With my experience driving in the winter (and living in Northern Ontario, I've had quite a bit), I'd leave it FWD. They handle a lot better in the winter time. What is the set up? I wouldn't go any more than a 3.8 V-6, you can mount them transversally for front wheel drive applications. You can also get some performance parts for them. If you go to a V-8 it produces more torque and is a lot harder to control wheel spin in the winter. Unless you like spinning your tires at EVERY stoplight.
