Even though I said I wasn't gonna do it, I put it back in with the transmission bolted to the motor..



That wasn't much fun but it's done.



You know what wasn't fun? OEM MOTOR MOUNTS.

Collin you should have asked, there is a trick to the motor mounts, you loosen the tops up to the last few threads so they wiggle in the mounts, they drop right in then, I had freestyles motor dropped in the bay in less than 20 mins...

I actually put the mounts in then dropped the motor on top of the mounts on the subframe..



The bottom side of the mounts are torqued up good but I am having trouble winding the top bolts down..



What should I do?

I'll buy them from you for free?



Last night I put the oil cooler and oil cooler lines on, installed the alternator, and made a coil mount plate and mounted the coils on the strut tower..
