V8 PT Cruiser, Should I use a Mustang or Nova suspension?

Newbie to the site but not Hot Roding. If you have looked at a PT Cruiser and NOT THOUGHT how cool it would be to have one with a V8, then you must have Ice Water in your veines. I took an 01, 3 years ago and did just that. I wanted to keep the SLEEPER look, which I did (except for the monster MTs stuffed under the body) and it turned out just as I had visioned. One problem I have is the steering. I read an article in the MOPAR Magazine where the author said that he was doing V8 conversions in California and that he just swopped the front struts from side to side to move the the steering rack to the front to allow for the V8 oil pan. WELL that DON'T work. I know Chassis Works and others make an After Market Mustand & Nova Front suspensions.

Which one should I use? Your thoughts?????????????????
