R34 LS1 swap question

Hey all,
I'm looking to swap an LS1 into my R34. Before anybody gets up in arms, it's a non-turbo RWD model, so don't stress about me "ruining a perfectly good RB" etc. My issue is, there's no kits out there that I know of to help with installation. Therefore I'm thinking of using an S14 engine crossmember in order to use the SIKKY or similar mount kit, which should accommodate the oil pan, engine mounts etc. Was just curious as to whether anybody knew whether or not the engine crossmember is a straight swap between the R34 GT and S14 models.
Thanks in advance

I feel like Ryan Gordner would know the answer to this since he LS swapped his R32. Atleast find out what crossmember will bolt in or what mounts to use. Facebook messaged him to check this thread out.

Thanks boys.
Thought it'd be worth putting out there, I got in contact with Fueled Racing over in the US who are pretty popular for their S-chassis LS swap kits. The guy there says that due to pretty rubbish oil pan clearance in the R34 it's a solid plan to use the engine crossmember from an S14 as they actually make a kit to suit R-chassis cars using the S-chassis k frame. They also offer over 60 transmission options that you can special order, meaning they've pretty much got everything you'd realistically need for a straight engine swap. I'll be looking to purchase from them by hopefully January so I'll keep yall posted on how that turns out.

How is ruining a perfectly good rb not "ruining a perfectly good RB"?
This LS bs has gotten too far...

I mean it's an NA version making maybe 150hp and is an absolute pain to turbo, so you know, I'd say it's a reasonable idea.
