    Motor mount ?

    I have never done motor mounts on a GM and will be doing mine tonight on my 1999 Pontiac TA, I will be installing prothane poly mounts. My question is I see a lot of people talking about drilling them out etc, do the mounts come out as a whole or do they need to be drilled out in the car any help would be greatly appreciated so I can sorta see what I will have to do before diving in. I am doing a header install and full exhaust at the same time so I should have a lil more room. Plus the car just sits in the garage so I can take my time a little each day! thanks everyone for your help

    Well the motor mounts that you bought or have bought are replacing the stock rubber ones INSIDE of the clam shell. You must remove the mounts to drill them out. The clam shell is rivited together and must be drilled out. The mounts I bought came with bolts to put the clam shell back together. To make your life easier remove the manifolds and stock exhaust first. Then do one motor mount at a time remembering how then were on the car so you don't have to take them apart twice like I did.

    Much easier with the headers out of the way, I cant see how anyone could ever do them with the headers in place!

    I did my passenger side with the headers in and it sucked. For the drivers side i finally got pissed and removed the header. Night and day. I should have done them when i put the headers in. So now i am just another idiot that did something twice who warns others of my mistake
