    Allwheel Drive Omni GLH SRT4

    OK cronies. Just wanted to start a thread specifically on the All new Skunkworks 2010 AWD Omni SRT4!(just kidding). I have to start this thread to answer any and all questions on the hatch as it's getting too difficult through emails, PM's, phone calls etc. to keep track of who asked what. I'll start off by adding a link to my photobucket account where you'll see pics and a video. I'll add more pics if someone wants to see something specific. http://s113.photobucket.com/albums/n...%20Omni%20GLH/

    So far the car drives great. Handles great. Nice smooth and quiet suspension. Launches like a rocket! Six 6,000 rpm launches and several around the 2,000 to 3,000 range(clutch smells bad now and it don't work). I really don't know what else to add other than it's not as difficult to do as it sounds and I like it so much that my '84 Charger is getting the AWD treatment, however the hatch will continue to be the test mule. So...check it out and let me know what ya think.

    Also, maybe we can get this to be a sticky or maybe get an all new AWD forum started so we can put our minds together and really get this thing optimized.

    Thanks for documenting everything. This is an awesome project. I wish I could have my old rampage back so I could give it the AWD treatment.

    Man, if you could see the way I was launching it, you'd wonder if there are any weak links in it. I'm really looking forward to my new clutch setup

    Oh man what a setup that would be! BTW, I finally logged on at TD and replied to your PM's. Sorry it took so long to reply. That is one of the reasons for starting this thread.

    Just awesome. Very cool you are willing to share the info. Probably not something I will ever do because my fab skills are seriously lacking but it sure is cool to see! Car must be a riot to drive.

    Do you have a spec sheet for what you used for the conversion?

    +1. Like what you took from the donor and what exactly the donor was.

    A rampage would be easy since it is already leaf-sprung rear.. just use a live axle from a small automobile that you can get a matching gear ratio in.



    I want to know all about the tricks of using the AWD 604 differential carrier with the 5spd ring gear and whatever associated mods that takes.. got pics??

    Hooray this thread!

    Dont push the red button.You hear me?

    The rearend is off of an '01 and later Caravan. The PTU is off a '91 Caravan. I had to use the early PTU as it's got a gear like the Omni allowing me to run the stock speedo cable. For a non-cable driven speedo you could use everything off the '01 van. The driveshaft was shortened by a local 4X4 shop to fit the L-body.
    It was nice to see you and cool to check out your AWD Omni at Turbopalooza!
    Mutual sentiments brutha. It's always good to see the FWD mopar heavy hitters. Inspiration.

    Re: Allwheel Drive Omni GLH SRT4

    You are freaking awesome... That about sums it up I think


    Its crazy to think that some of these cars are 25+ years old and you are the first to do this conversion. I think it makes TMs that much more special because they may not have the popularity but they definitely have the potential to whoop on any other tuner car.



    Hoping to see some more of these conversions done. I know mine will be done this winter! What are your thoughts on the strength of the driveshaft joints???

    Crazy indeed, but when the GODS of FWDmopar say 'it can't be done' and 'its crap, can't handle any power' the masses follow and never take the initiative.. very sad, but great it finally happened.

    It takes lots of extra time and effort during a build project to lay out shots and take pics. I'm glad you put the extra effort in to share what you've done Did any of the 6K launches net you a good 60'? Share!
