PT Cruiser - 3.8 V6 Swap

I've acquired a 2006 PT Cruiser in excellent condition and I abandoned a plan to swap in the Turbo engine and manual swap. I have some new plans that will require the grunt of the V6 weight wise.

Instead I'm going to have some fun and swap a 3.8 EGH and retain the automatic transmission.

I looked into some 3.3 neon swaps and noticed the use of the SRT axles.

Does this mean I will not be needing custom axles? The measurements don't add up. But I digress.

Mother's did a project like this but I can't get detailed info other than needing to be creative with the exhaust manifolds.

It can be done. Axles might be fine stock, you have plenty of other FWD Chryslers to choose from though.
