im curious about the oil pan clearance as well. also, i understand it comes with custom axles, but was there a reason that you couldnt have just made the kit to work with late cabriolet axles? that way when they break (which im sure someone is gonna do it) we could just get a new axle with out having to find a special one, or have one made, or have to go thru the one place that sells the kit.
Wow so sick that thing haul's ass, new world record?

You have to run custom axles, or notch the passenger frame rail. One or the other. Stock 100mm driver's side axle puts the pulleys inside the frame rail. Short axle allows the whole shebang to be moved over so you don't need to notch.
I notched. I like stock axles.
the pans going to be low on any vr swap.
also, im pretty sure others have done it without modding axles. the only difference is that most people like to not have the motor that far over so itll be a little more balanced(hopefully). its literally a couple of inches.
