So you're going to use cefiro steering column too?
I'm doing a similar thing to you at the moment

S13 or cefiro etc - will probs have to move the seat back etc cos you can guarantee its gonna be longer into the car.

Slotted the factory mount holes on the x member and cut a little out of the mount plates to clear the chassis and it bolted into the original holes - 120Y B210 bolt up on outside of chassis rail.

Only thing im slightly worried about is the xmember sits lower than the standard one meaning the sump is very close to the ground - nothing a dry sump wont fix
