Hey guys need some help/advice

I am planning on putting a AU front cross member into an EA

From my understanding the AU front cross member is alloy and pretty much fits into the
EA's.

Reasons I want to do this:

1: I can then put the xr6t engine in using original BA engine mounts
2: It will help counteract any weight i add to the car
3: I can use off the shelf BA coil overs ( in the front at least)
4: It will change the offset to AU onwards (want to put the non irs AU back end in too)
5: No need to modify the sump or cross member
6: I want to put the AU rear axle in to change the offset, and have the adjustable
pinion angle to better suit a lowered car

I have the front half of an EA previously gutted from an old project this should allow me to
mess around with fitment without destroying a car.

I understand this is not necessary for an xr6t conversion however I am not just
looking to have an EA with a xr6t engine, I am looking to build an Awesome car.

Having said that any advice or opinions positive or negative will be appreciated but
i would like it to stay mostly around this concept

Thanks bbqburner.

When it gets closer to me doing it I will probably ask that many questions
You'll hate yourself for offering.

Could be a little while I have to find the funds to pour the floor
into a 18m by 9m shed
