My Dad and I built our own 3800 dogbone mount which uses a stock Fiero dogbone. It bolts to the head where WCF's design goes. It is made from 1/4" steel angle and 1/4" flat steel. I will ask Mike Gonzalez to post pics of it since I have issues with the image posting here on Pennocks. It is very strong and will be tested on my 87 GT Fastback. We will rush these into production if there is some interest. I will have installed pics shortly. Thanks.

Wish one could be made for my Formula. The Dog bone was relocated onto the front of my engine to the cradle.

Do you have a 3800 S/C car? If so, this will work. Our dogbone mount kit mounts to the cylinder head between the head and the EGR valve. The other end mounts to the trunk wall.

cool, I am glad to see someone else is making this mount set up. I really want one. I ordered one from WCF about a month ago and have yet to get it. I have email them and called them at least 5 times and nothing, how can anyone do business like that.What is your price, I may just order one from you. Keep up the good work!!!!!

I should have a price together for you in a day or two. Just calculating materials, time, etc. Also this kit will allow you to use your factory 2.8 dogbone. It mounts to the trunk wall with 2 reinforcement plates on each side of that bracket.

Not sure about the brand or origin of the strut tower brace, it was on the car when I bought it.

The dogbone kits will be $140.00 plus shipping. Let me know how many you guys want. Also if you're running the EGR Valve or not. Thanks. Also if you want them painted it will be black or if you want to paint them yourself that's okay too. Thanks for the interest.
