Thinking of making my own motor mount for the passenger side of my car. I have an LT1 car swapping an LQ4 into it, but that is beside the point. I thought this would be the best place to put this thread because there is obviously a lot of fabrication going on in this section of the forum in the area of the engine bay!
So my question is, has anyone ever made engine mounts similar to this one?
I want to make one with a bushing style mount so that it tucks closer to the engine unlike the stock clamshell mount. The reason for this is so I can squeeze a large downpipe through the stock k member. Possibly will try to make a cheaper plate/bushing setup similar to the way this one is set up, but welded instead.
Possibly buy these inserts and get the correct size pipe to mount them in??
Has anyone made their own similar to what I want to do? Any suggestions on different parts I should use? Specific mounts, how thick of sleeves for the inserts, etc...?
