There is a guy that makes tubular tranny crossmembers for the 94-96 cars that are a LOT easier to work with, not sure about compatibility or maybe you have the resources to fab something.
What headers did you use? I was looking at having band flanges added to truck manifolds since they are held in high regard up to about 1000rwhp, cast iron holds heat well.
I am sure there are a lot more options in the 6 years my car has sat.
yeah were just going to c notch the factory cross member and call it a day
and they are ebay turbo headers. if you run them you might have to do some fab depending on your setup. we had to cut down the right side about 2" so the flanges were even across the front of the engine.
