The problem is not with the mount bushins its with the bracket and tranny housing material. i have made a solid dog bone mount and then you break the bracket and i know if you make a stronger bracket the next weak part is the belhousing. Im sorry i hav eno intentions of making a stonger bellhousing. I have designed a bracket that attaches to the stock location on the k member and wraps around and attatchs to several location on the bolts for the block and bellhousing. But people around me want crazy amounts of money just to cut me the parts out of steel. not even to weld anything or make the bracket. just to cut me the metal so i can weld it together.

I know a guy that owns a massively huge machining and mass production business locally, he does international sales and is a major corporation. He runs some smaller business endeavors under the same roof utilizing the machining systems hge already owns....

check out Worldwidewaterjet.com and get in touch with him for a quote. He's a very stand-up guy and doesn't price gouge, so yu can rest assured that his price is FAIR for what you're looking to have made up.
