Re: 2.3 turbo festiva

If your hip on the body style or somthing, you could probably cut and paste on some suzuki sidekick or geo tracker suspension. Would take some custom work but would turn out pretty neat.

Re: 2.3 turbo festiva

You could do that too. I was just thinking what you wanted was a rwd.

Re: 2.3 turbo festiva

if youre going to be RWD then you want to use a motor that was made for RWD.
i mean, i dont know how much money/effort you want to put into this, but that'd make things a bit easier for you.

maybe look into the b6t from the 323 GTX, it was all wheel drive, maybe you could disengage the front wheels of it

Re: 2.3 turbo festiva

I am getting ready to turn my 88 Festiva into a RWD badass machine. I have a 2.3 turbo engine for it and plan on making it a wheelie machine! Let me know if you finished your car and what front suspention you used. I would love to see pics.

Re: 2.3 turbo festiva

I have '96 Festiva Trio, and was told that the best thing to do to them to have loads of fun would be to drop in a Toyota Starlet GT motor. They are turboed and workedd properly can give you about 110kw to the front wheels, which is pretty good for a car that only has about 48kw stock. i'm also ooking for "Demon" pack for mine if anyone knows where and/or how i can get one please let me know
