As far as I know, if your pan is an original IRS pan, you don't have to do anything to the frame horns. They already have the necessary clearance for T181 flanges. Only the swing axle frame horns need to be clearanced when they are converted to IRS.

1cm to 1.5 cm

Alex,

I had the same problem when I converted my pan over to IRS.
I moded the frame about 1 to 1.5 cm from the bottom of the tranny flange to the frame horn.
I have the 72-901 tranny but I am using the 1969 901 tranny flanges cause they have the same bolt pattern as the stock VW.
No matter what you type of flange you uce this should be enough room fot you.
