Joe, my thoughts exactly! G5.R is going to be pretty lower with 19" and a drop. So I didn't want to be jacking the car and potentially jacking up the bottom. I put my brothers car on it and it gives you tremendous clearance.

Thanks guys!

Quick update:

Motor mounts

I will say these mounts are very artsy for a factory piece. So I figured they could use some

In this second picture, you can see I replace the nut on the picture above with a ARP chrome molly 12 point. I'm using ARP for the entire project other than the sizes they donít make. I added the cost off all the ARP bolts and was floored, Close to $3,000 in bolts
