ok, i was thinking about making my 2wd an awd.. but i was wondering..

How much would something like that cost?

what would the bennifits be and the lows of have a celica 03 gt awd?

would it be worth the cost to do that?

is it considerd a major mod?

how many hours of labor?

now if I had AWD will it change my tourqe and hp, will i lose torqe or gain..

How much would i lose/gain about?

sorry for the misspelling.. but yeah you know what im tryna say...

It would take a ton of money, probably more than a turbo setup. You'd need the AWD drivetrain out of a Matrix XR. You'd lose a lot of performance, since you'd be adding a significant amount of weight, and reducing the power at each wheel (split into 4 wheels instead of 2, plus reductions from the driveshaft to the rear wheels).

I never realized toyota made an awd matrix.. dosent the matrix sit on the same fram as the celica? I have never seen this done with imports because most of them are uni-body but on alot of the antique cars say 32-44 fords you could jsut swap the frame

I am guessing that toyota's frame is pretty well bonded with the body

Ya toyota made the Matrix AWD for 2006 (gone on the 2007's i believe) however Toyota decided to be completely retarded by making all AWD Matrix's AUTOMATIC!!! Who would want an AWD AUTO?!?! If the car is AWD I would want atleast a 5-speed manual or even a 6-speed manual.... but auto???

Get an engine swap if you want AWD/RWD, celica's engine arent cut out for it

I'd say.. 10k - 25k, just MY estimate though..

Just like any other RWD
TruxLazie said:

Depends if you really like your celica
TruxLazie said:

No, an engine swap/tranny/RWD is considered as a minor mod.

It'd take over a week or two.

You will lose cause it has to transfer to Rear wheels but you should accelerate quicker, seeing if you got engine swap.

Since we all are car technicians and that guy over there is a scientist, we put our heads together and came up with an answer... we say eleventy-one hp.

I like the idea of fixing up an older gen celica with awd or buying a subaru as far as the rwd.. The celcia was designed to handle really well the way it is i suspect you go changing it to rwd it is not going to handle as well.. I love RWD but if you take the time to learn FWD's diffrence it can be just as fast
