member here) has created an AWD 3rd gen Accord using parts from a Nissan Bluebird SSS.
AlmostJDM here on this forum is in the process of making a RWD CB7 using an RB25DET (the requirements for a RWD conversion will be similar to an AWD conversion)

It will take a LOT of work, a LOT of research, and quite possibly a good deal of trial and error. Once you get the car running, you'll have to go over it VERY carefully to ensure that it's stable and safe. You'll be compromising the structural integrity of the unibody, and you'll need to make sure it's properly reinforced. Plus, with all the hacking that will be done to make all 4 wheels driven, you'll have to be careful that they can be properly aligned... toe, camber, and caster.

If you're confident in your skills, go for it. Expect it to take twice as long, cost three times as much, and be infinitely more difficult than you originally assume, though!

here's some images from A18A's build... He used a Nissan Laurel, which I think is the same thing as a bluebird?

Ah, ok. Larger than the Bluebird. Closer to the Skyline.
I thought recalled an SR20DET under the hood, which is what the Bluebird used (longitudinally mounted, like a FWD car.) The Laurel is a RWD or AWD car with the RB series engine... longitudinally mounted I6. I suppose the AWD system isn't all that different, and can be used with the FWD or RWD oriented engines with the correct parts. It's largely custom anyway!

h22sparkle may have said something they shouldn't have...
The concept is nice dont get me wrong but for the amount of money youll be paying its best to just get another car that is already AWD unless you have alot oftime on your hands. That is a project though I would absolutely love to see.

I've thought about this concept myself, but right now I don't have the time, money, or knowledge to go through with it. Would it be easier to just go out and buy an AWD car? of course, but would it be as cool of having a one off AWD Cb7? no. If you can do it please do. When/if you do it, keep us updated.

I'm locking this thread now. Beyond this point, it is not a "beginner" question, and I don't care to see any more people repeating what has already been said just to whore up their post count.

If you have the ability to do it, go for it... but you'll be doing something that nobody here has ever done.
