Motormounts

A few years ago I became frustrated with the lack performance-oriented motor mounts for anything that wasn't a 5.0 Mustang. Being into the Ford 2.3 turbocharged motors at the time I started there and developed my first set of mounts for my '84 Cougar XR-7 turbo. It took a little while for the rest of the 2.3T community to find out about them (2-3 years), but since then I have improved the design and expanded my application offerings.

I get asked a lot about why I don't do anything for 5.0 Mustangs as I could sell a lot of them. My response to that is simple. That application is WELL covered and why would I even want to bother? I prefer to offer solutions for the niche or forgotten engines and platforms. To that end I have an odd and expanding mix of applications.

A little bit about the design of the mounts. All types are constructed of laser cut cold-rolled steel and hand-welded. They are finished in a either a powder-coated or zinc-chromate plated finish. The bushings come from my own molds and are offered in 2 different durometers. The ancillary bushing hardware is made from 304 stainless steel. Mount kits come complete and ready to install with all hardware (standard grade 8 or metric 10.9) and installation instructions.
