BMR driveshaft loop question

Bo White's thread made me review which loop I might want and as I already have most of the BMR line, I was headed in that direction, but need some clarification. In the sales literature it says:

Quote:
BMR’s DSL015 Driveshaft Safety Loop bolts-on using OE mounting holes from the factory transmission crossmember.
But in the installation instructions there is call for:
Quote:
7. Mark the cross-member for drilling using
the 3/8”mounting holes as a guide.

8. Remove the BMR mounting bracket and
drill the two holes into the factory crossmember
So is it using existing holes or is it requiring me to drill a couple?

I use the Metco Driveshaft Loop. No drilling required, it bolts right in.

I bought a BMR but had to return it because it wouldn't fit. Neither one of there's would fit my V6 Auto. Which is odd because my crossmember is stamped V6 Auto and V8 Auto, so I assume it's the exact same crossmember as the L99 cars.

That metco one looks promising I might have to try that one.

There is a difference between the V8 auto and manual cross members. Make sure you order the right loop.

Yeah I ordered for the auto. The one with the spacers. I went back and forth with T.C. with pictures, he didn't know why it wouldn't fit but it didn't. The manual version definitely wouldn't work. They finally just had to refund my money.

They did the same with mine but I kept the part and made it work. It only uses 3 bolts, 2 on top and the one in the back has quite a few spacers on it. Not the prettiest thing, but it will hold.
