Hey guys, at the end of last year I did a blowout sale on my brandX mounts and got rid of all of them. I have recently had some more interest in getting new sets in. I am now taking pre orders for more sets. I will be placing an order with my machine shop soon. If you order now I can get them shipped to your door for $325. Regular price is $350, once I get the units in hand. Let me know if you are interested, and I will hopefully have them in hand by the end of April. Plan for your spring/summer project now and save some money!

Yes as long as its series II and between 1996 and 2003 and didnt come out of a bonneville or riviera. Grand Prix and Regal seem to be the most common, and although the bonneville and riviera's can be used, you have to buy a bunch of Grand Prix components to do your swap.

Will the mounts work on a 88? What is the difference in mounting a Series 2 and Series 3 engine?

Yes, these will work perfect on an 88. They will mount on a series 3 engine the same, as long as you use a 65eHD from a series 2.

Help me here, as I am new the engine swapping. What is a 65eHD? Is it a automatic transmission? I planned on using the Getrag 5 speed.

With the getrag you can use the Fiero mounts on the transmission side, and all you will need is the mount for the block to cradle on the engine side. I am unsure if the brandX block side mount will work, as I have yet to do a getrag swap. I end up talking my customers into going automatic (65eHD) because most of them want to do mods down the road. The getrag is a good transmission for a driver car, making less than 300 crank hp, but for a car that sees the track its not a good idea. The getrags are getting to the age where they just cant handle the torque of the L67. Now I have heard from a customer of mine that has a low 11 second Ford Probe, the Probe guys are using the F40 transmission from the G6, and with some bronzed bushings, and some cryo treating are seeing 700 hp reliably. Pretty impressive.

They are poly mounts with correct trans/engine mount to mount the 3800SC/65E....
