Fixing the VQ mount

After discovering the mysterious engine shift, I’ve been trying to come up with the best fix. The lack of hockey pucks put a serious damper on brand new mounts. Combined with my laziness I decided to give fixing the current ones a try.

Some cutting and grinding allowed me to shorten the driver side mounts by ~0.05″ (claimed thickness of the cutoff wheel). This still leaves 50tho out of alignment at the crank pulley, which I will have to eat because the headers are starting to find their way into the steering shaft (not to mention that there is literally 10tho between the valve cover and brake booster.) Considering how much the engine can shake during operation, I’m actually quite worried about header contact with the steering shaft. Maybe hockey puck mounts are necessary after all…
