Here's a link to some DIY Motor mounts I dug up over on norotors.

Motor Mounts - LS1 FC RX7

These look pretty similar to Hinson's mount. You're on your own on the trans mount though

Hi, there.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for but I wanted to at least make the offer... Ronin Speedworks presently sells the best LS FC mount kit on the market (don't take my word for it, any of the long time swappers on www.norotors.com will tell you the same thing).

Our "supreme" kit which comes with everything needed to mount up your engine and trans retails for $569 (not $1000s) and includes powder coat, engine and trans mounts isolators. We have the only trans mount on the market that interfaces to the tunnel and lets you run the exhaust underneath.

FC LSX Mounting Kit - Supreme

Ronin has spent a great deal of time getting our fitment absolutely perfect (we're on about the 4-5th revision of tweaks) and the fitment required to get this right mighty close in all directions (fore/aft, side to side, and up and down) so you don't want to screw it up. For what it's worth, I'm a decent fabricator as well but I'd never bother making my own kit when something this good was available this inexpensively off-the-shelf. I value my time too highly for that.

Shoot us a line at [email protected] if you have any questions. I debated offering you all the measurements when I first saw this and then decided I simply couldn't given the amount of time and effort we have into this kit.

If it helps knowing who you'll be supporting Ronin is owned and run by three enthusiasts who meet because of swapping RX7s. We're still small but we do make some great product and when the opportunity came up to be title sponsors of the new v8 section on rx7club, well, it had to be us.

Regards.
Joel Payne
