motormounts and Trans mount... Solid... uhhhh... no...

Still on the soft factory one actually... I may go to a substantially stiffer one, but with the solid subframe mounts and delrin bushings, the ride would becoem pretty rough... think buckboard... I am considering some stiffer ones though to eliminate the movement of the turbo piping as the motor torques over...

You will eventually have to go with solids or musclemounts. With the torque you make it only takes one hard launch and that factory driver's side motor mount will look like a Cuisinart hit it.

Nice build thread. I saw your car over at HPT many moons ago. Corey is a friend of mine and I try to get up there to bust his balls whenever I can.

Gotta love the camo pants! lol

lol, yup, camo pants in the winter and camo shorts in the summer...

Brandi is at the shop right now, or my be, she might be at his house right now waiting on my new trans...

Stop by and light a fire under his butt... lol...

Actually, he's been busy as a cut worm...

Thanks for stopping in... Maybe we'll run into each other at the shop one day...

Woo Hoo...

I just got word from Corey that my new Transmission will be ready at RSG tomorrow.

I'm sure shipping will take a week or so, and then Corey and co will have to remove the old one, fabricate a new/or modify the old crossmember, and take the driveshaft to be modified after they take the necessary measurements.

I had no idea it would be ready so quick... I may be driving Brandi by the 3rd of April or so with all the new bad parts in her...

I had a good laugh and warm thoughts a little while ago... I finished with dinner here on the rig and found an email from my wife... asking me what I thought...

Apparently she has been playing with a picture I sent her before I came out to the rig... The naming of the truck was her idea but I like it... I suppose we'll have to name the trailer Jr. or something...

OMG LMAO... I didn't think of it as Brandi's enhancment... at least not quite like that...

So... she's getting a boob job and tummy tuck and just had a hip replacement...

Yup on the size... from a "a" to a "b... wait a minute, we need to ask Kyle what the cup size is... He skipped a training bra and went straight to outrageous...
