    ive never heard of cutting the front crossmember.
    yes, you will have to dent the lip down on the rear crossmember, you do this before you put the engine in. put the motor mount on the rail where it should be sitting at, then place the bracket on there, mark the width of the bracket on the rail, and smack the lip down. if you dont do it before you put the motor in, you will regret it.

    and just buy the correct shift linkage, you dont wanna be under that car 40 times just to keep checking to see if you linkage is correct, believe me, you will be much happier with the quickness and ease of buying the linkage.
