highly doubtful, and if so, will probably cost multiple thousands of dollars.

YOU FOOLS!

Well my twin supercharged triple turboed VQ30 finally broke in the Maxima at around 1800 whp on the stock bottom end (supra what? lol). So I've been working on an ATTESA E-TS drivetrain swap from an R34 Skyline complete with the RB26DETT. And you know what? It bolts right in!

Gotta love Nissan interchangability. Volkswagen what?

you forgot to mention the extra boost the downforce from your custom Aluminum Quadrouple Deck Wing adds.
And How much cooler your engine is with your new hood scoop.
I bet if u add one of those mufflers from ebay u will get an extra 100-400 hp gain. If u want the link let me know.

It's very hard to say at this point since it's only found in the near 4000 pound 2005 RL. We would have a better idea if it was offered on the TSX or Accord.

looks like it adds another 900lbs to the car. That rear end looked as big as a transmission.

It strikes me as too many more parts that can fail...

4WD is like a fat guy at the track. To go fast he has to work a lot harder because he's carrying around all that extra weight.
Given equal hp and normal driving conditions , FWD or RWD would be my choice.

For my 2 cents, only when you're racing at WRC speeds or driving in low traction conditions like deep snow would 4WD be useful.

Its possible it will find its way into the accord, I guarantee we will see it in the TL in the next few years....cause the biggest complaint with the TL is torque steer, its not as prevalant in our cars....but if the car makers keep raising the hp to one up other makes/models then I think the awd system will be another card for honda to play............

how bout they just fix the torque steer instead. GM has 300hp/tq FWD cars with hardly any torque steer. AWD is not the solution to torque steer. FIXING the FWD setup is. The rumored "TL-X" will be slower thanks to all of the extra weight and drivetrain parasitics. And it probably won't have a 6MT either. I bet it'll be auto only. A FWD TL 6MT would lay waste to an auto SH-AWD one.
