My best advice is to modify your chassis to use the stock mounts.

Other than that, we're not going to be much help to you.

If it'* a common application yes, but I haven't heard of anyone using a 3800 for a street rod.

are you running the motor front/rear, or sideways?

if you are running it transverse talk to the fiero guys, there are vendors who make kits to mount it up to the fiero'* cradle. they make work for you with limited modification.

Default mid engine

it sits in my car like it did in the bonneville only 5 foot farther back. There is no cradle, I am putting it into a tube frame. The original motor mounts are curved and don't line up.
