Maybe I'll try the coding he mentions and see what it does and if it works.

It is interesting, but I fail to understand why people want to run that way - no earthly reason as it will still have the weight and rotational friction of the front driveline components. There's a thread somewhere by some tuning shop that converted a Touring 328 to RWD by removing all the front drive components, including the transfer case, and converting to MT. Cost a bunch to do all that.

Guess MT and RWD is some sort of religious thing...

That was Mission Tuning in SoCal. Looked like quite the headache!

Someone pls try the FDL coding and report back.
I'd love to run my F31 in RDW in the summer and Xdrive in the winter. This would be epic!
