    It does not matter how big or bad you are, or have 2 guns in your belt, if that guy came running after me in that dress, I would be so gone.:omg: Maybe its just me but that picture gives me the creeps, I do not mean to make fun of the guy, It just scares me:omg:

    Anyway, Free2go you said your mounts look under the weather to, the poly mounts that I just got look very well made, I am happy with the quality, check them out, nice family business. The mounts come with nylon insert lock nuts all good stuff. In the earlier video from Jwolf he had to snap the lower nuts off, if I have to do that to, its nice to have everything you need to keep going.:usa:

    I was amazed at how my tranny mount had almost no rubber left...

    I've been flirting with the idea of buying a four post lift. Until then, I'm not replacing them as they aren't totally destroyed yet.

    Started reading this thread and contributed, trying to be constructive.

    Sadly reading the last few pages, insults to members / owners and ex, members this thread has collapsed :(
    a bit like the engine mounts :(

    Shame.

    Im getting ready to do the Thermostat. Anyone know if you have to remove the intake manifold completely? Cause that Quick fuel disconnect looks like a bitch to get to..Also I can not locate the fuel pump relay/fuse to drain the fuel..It doesn't seem to be located in the main fuse box, unless it is named something different other than fuel pump..LOL.. Im too lazy to look through my service manual..hahahah..

    You can get the thermostat out with out removing the intake, its tight but you can do it, I went to a 180, you should also recal the fan to go on sooner for the full benefit.

    I did not disconnect the fuel line. I just used some wood blocks to hold the manifold up out of the way while replacing the t-stat and cleaning up the manifold mating surfaces. (Been so long that I don't actually remember if anything needed cleaning.)

    These mounts will not last in our vipers with no heat shield on the end of the mount towards the exhaust! I just put a set in last summer from Roe racing and the mechanic I used put my passenger mount in backwards so he heat shield was facing forward and the mount melted right out!! So with no heat shield them mounts won't last!!

    Understand that poly mounts will induce quite a bit of vibration. Great for track cars, just understand about the NVH.
