I finally did it. Holy crap what a difference. I changed it up a little though, I used a Gr.8 3/4 9 inch bolt instead of threaded rod. All hardware cost me $18.72 + $ 3.50 for pucks. I have noticed alot better throttle response. A must mod for all .


Thanx "TheKaddyKid"

Are you guys talking about the center mount right smack below the front exaust manifold? What about the other two?

And why doesn't Intense make up a few of these as kits?

make a template to center your drill holes, however this is not really crucial


mark...


and drill


put bolt thru


make sure everything is just as thick as the old mount




wrapped in electrical tape just for cosmetic


attach bracket in reverse order



leftovers that i can return to home depot... so about a $13 mod

because you can make one for nothing ($0.00 ) with parts around your home.
it would be hard for Intense to make a mount and make a profit when you can
make it yourself and save some money.

You could use a 1/2 inch rod, thats all the factory studs are. I used a 3/4 bolt....just cause Im the king of overkill.
