    Have you checked your engine angle? It should be 3*-3.5* down in the rear, maybe it's just the pics but it looks like the engine is low in the back. I would mock-up the trans and crossmember to see where you're at before I made any hasty decisions.

    I saw the potential AC clearence issues before I did my swap, that's why I pulled the box out on both my swaps. The LS seems to be a wider engine. I also had problems when I did a BBC

    You don't have the Trans hooked up do you? The photos of the motor mounts show it is tilted down at the back quite noticeably so your angle is off. If you have a magnetic angle finder, put a two by four on a jack and lift the back of the engine up to that -3 to 3.5 degrees 71 mentioned and see how that affects anything.

    So funny story, those mounts can't be configured in two ways, and the instructions actually give you the incorrect way to mount them. Got my ls3 on to those mounts scratching my head at 2 am trying to figure out why it wasn't sitting on the mounts right. Little Google action and few curse words later and I was set.

    Care to post the correct way to install the mounts, DMurda?

    Quake, I highly recommend stripping an engine of unnecessary components, accessory components/brackets exhaust manifold etc, before trying to install it for the first time. This is especially true if you're unsure of a component fitting like the accessories or exhaust manifolds. It makes an engine easier to position if there's less weight and less possibility of snagging on a component. Good luck getting everything in.

    I didn't get the sense that the Holley LS engine mounts installed more than one way.

    From their instructions:

    Your right. They only work 1 way. Almost no way to put them on incorrectly.. I got my dirty dingos in. Will post pics later.
