sportage 4wd system to Awd type system for turbo.

The question: has anyone rebuild the 4wd system so it can be used as more of a awd system or made changes so in 4 wheel high, I can drive up to speeds of 100mph. I really would like to be able to use it off the line in full boost. I could then shift out I just want the extra launch. What is the most hp that the stock trans and transfer case can handle. I know the front lockers need to be stronger and the plan is to change them from aluminum to steel. Does anyone have info. Right now when everything is back together the motor should make 250hp-300hp(? need to get on dyno and go bigger on injectors 440cc to 550cc) with the planned 15-20psi of boost.(currently at 15psi)

You would need a central diff to go to full time 4WD
