(i was thinking last night of how much i hate honda's but love my suby)
how about a civic with a full STi drivetrain? i actually think it would be a super cool Hondaru, AWD civic ahahahha.

Why not just stick a K20 into an AWD civic and turbo it? probably easier to do.....

You'd have to do the 25 and make it rwd. The way the motor would have to sit in there would make rigging the awd up next to impossible. If you can't do it in a 240, theres not a chance in hell of doing it with a subaru.
