i have been thinking of this for a while and dont see any reason why this cant work... what im hoping to do now is use the engine/trans facing foward like an oem diablo and using a transfer case and having awd.

technically cant you use a transfer case and just not use the what would be the front output? in the replica (technically rear outputfrom whatever car is was takin from)

just for an idea like a 2008 bmw 535xi driveline, very capable of 450hp range. its around 330 stock.

I've been thinking a lot about this myself. I'm definitely going with a BMW V-12 (already bought the car) and mounting the engine in the OEM direction. As I see it, the problem you're going to face with the standard transfer case is that most are set up so that the front wheels only handle about 40% of the load. Since we are using everything in reverse, the output that would normally be going to the front wheels would be used to drive the rear wheels and must handle 100% of the power (if you are going with 2-wheel drive). A lot of the transfer cases use a triplex chain drive to transfer power to the front wheels and our set-up might be too much for the chain.
Just some thoughts. I haven't gotten to the point where I've dug too deep into it yet.

sound like a plan but still have tons of study on the modifying the setup of the car. This is when rocket science comes through the mechanical of the car. Precise measurements and engineering challenges is needed to come up with the kind of setup you want.

Hi, I think an BMW X5 gearbox and transfer box might do the job, this would probably bolt up to the V12 and has the reverse drive out of the transfer box. Nopt sure on the strength side of it but the physical size is about right
