Default Swap 92 Gs motor for Turbo AWD?

so im looking into getting a turbo AWD motor with the 5 spd AWD transmission with it. right now i have a 92 gs needing a new head and valves and it will end up costing me a good bit as i cant find a 2.0 DOHC head in my area for under $350. so i figured id check into motors and i came across this one below. im wondering what else id have to go to put this in my car. any lines or extra stuff id need? any help would be great! thx in advance.

Link for motor below.

You will basically need a whole donor car if you want to swap to AWD. You will need the axles, tranny, t-case, driveshaft, rear diff. Basically everything. So unless you can find one at a junkyard with everything still entact, its not worth it. Your better off sticking with FWD.

To convert a 1g fwd to an awd requires alot of fabing and pretty much a complete donor awd to do it. Its nothing like doing it to a 2g.
