    Default Chuck W Motor Mount Question

    This may be a silly question, but when I took out my effed up turbo I noticed the Passenger side mount mount was askew. I kind of dont remember it going in that way, or I just didnt even take note of the position.

    Here is a picture:




    Let me ask - Chuck is this ok or should I move it, and can I move it ?

    The motor appears to be in level, and not leaning to the passenger side.

    Here is another shot of it, also I got rid of the stock airbox and put in the cone. Since so many mentioned how "restrictive" it was.

    Did you install the additional bolt on that side as per the instructions?

    Without it the lower bracket will pivot a bit. It requires a hole to be drilled, but it is needed.

    With my last batch that went to Motion Dynamics, I have since changed that bracket to reincorporate the stock mounting hole as was done on the driver side and thus no need to drill that extra hole.

    Ok Chuck, I did not drill the hole as I thought that it was optional, but I see it is needed now

    I am going to take it out and drill the hole then. The only thing is I cant seem to find the paper you sent with the mounts. Is that hole to be drilled next to the welded in bolt and goes in the hole where the dimple from the original mount went?

    Thanks Chuck for the reply !

    Drill the hole as far down opposite the stud as you can. There is no set location.
