Bought a talon today and the guy told me that the transfer case had a bolt you could remove to make the 2wd. Can anyone tell me any more on this? how strong are they? what do they come in? do they even exist?

Unless you have the switchable gearbox as well the transfer is useless on it's own.

^^ it can be used with a welded center diff and is useful when you want to tow the car without needing a flatbed.

True, but if he doesn't have a welded centre and thinks that the car will run fine in 2wd with the transfer unlocked then he is going to have trouble.

The switchable t-case came paired with a lockable centre diff in the gearbox on very early (87, possibly 88) JDM vr4's.

or a matching switchable gearbox.

It's no stronger than a stock t-case - if it is an all alloy case (like the rest of the early jdm vr4's) it's a weak p.o.s.

Steel head t-cases ftw.
