    So this is how i did my 500 mounts. Does this look like it will be strong enough? I used 2x2 squar tube that was not quite .25 thick. and the end plates that bolt to the frame are .25 thick. The motor is stock so im not pullin bid numbers but do you think this setup will hold?

    Thats pretty close to what I'm doing for my caddy swap (if I ever get time). As far as strength goes I don't think you'll have problems Someone else did this swap into a fox body mustang and sprayed the hell out of it (275hp shot) running a mount similar to your mount that was made from chromemolloy tube (1.5 inch dia)and he didn't have any problems with the mount.
