the only thing im concerned about is how far back the actual mount is from the bolt holes.. its all hanging at the back and those are small bolts.. i like the idea for sure though

Its not a JZ swap, but an auto to manual swap in my fiji, It may give you ideas or a direction anyway. Its a torsion mount I fabbed up myself to use the oem holes and oem mount just replaced the rubber with a 7/8" torsion tube. It has held up fine so far.

I like that BC, but i dont think that will work using the R154, because the transmission is in the way of the stock mount where it is so much bigger that the stock tranny.

No, by all means, any idea is worth a look. i really like the idea behind it. it gives me something to loo at once i get under my car and start making the mount.

Keep them coming people

I wouldnt do solid motor and solid Trans  mount. You need some give somewhere so you don't crack things when the motor torques.

well i guess since i started this, ill contribute..

this is what i came up with.. i dont have a final picture of angle welded to the car. but i boxed in the ends, and welded nuts to the back side so i can just bolt the mount to it like factory

Posted Image

Posted Image


then i cut the center out of a factory starion mount, drilled 4 holes to bolt to the factroy R154 mount and bolted it to it..

Posted Image

I then bolted the rest of the factory starion mount to the welded angle on the car, and used some thin wire to mock out my mount

Posted Image


then just cut some flat plate and filled in the gaps, you can see i had to bend the ends up slightly to clear the R154 mount, but it worked out great
