Transmission Mount Install - Brace Yourself

How To Install A Polyurethane Transmission Mount

In the quest for lower e.t.'s at the dragstrip, we usually focus on installing horsepower-producing parts or traction-generating bolt-ons, but we pay little attention to making sure the hop-ups are securely held in place. If you've got a 500-horsepower engine held in place with a pair of worn-out and crusty O.E.M. motor mounts, you're going to run into big problems before too long.

The same goes for the transmission. Bolting in a state-of-the-art street/strip transmission with a big stall converter is a great idea, but it should go hand in hand with a new transmission mount. Besides, installing a new tranny mount is super-easy to do, and the cost is inexpensive.

For this Quick Tech feature, we installed a polyurethane mount (PN 3-1108) from Energy Suspension on our Cheap Street Chevelle. The polyurethane design is soft enough for use on the street, but rigid enough to handle harsh driving conditions like drag racing.
