everything is possible, but i don't know if the 4x4 system will go in well, but aslong as you know how to wield an angle grinder and a welder in anger you will do ok.

you need tomake sure the oil isn't getting into the water etc, but i would suggest getting it checked over. are you blowing alot of blue smoke from the exhaust.

well, once the key is within the bubble of the car it will be communicating with it. im still weary of locking keys in cars. was easy to get into my older cars if i made the mistake, not so in the newer cars.
