Not sure if you're still curious, Ross, but it looks like the recipe is in here. The only thing I see missing which may or may not be a concern is the all-steel tcase. If memory serves, there's already a guy down under who likes to mess around RWD in his E39A and he specified the all-steel tcase.

1. Weld the center diff (or install a spool, I've seen these available)
2. Disassemble the front axles, insert stubs into gearbox and hubs, discard actual axle
3? Route power through all-steel transfer box

You guys get to ditch the restrictor if you go 2WD? Production classes up here run a 32mm restrictor, open AWD runs 34mm, but 2WD goes wide open.

Hope all is well at your end, mate. Don't be a stranger.

Me and a buddy did this to his vr4 back in 2004. He's still driving it around like this. Performance wise it sucks but its fun to drive. We left his front axles in tact. Not the best option, but definitely the easiest.

Lol, there is that way too, though if it's a manual it's a adapter bellhousing, not plate unless its the rx7 tranny.
