man, that didn't take you long.....lol. KTS Race Cars who built APE's car told me that my ProFab stuff will do just fine. i had planned on selling them for the BMR unit for a direct replacement, and use the motor mounts in conjunction with a front motor plate. but the owner recommended the best way of containing the motor is with a front and mid plate only. the benefit to this is safety, strength, AND, maximum header clearance. so you may want to consider this. anyone else care to say to the contrary, let us all know.

later,
Dave

We used a PAracing (moly) it stood up to some NASTY torque. It fits fine with the 2455's with (minor) adjustments.

I agree motor plate/mid-plate combo is the way to go for sure.

I have the stock k-member in the car, but I am using an SBC.

go with motor/mid plates......I ditched the stock style motor mounts on my LS1 (01 Camaro), went with plates, and couldn't be happier....
