I remember reading about that when I did some research on the RSR drift tC

I'm curious as to what the exact differences are. Do you have a link to that article on the RSR Tc?

I figured that, but mentioning the AWD system makes it sound like the same relationship between the old Evo's and our Mirage.

No they're not.
The Matrix is a Corolla [E chassis], the Caldina is a T chassis.
Common misconception.

the Caldina gt-4 has the most powerful stock 3s-gte...sad, really...but the turbo is one piece with the exhaust manifold so it's not backward compatible...celicas are really rare over here, but for some reason Caldinas are abundant...

Let go over to the Scion forums and ask them what it takes to make the TC awd and see if they tell us to just buy an alltrac. :)
