WE MAKE SERIOUS PONTIAC HORSEPOWER
AND WE KNOW MORE ABOUT BUILDING STOCK PONTIAC ENGINES THAN ANYONE.
Not even a minor hint of any problem has ever been recorded.
I have, (Bruce here) ran solid mounts on every street machine I've owned in the last fifteen years
and even used them on my stock 1967 Catalina station wagon and you could not feel a thing. The recirculating myths about solid mounts have no basis in fact.
We were just told that a current Pontiac engine advertiser warned
one of our engine customers that using solid mounts will transfer harmful
harmonics into the crank and will destroy it.
That's foolish. The amount of ignorance in the Pontiac community is overwhelming to me.
You must be smart. If you have a lot of torque and you can get good traction,
you must tie the engine down.
Otherswise you risk sheet metal damage, trans case breakage, and more.
Depending on the power level you have, we highly reccomend considering
using both options. Use solid mounts & tie the engine down by crafting a strap that bolts
to the drivers cylinder head and reaches down to either the frame or front A-arm bolt.
Pictures coming soon.
