I decided to go with the infamous bolt through modded mount. I used a 1/2" grade 8 bolt with a rubber washer to help with vibration:





It'* pretty simple and costs a couple bucks for the bolt/washer/lock washer/nut. And I got the rubber washer from the bottom of the strut part of the stock 95 mount. You can buy the cheaper 93 4t60-e mount without the strut since it'* not needed with this mod.
There really isn't much increase in vibration. Maybe a little under load but that'* it.

You don't need a welder for a solid mount. 3 hockey pucks, threaded rod, washers, 4 nuts (including jam nuts) and a spade drill.

I was assuming the OP has a 95 due to his sig.
