I doubt this is even possible without having to do some real expensive modification to the entire drive train.

I suggest going into the dealer and picking up a new one that comes with AWD instead of modding it.

Yeap it is possible but would cost you a fortune. Better get the new g37x coupe.

A shop did and they swaped an rb26 and the full r34 gtr drive train into one.

It cost more tham 60k i think and to top it off they made it look riced out by adding a wing on top of the stock spoiler .

Go get a g37x but dont expect to get a manual or even the 7sp or paddle shifters for that mater.

I though the new awd coupes came standard with the 7sp auto. Now the paddle shifters may or may not be another issue. Dealers do have the paddle shifter kit for the 07 and 08 sedans, which maybe would fit the coupes, not sure if there are any real differences there as far as the instrument pods. The paddle shifters on the coupe sure look the same as the ones I have on my 08 xs.

From Infiniti's web site for the G37 Coupe AWD:

330-hp 3.7-liter V6 engine with VVEL Technology Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) for intake valves improves performance, emissions and fuel efficiency 7-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode and Downshift Rev Matching Close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission with short-throw shifter

May be incorrect, but they list it this way when you select 'build a vehicle'. I don't see a Sport package however which is why you may have to get the paddle shifters from a dealer. Appear to be readily available if the ones for the 2007/2008 are the same.

Dam i was hoping that i could have bought a cheap 03 04 g35 coupe and got a salvage g35x and done some swapping that's really a let down cause to buy a g37 is WAY out of my budget cause i was looking to spend like 15K for both. Plus i do not like 4 door cars

Note that we have been speaking of a new 2009 G37 AWD coupe. I have a 2008 xs sedan and really like it. I also liked the coupe with one exception that pretty much killed the idea. That is the back seat. Not often, but often enough I do carry people in the back seat. While I am not all that tall and I did find that back seat had enough leg room, I found that I could not sit there for long with my head against the back window. Another inch or two and just maybe I would have gotten one, but then I really wanted awd at the time and at the time the sedan was the only way to go. If I was buying now then just maybe the new AWD coupe would have persuaded me that I didn't need any back seat passengers.

I remember reading in Sport Compact last year of a guy who had done an AWD conversion in his coupe. They used the front drivetrain from a sedan and had to modify a lot of stuff to get it to work. I'd google it but I'm at work and don't have the time.

As an auto Mechanic I can tell you that a 2003-2008 Z or G if you'd want to change it to a AWD what you would only need is the same years g35 x engine with the front end as far as Spindles, and Axles. You'll never need to touch the rear because the transfer case is built into the engine itself. I had planned to do it to my own 03 Z, and a customers g35 coupe when he kept blowing engines from his SC, but nothing came of that idea thus far.

now that I have time, and $ I've been rethinking this project lately.

Hi Dr. VENUE, did you ever get around to this?

This vaydor (g35 coupe) used a transfer case as well:
