Wow... what a response. Guess it wasn't as wild a thought as I, uh, thought.
I've considered AWD versions of several cars ever since the Pontiac 6000 STE AWD came out...
Thinking about the exhaust issue, I was thinking that the exhaust could be pulled out of the driveshaft tunnel and that oval exhaust pipe could be used to maintain clearance. I imagine a few supports would need some customizing, and some custom heat shielding.

I was thinking the same thing, as a worst case scenario... When I considered using the F-body rear end setup, I figured I'd need a totalled car to get some spare subframe stuff...
I'm curious about how the transaxle gets set up with a 3 way split? If there an different tailshaft with a little transfer case? Is it set up to put the driveshaft down the middle of the car? Also, how did GM decide where to put the power? Is it a rear bias? I imagine its not.
