3 things you might want to consider before doing the Conversion:

- invalidating your powertrain warranty
- the need to recalibrate the car computer to adjust to completely different awd system (you want LSD in the center and rear locking right?)
- the price of the effort, parts and labor, maybe around 15%-20% of what your murano is worth.

Why would you want full time AWD? It uses more fuel and will have negligible effect on your handling unless you are really taking it crazy out there.

I am very happy with the pseudo AWD system the Murano has. The automatic AWD has become a standard in most crossovers nowadays.

For your info if you want a more performance oriented AWD, the FX has a more appropriate system relative to the Murano - default RWD but AWD is switched on during every acceleration from stop and turned off if slippage is not detected.
