I run a torque link with my solid mounts. Don't think that solid mounts don't flex. I promise, they do.

Not sure how it would help 60' time unless your motor mounts were shot. I use the torque link to protect the stock mounts - already busted up one set pretty good.

Hello,

See my thread below about how I installed the Competition Engineering piece for a Foxbody onto a 2V 99GT. It is fairly straightforward if you run a factory K-Member and can weld or have someone fab/weld the second bracket.

I did it for many of the reasons mentioned above. Stops killing motor mounts, intake tube for KB doesn't smack the shock tower and get ripped off, and overall much more solid feel. I'm glad I did it.

I run the Competition Engineering piece on my car and I like it.

I put mine on because I hated the way solid mounts vibrated everything in the car, and I didn't want to tear my new stock mounts up.

I've always had concerns about tieing the move down via the cyclinder head? If the motor wants to twist...do you really want to pull on the head with those hollow dowels??

....I have solid mounts and the motor still moves....not near as much, but its still got some shimmy...
