The stock crossmember isn't very stiff front-to-back either. Put it on a couple blocks and push on the center, deflects pretty easily. It appears Porsche didn't worry about that too much, and relied on the trans mount to locate the engine front-to-back. The rear crossmember was used for the weight of the engine, and part of the side-to-side support. It seems the stock crossmembers can fail around the mount sleeves on each end, and looking at how small that connection is, it's a good idea to gusset or double that area. Just like the factory did on Coles's pics. I think what Cole has will do the job.
