I got my first turbo AWD DSM back in ’91. I started racing DSMs in the mid-90’s (attended my first DSM shootout in ’96). And I am still playing with DSMs! Needless to say, I am a huge 4G63 fan and love the idea of transplanting these engines into other platforms!This my ’93 Eagle Summit Wagon TSI AWD project.I have been eyeing these wagons for an ultimate sleeper project since the late 90’s! But they were still rather expensive, so I had to wait. Just as their price has come down to a reasonable “beater project” range, it became apparent that there cars are suffering from a major rust problem. Compounding this problem, was the fact that AWD variants were mostly sold in the snow belt, which tends to use plenty of salt during winters. And by their very nature, these wagons were not taken care of very well by their owners. So clean AWD wagons are almost impossible to find.But I got lucky! I found a southern Summit, which has been treated relatively well and didn’t have any signs of being in any serious accidents!Quick Summit/Vista/Expo history:These little cars/wagon/minivans (whatever you want to call it) have been made by Mitsubishi in the 90’s. Mitsu sold them as Expo LRV but at least half of these wagons were sold to Chrysler, where there were rebadged and sold as Plymouth Colt Vista and Eagle Summit. Overseas these wagons have been sold as Mitsubishi RVR.There were several different powertrain (1.8L/2.4L) and drivetrain (AWD/FWD) options, but I am only interested in 5 speed AWD, which only came with 2.4L engine. This AWD system is very similar to what you find in AWD DSMs. In fact, it even uses the same drive gear ratios, so interchanging drivetrain components with DSMs is very easy.Weight wise, they are comparable to the 1G DSMs. In the past, I have heard from several sources that they are around 2800lbs. When I first put my wagon on a scale and it ended up being 3098lbs (without me in it). I had half of tank of fuel and ~30lbs worth of junk in it. After the swap, it tipped the scale at 3016lbs with the same amount of gas. Most weight reduction came from getting rid of: front bumper, AC and a smaller battery. Update: it is now 2900lbs with half a tank and rear bench seat still in. Removing the bench seat, yeilds another 70lbs of weight savings.
