Now is removing that little black plate/bracket that connects the motor mount to the side wall ok? I can see it for a show car, but if you do any type of performance driving, that bracket gives full side to side support. Some insight on this because if all is good I may remove it
No, I'm talking about the bracket that goes inside the circle:
I may be wrong about its function, but I have a feeling even my aftermarket bsh mount came with one for a reason. Im going to polish mine anyways, and use zinc bolts.
