The subframe will require some additions to mount the motor, inverter and cells. Niel Fraser of 0800 Certz advises:

  • 3mm plate welded to the frame in the front corners and on the towers
  • 38x2.5 wall tube or 38x38x3 RHS (Rectangular Hollow Section)
  • Front batteries to have shear mounts

He also mentions Capital Instruments for speedometer adjustments

See for a vtec motor in a mini subframe.
