Cutting the framerail out like that allowed me to retain the a/c compressor of the 3800 motor, as well as stock serpentine length for ease in parts replacement. Now, I've put on about 6 or 7 thousand miles since the project, and experienced no problems with it as of yet. it's heavily reinforced and I retained the rib inside as you can see, you can see where the coil spring runs in the pics too.

 

 

Do you guys think it's OK, or should I consider some more reinforcements? like i said, it's worked so far. obviously it doesn't any longer have the impact rating etc. it used to in case of an accident....but :dunno:
