hey now! ... my 5.3 GMC might've been an embarrassment down the track (maybe not as embarrassing as blowing an engine ), but it was still loads of fun! and yours is probably way faster than mine.

Hate to keep the cliches going but "glass is half full" my car is in the garage also and not doing much for me...but that will change Regardless of what Huffer says

what kind of loctite are you using?

The have some that is ultra-high strength that you basically have to heat up to be able to loosen it.

look for some loctite 271, 277, or 290.

no prob man. but it sounds as if you have something more serious going on if the engine/drivetrain is shaking that bad.

what kind of engine/trans/etc mounts do you have? poly? solid?
