It won't pass an engineer. ADR stops that. No go other wise.

How so any pics?
I'd assume it was a Opel unit so if you wanted to you could use one of there units?
Cost a bit though.

A lot of rear structure modifications. Its the main part of the body strength and any mods, weakens it. If you can get an Opel one, maybe.

you can fairly much do anything to a car if an approved engineer is willing to sign it off
I don't see any major issues with IRS being adapted from a later model Commodore. The floor pan on the Commodore never really changed in a major way until VE.

I'm sure you could get it engineered, but it's going to cost some $$.

Can't see it being drastically worse then getting tubs engineered.

Get the ass end sheet metal out of a VP Calais with IRS.
Should almost go straight in.
