    Well, I gave up my quest for the DIY stiffy. After getting all the parts I was looking for I realized that I was about 90 bucks into this 'project' and I hadn't even started fabbing anything...then I remembered that the ebay Ultra Motor mounts were less the 90.00 I just put into parts.

    So, I said "fuck it!", I'll try the Ultra mounts....worst case I'll just put my old mounts back in if they suck...so far they're "OK"...the good news is they sure make my GTO feel like a muscle car! THE bad news is they make my GTO feel and sound like a muscle car, buzzy, rattling and vibrating...I'm still deciding on keep em' in the car or not.

    that's usually the way it goes for me. I'll be out $120 for an $80 part I could've bought. There's a reason solid mounts and plates and stuff are used mostly on race cars.....they'll rattle the knobs off of your radio. I would never run solid mounts on something I spent much time in. The lsx motors aren't known for their smooth idle to begin with.
