    I am ready to pull the trigger on some engine mounts, but I need some confirmation I'm ordering the right parts before I go ahead.

    I am planning on using 2-1/8" headers on my BB, and the only info I can find is using Energy's 3.1114 mounts, swapping in 1971 frame mounts, or using the original mounts.

    Obviously I'd like to use poly mounts for the strength and longevity, so I'd like to know what parts everyone is using so I wont have any issues.

    I used the clam shell poly mounts when I installed mine.

    I run Moroso 62515 on the engine and 62630 on the frame, worked out great with big tube headers.

    I guess I am drawing a blank on NVH? if you are referring to vibration that is not bad in the car.

    I used the stock engine side mounts from my 73,307
    There are multiple holes in the frame for the clam shell mounts,I think this is because of the 6 cylinder engines that could come in them.
    Make sure your clam shell mounts are in the correct holes

    I used OEM replacement frame-side mounts (about $5 each from anywhere) and the stock truck motor-side shells on my 454. It sits kinda high, but the hooker super comp headers fit good (had to trim a little off one motor-side mount) and it clears the giant truck oil pan. It also tucked those big super comps right up under the floor nice (lowered car, so clearance is an issue).

    My only issue is that I cannot fit anything but a bone stock iron intake on top with the stock air induction hood. Even so it still rubs. I'm trying to figure that one out now...
