      What is the intake you are using? A custom one off?

      Hey, nice work!

      How come you cut this off:


      The rear urethane trans mounts are prone to breaking apart and only leaving the metal parts intact, with no sign of urethane.

      poly rear/trans mounts will shake the ever loving isht out of you, and your dash... ask me how i know.

      with any diesel, it's important to only run a stock, rubber rear mount. the reason that "they tear" is because they can't handle the vibration from the motor... a solid mount will just make things break... so don't do it.

      front mount i'd run stock as well, i'd only spade the cup back about 1/4".

      but poly inserts for the side mounts, not a terrible idea.

      don't get me wrong... for a laugh, or to make a lady happy it might be fun to throw a rear poly mount in...

      but only for a few minutes.
