lol mpower that was a good imaginary description of the insanity into such a project. its better the person concerned looks for a new chassis and preferably have it rear mounted like the beetle. maybe he will have a bank balance then!!!!!!!

haha, good one, Mpower. but a few thoughts;

the crv's power take off is designed to transmit about just 60% of engine torque under max. load. now that would mean that the engine would lose about 40% power JUST in transmission. actual torque at wheels would also go down by another 10-15%. of course, i've never seen an opened up crv transmission or worked on one, so dunno the specifics.

as for N-S engine mountings, the problem lies with the engine mounting bosses itself, not chassis; the E-W mounted engines typically have three mounting points as opposed to 2 for N-S, don't they?

and since we're speaking hi-pathetically...why not bolt on a turbojet at the rear? that would be far more cost-effective (and a li'l faster too)....and we can retain the original front engine; so in net effect we'll get a twin engine AWD....

Once you lock the front diff, its 100% to the rear. I have discussed this with a Getrag engineer and considered doing it
to my Eclipse.
In both cases, its 3-point mounts. 3rd mount on N-S config is under the trans.
The Mid Engine is executable and will yield the most benefits in handling. But it will be a 2 seater.
Ashraf Shaikh had done a mid engine 800 eons ago.

You want some more fun? Simply let the jet engine at the rear drive the rear wheels, & the OHC engine drive the front!
