Anything will help.
Thx
I've hit the ej2.5L bolted to the transaxle, but need to set hight.
Then it's motor mounts& exhaust decisions.
Like full custom or mate it to the stock boxster?

On my car, the transaxle is about 1" above the cross member.

Won't be over there until 6:30 am my time tomorrow. Sorry. My trans is pulled and I can measure or photo whatever. It's all open right now.

Are you wanting the Boxster measurement?

From brace to axel?
