Bolt out front crossmember

Post by turboanthoni » Sun Jun 11, 2017 4:37 pm

I seen this in a topic but not sure it was here and someone who had cut the crosmember under the oilpan and plated and replaced with a tubular bolt in piece .
Someone or anyone have an idea who it was ? Tia

Ive seen it done..

Was considering it for my swap but it will make things more complicated for me.

Why do this? Can you remove the oil pan from the car, keeping the engine in there? That would be cool.
