Turbo Ghia RWD 6 Speed Manual conversion

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,


I'm thinking about Converting My 2009 Turbo Ghia to RWD and manual. Yes, yes before I'm told its a waste of time and money, I fill you in.


I owned a RWD Terri from 2005 to 2010, I then traded it.


I have owned this car since 2010, pretty stock but has flash tune (240 kw atw) and had planned to trade it in 2015 but a cant find a better tow vechile for hauling around race cars on trailers. Great for safe overtaking, comfy, in good nick and I still love it today. But I also want something that's a bit more fun to drive when not towing and the RWD one I had for what ever reason just handled better. I never drive offroad with it. Also know I could maybe buy a RWD Ghia and transplant but I know this car and still would want it manual.


I have had a bit of a search around the web for info but still have a couple of questions.


1. Are the front k frame suspension assembellies swapable between the RWD and AWD?


2. Did the RWD ever have DSC and is this going cause issues? ( I know my 2005 RWD didn't)


3. Has anyone done a manual conversion?


Think I can nut out the rest, just trying to find the pit falls.


Thanks in advance...
