2WD Auto to D/R 4WD 5 -speed swap questions
Posted 02 August 2005 - 12:30 PM
Anyway, the wagon is a 2WD auto (pretty sure its 3AT not 4EAT), and I’m thinking about swapping in the 4WD D/R 5-speed drivetrain from the ’86 turbo coupe. The mechanicals don’t worry me any. But what about the wiring, is the main harness the same? Any cutting and splicing required, or is it sub harness plug and play? I’d be swapping the gauge cluster too, so going form the digi-dash to the analog, issues?

I guess I could just swap in the 4WD mechanicals, but I hate to do stuff half-a$$ed, the idea of leaving the 2WD auto dash in there make the swap much less appealing and I just don’t have the time or energy for the full harness swap. This car is just gonna be a driver for my kid, maybe its stays 2WD auto if I buy it. Bummer.
