Bell housing on transmission is a performance automatic and is Sfi rated

Solid engine mounts are fine. We dont run solid trans mounts. Always used a poly mount on the trans.

If it is all solid and it cant move and alignment is good, how can anything break?

Interesting. I only have a 8.5 cert and run solid engine and trans mounts with no issue....then again it is on a small 26x8.5 tire so it is not seeing a huge torsional force on launch, but it is taking all of the power after 100 feet with no issues going on 3 full seasons. Maybe I am lucky, who knows.
