Wow, that roll restrictor is a dead simple design, I might have to have a go at making one . . .

I moved here from a 99 Cougar, so a 4 banger is new to me and I have had zero time to get in there and see how things are put together. How are the motors held up in these cars? In the Cougar you had a mount on the passenger side of the motor and a mount on the trans on the driver side. The mounts basically let the motor hang in the engine bay. Then you had a roll restrictor in the front and rear to keep the motor from rotating/keep vibrations down. People usually filled the restrictors with poly to do what you're doing here.
