I want to use two of these speakers to make a portable speaker. I was wondering what volume or dimensions i should make the enclosure and should I separate the drivers by putting a divider in the middle? this willl be ported
I would recommend an enclosure with external dimensions of 6"H x 17"W x 8"D using 1/2" thick material. Two 1" diameter, 4" long ports will tune the enclosure to about 50 Hz. This is assuming two speakers per enclosure. You do not have to add a divider, but a brace or two can't hurt.

Can you wire one of theses speakers directly to a amp without anything between it. But have it crossed over on the amp at 80z with a sub? Or will it sound bad at higher frequencys?
These can be used full range without a problem and a high pass at 80 Hz is recommended if you have a subwoofer.

If I used this in a full range project would I need a crossover so the speaker won't get ruined from the lower frequencys?
This depends on a lot of things. In the recommended enclosures, this driver will handle full RMS power down to 50 Hz without excursion problems. If this is going to be used in a home theater application, I would recommend crossing them around 80-100 Hz on the low end.

Would this work in a full range project? what size should the enclosure be and what dimensions should I use for the port? and what freq should I tune the box for? Thanks
I would recommend a 0.165 cubic foot enclosure with a 1" diameter, 3" long port for a tuning frequency of 57 Hz.

Pontiac G8 application for center dash replacement
I have a Pontiac G8 with a center dash speaker I believe is a 4ohm job, but Im concerned about dropping a 8 ohmer in there and what that would do to the system. Most of the 9 speakers are 2ohm and I just replaced the 4 door speakers with 4 ohmers. Other G8 owners have said this causes the center dash speaker to overdrive and becomes too loud because of the change. They suggest putting a 4 ohm 10W resistor on the center speaker to balance out this problem. What effect would an 8 ohmer have if I used it to replace the center 4ohm factory speaker? would I still need to use a resistor? The bass response of this speaker is a plus with the system I have and I would like to use it. any thoughts out there on this?
I wouldn't worry about resistors and the such. There is a 4 ohm version of this speaker, PE 290-208.
