Default 4wd to fwd

my legacy has a fuse holder in the engine bay, when a fuse is inserted the drive train is changed from an all wheel drive to front wheel drive.
Doing this i instantly notice power gain and a better fuel average but i have my doubts. does this in any way spoil my drive train.

I don't think doing for extended periods of time would be good for the car, but I'm not a mechanic. If you want FWD, buy a Honda.

Your car has a 90/10 torque split until the front wheels slip in the first place. Instead of driving the rear wheels/axles/driveshaft with the center differential you are doing it with the ground. You are spinning the same amout of junk with the fuse in or out.
