One big thing would probably be cost.... and I would assume design as well... But I agree it would be sweet as hell..

I'm sure cost and component packaging played a huge role. Also GM doesn't have any similar sized vehicles with AWD, so not part bin usage like the SS/SC.

not only would it not be cost effective but it would be heavy as hell ans slow the car down.

I cant beleve this is even a topic!

the Delta platform is in NO way, shape, or form a AWD platform.

the chasis(sp?) set up wont allow for such things as a 2nd diff in the front, transfer case or a AWD compatilbe trans...

i dont even think GM USA has a manual AWD do-able trans.....

i am not going to do the mod i was wanting opinions if you would want this setup or not

and 06black youre right the whole car would have to be redesigned
and there is defineately no room at all for this stuff,

could it have been designed this way though?

shit...any thing can be "Designed" in to a car but AWD wasent in our case.

the extra weight on our unibody would kill it let alone a WHOLE 100% re design of 99% of the car would be needed
