I suspect you don't see many hybrids because the juice often isn't worth the squeeze. It would be much cheaper and simpler to slap a turbo or supercharger onto the existing motor. I recognize that isn't the same characteristic as having an electric motor driving the front wheels from a standstill, but it's something to think about if your goal really is just more power.

Elephant Racing developed their own hybrid system that fits between the engine and transmission. The installation cost is $75k (you read that right), so I'm interested to see where you wind up with your FWD approach.
