I was wondering if anyone has tried to swap out with a either 3000gtvr4 drivetrain or the eclipse or eagle talon awd drivetrain? And if would be possible to do so.

At the end of the day anything is possible in the automobile world depending on the level of fabrication one is capable of.  However, there comes a point when it's no longer a "swap" and just a fab job.  Could it be done - probably, but I highly doubt there'd be anything that would bolt up, fit, or otherwise.  If there were, someone on this site would have already done it.

Ive worked on a lot of 1G and 2G talon/eclipse's and ive had my hands in swapping 3-4 cars over to 4G63and some AWD. It definitely can be done if your in the right mindset. It helps to have lots of parts hanging around for options to use. The average joe in his driveway will never get it done but somebody that familiar with multiple platforms and has the eye and imagination can make anything happen.  Ive been involved in a AWD 4g63 hyundai swap, AWD 4g63 avenger swap, and a AWD 4g63 suzuki swift swap. All used modified stock subframes with some creative fab work/hackery. When you look at the big picture sometimes its easier than you think to just adapt a combo of certain stock parts that make fitting stuff easy and have readily available parts support.
