    ok, that one is an automatic one and can be found here with a litlle variant on design, also the 5s manual AWD can be found in US.

    thanks for the imput on this!!!. as per your diagram and my P5 looks like the US version come allready with the AWD floor channel.
    that helps me a lot!!!!
    thanks...

    people do not get confused or wrong ideas betwen 4WD and AWD
    AWD is all time full traction at the 4 wheels all the time
    4WD is a drive selective with a gear box that switch traction in 4 wheels or 2 wheels ( like a jeep) 2HI-4HI-4LOW
    I'm not a racer, i don't race... I'm a pilot, flying my Jet P5 really close to the ground. !!!!

    I wouldn't recommend using the mazda 4wd components.

    I have had 1x 323 gtx familia 4wd and never, the constant failure of the LSD transfer and all that extra load on the same gearset as you find in your stock p5.

    This is why I only ever owned one, one was enough.

    I owned plenty of ford escort 2 door (we call the ford laser tx3) with familia bpt with g-series fwd

    If they still use the same gearset from the 1990's in our late BJ protege fwd, I'm sure they didn't make an effort to upgrade the 4wd drivetrain from the 1990's to the import BJ 4wd.

    In New Zealand, they have created a bolt on conversion kit to use celica gt4 gearbox and rear diff. Much stronger combination.

    As the fs-de and bpt bolts upto the g-series BJ box, I'm sure the gt4 bell housing and adapter plate should bolt up to the fs-de

    A celica 4WD would be sick.

    Also I think its funny how some of you keep bringing up how old our Mazdas pro5's are, but I own 3 89 240sx's with all combined less rust than this one 2002 BJ wagon I picked up.

    I was just talking about the drive train, I think they look horrible.

    Unless you are hinting that there are more celica swapped Mazda P5's? I would love to see more of this.

    Also if I lived in CA I would just buy an R32 GTR and call it a day.

    Or a import a Stagea and rock the wagon. If I had a few hundred more dollars earlier this year I would be building a 510 Wagon with swapped 280zx suspension and KA24det, with all original mint interior.

    those are almost as bad as hondas around here now, i know of 5 that are winter driven around here plus a few more that are summer toys. With a pop of less than 20k its funny the amount of RHD car driving around here these days.

    As far as the rear end is considered, Subaru wouldn't be as hard as you'd think. The Subaru rear end from a wrx, in design, is very close to a protege. Sub frame is same basic shape as the protege, only with a pumpkin in the center and could be modified to literally bolt in. It's that close. Just like the protege it uses two sets of lateral arms and trailing arms which with the AAC link kit and TSS Fab's Subaru links could give you all the adjustment you'd need. Source Subaru rear coilovers and bolt it in with protege top hats.....

    They are around and I have seen them, its just not a feasible here as it is there. Besides I wouldn't be as afraid to drive it in a country where anyone can get one.

    There are tons of Grey market cars in the mid-atlantic, still grey market isn't where I want to put my money, especially when you see what happened to the owner of SOUSA.

    It says legally titled registered And insured. It's not the r32 that's a problem it's the o so sexy r34. Those are the ones to stay away from if you want it to be legal. The r32 is actually pretty common. Also you're talking about getting a skyline in California, the strictest state on cars, if you do find one its probly one of the grey area ones.

    Also I know its mostly federal laws that effect them but what about the fact that va is a common wealth? I'm pretty sure that changes it a bit. Granted this is all way off topic

    Also I don't need the attention. Talk to anyone who owns one, you will always find people peeking in the windows, taking pictures, racing you or almost hitting you while rubbernecking.

    But on track... It seems everyone has done or is doing wrx/sti swaps into everything. Pretty sure the current Factory5 is based on it. If I came across a wreck'd drivetrain on the cheap I'd heavily consider it.

    long story short,

    if you want an AWD p5... import one from japan and swap all your parts from your mazda including all steering rack and components to go back from right hand drive to left hand drive

    That would be the easiest way, and cheapest.

    The moment you chop up a floor, it is extremely difficult to get the car square again
