My bad . I forgot this is a Regal GS motor, so it would be a W body mount

I got the 4300 out to get the L67 in the air to mess with the passenger side mount (on E-bodies this would be the front-passenger mount, I guess)



I'll do what I can to explain this one...on the left is the stock Reatta (E body) mount and right is the W-body mount that came attached to the L67. On the Reatta mount, notice the 3 holes in a V-formation...these bolt to the block. The rest of the assembly holds the compressor.

Now, to the W body mount...um, I forgot how to explain it well and I'm too beat to go back outside and look :P . But the L67 has the same 3 holes in the V formation as the LN3 block, though the W body mount does not use the 3rd (top, farthest to the left) bolt hole of the V formation. Meaning, the LN3 bracket fits perfectly fine to the L67 and is in the same place it was [/i]

I also removed my engine cradle, breaking 3 bolts in the process. Mounts were shot anyway

There isn't much info on this except for Getrag 5 speeds, but can I expect my motor to put down more HP at the wheels?

-walks up to a few dudes in a Bonneville with the doors open peering over a laptop calibrating the PCM- "I can set my shift points on the fly with this device called a manual transmission..."

From all of my expierence and all the people I have ever bench raced with or raced with for that matter. The saying is that a stick is always quicker than an automatic. I have a feeling your gear raito is going to be much better also. Good work on this post I have enjoyed the reading.
