  • Motor Mounts with CF airbox

    The guys out there that have the CF Airbox, What are you guys using for motor mounts? How are you avoiding the hood rubbing on the airbox? Im using the urethane mounts but im having a tough time adjusting the height on the driver side mount, Is there something simpler?:lostme:

    Thanks

    I have stock mounts with CF airbox and the box rubs on the hood LINING but not the hood so I just cut out the square where it was rubbing. Rather have an ugly spot on the insulation than the airbox.

        I just gave the hood reinforcement a little love tap with a mallet. Backwoods? Yes. Effective, barely noticable, free? Yes.

              IIRC Irelands urethane mounts lower the motor a 1/4''

                That's what it says on their website but I just talked to Jeff Ireland today and he said they are marginally lower uninstalled, but because the stock ones compress and theirs don't, it comes out very close in the end.

                  I made my mounts 74mm high and they compress next to nothing.
                  can't comment on the airbox, cos I have a very large early type and that doesn't clear the bonnet at all. I cut a whole section out of the frame

                  Goodbye M3, you served me well.

                    They way I see it is I'd rather give the hood a little clearancing before moving the engine around. Consider also that you may run into clearance problems with the master cylinder if you try to lower it.

                    I would not take the engine out of alignment with different mounts to fix the problem.

                      I have the 740 mounts and I don't have any issues. No rubbing on the hood or the master cylinder.

                      I have the type 2 large runner box from John.
