Since you've made your decision, here'* how I handled the mount with SLP'*.

Not sure if the ones you got are identical to SLP'*, probably close. You may want to do a fitment test and see if it'* possible to just cut off the ear like the TOG guys do. Otherwise you might be able to get away with removing the strut piece all together. Other guys with pre95'* would drill a bolt through the center of the metal/rubber section and use that.

I chose a slightly different route and 450ish hp and 4 years later, it'* still holding great.

I got a 92-93 Bonneville front trans mount, the one with just a chunk of rubber and no strut, and I had it welded completely solid. I recommend you do that because that will give you the best clearance. Check out this TOG header install thread:

It doesn't feel any different now. I used to feel the vibrations a little bit, but not too much. Then I set the idle speed a bit higher, from 650-800, and the whole car feels better. I think that should have been the stock idle speed. At 650, even before mods, the low rumble allowed me to observe parts rattling. Now I'm all set.

well ill see what i come up with and post pics, As soon as im done with engineering here im going home and starting the day after, so ill take pics and post a write up. Also ill post pics of the rest of the exhaust at that time, I think you will be surprised...

Im probably going to need a resonator after the header install, what would be the difference in sound from a short cherrybomb to a longer one?RADOMIRTHEGREAT i saw you went with the longest one you could find? personally it would make sense to me to g as short as possible, but you went long because you wanted no to very little rasp at all?

My thinking was from two different ways of thinking about it: 1) I wanted very little rasp, and the stock was good enough but shorter than what I have now, and 2) It'* the same price no matter the length, so why not get the best value?

I really like the Cherry Bomb because it gives me a nice, low rumble. This is always a pleasure to hear versus anything else that V6s do. I don't know much about rasp decreases since the shortest one should still take care of most of it. To me, it'* the rumble at idle and also a slight change to the WOT that make it worth it.

Did that answer the question? I feel I may be going around some important point.
