Re: Why not AWD

In my opinion the biggest hurdle is to clearance the K-frame for the PTU shaft and get the steering rack out of the way. Once that is done...it's just getting the rear driveline mounted.

The Pacifica PTU is very different from the van unit. The van unit places the output about 4" BELOW the CV axle center line. The Pacifica unit places the output shaft about 6" ABOVE the CV axle center line. The other difference is that the Pacifica unit does not protrude towards the engine block at all, thus there is more clearance between the engine and the unit.

Now, I have NOT tried to bolt the thing to a 2.2/2.5 block/tranny yet. So, I don't know about how the starter might be affected, which is my biggest concern. For keeping the engine in the stock mounting orientation I don't think that the raised output is that big of a deal, but I plan to rotate my whole driveline up front to a more vertical orientation for several reasons and this is going to put the output shaft flange at an angle that I'm not sure how it's going to affect the CV joint on the end of the driveshaft. If I decide to keep with this route for my 4-banger car I might have some more work to do.

Re: Why not AWD

While I have seen countless AWD vans in the yard, I have never seen one of the "newer" style AWD vans from 2001+ or something like that where the rear end supposedly changed to be more like what the Pacifica has.
