    The question at hands is about motor mounts. I wanna get the ORD ones because they can handle high torque and are beefy as hell. The down side is the cost($160 + ride)

    Should I just get some OEM's for now and posibly upgrade later if I NEED to, which I prpbably won't.

    I have nothing against ORD or any of their products,in fact, I think they kick a$$, but i can get some OEM's for like $20 and I am a little strapped for cash right now.

    I read your profile on your engine, and it sounds pretty beefy. I have worn out a couple of sets of stock motor mounts (mostly from wrecking my truck) and they hold up pretty well.

    I would say you have answered your own question though. If you are strapped for cash OEM is probably the better route. This is of course if your motor isn't tearing them up on a quick consistent basis. I have a 300hp crate motor with MSD and highflow dual exhaust, and motor mounts last me a few years minimum.

    If you weren't low on cash then maybe ORD would be the better choice. I am a huge fan of ORD's stuff, but the $ difference is alot. Worst that could happen is that you get some time out of a new set of $20 OEM's and when you are in a little bit better $ situation you can spring for the ORD mounts.

    Hell yeah! I couldn't believe it, I just bought two for mine.

    I need to go home, but I don't want to. My mom is being a total PITA about my '84. I want to get it done!

    Yes they do, and each time you bring them back they give you brand spanking new ones. Me, I don't like replacing motor mounts on a yearly basis. I guess if he/she isn't going to be keeping the truck they are fine, but if she/he is planning on keeping it, I would say spend the extra $$ and not worry about it again. To each his/her own though.
