It's still a lot of work. But, not as much as many people think...

Nice. Pretty good idea.

The top mount that is on this engine will certainly be going. However, I'm not sure about getting rid of the top mount idea completely. I can't stand FMIC lag! If I can manage to mount a large TMIC, I'm doin' it! Even if it means serious hood modification... We'll see though. *shrug*
