Can you make it run? Almost certainly yes. It may take some small amounts of fabrication, computer reprogramming and harness splicing, but it seems like it is doable, however....

Will it last? Definitely not!

Neither the CVT transmission or AWD system can take the power of the SRT4 engine. I suspect you would blow the transmission in less than a day.

CVT transmissions are crap. Don't ever buy another car with a CVT.

Referring to older JATCO (Nissan) units in class action suit.
I was referring to all CVTs.

Honda may have the best CVTs, but even the best CVTs are not as reliable as average automatic transmissions.

Maybe CVTs will continue to improve and become a reasonable choice, but, for now, they are not.
