Conversions & Hybrids - Do Edelbrock motor mounts put the Transmission in the stock location
06-19-2011, 01:57 PM
I am looking to by a g force crossmember for my 1980 Trans am and I was wondering if the edelbrock motor mounts that I have will put the trans mission in the stock location. My trans is a 4l80e so I dont want to buy a $300 crossmember and still drill holes. Does anyone here have this set up

Yes, if they are the 1" Set back plates. They would move the engine flange back to where the stock TH350/TH400 bellhousing Flange would meet the engine.

Yeah, 1" setback's. As you view an picture of the plates, the Bottom bolt hole is about 1" forward of the lower / front mounting boss location of the engine.
I use them as a template for my plates that I made from 1/2" alum plates.
