      I should imagine the limited amount of space and how far you can actually move it you probably won't feel any benefit for the work involved

        Steering rack / steering arms are the biggest obstacle

                Moving the Engine down and back is pretty simple. But like mentioned. You then run into two issues. Shaft to CV angle. Steering rack will then crash into the bell housing so you will need to cut it and weld it.

                I've done all of the above and its night and day different but the price for the CV joints is enough to put most off!
