Looks like they did the same on the 110 even though as it uses the LT230... custom mount bolted to the trans adaptor

Great idea to put that heat deflecting fabric around the engine mount rubber... I should consider that the next time I change them.

OE. Looks like they moved the engine/drivetrain back quite a bit and more to the center. Exactly what avoided.

I noticed that too and was wondering why. I did it for my Toy HP front axle build but mainly for the reason if I ever sold them I could market to RHD guys as well :D

Didn't know TD5 front axles were setup for both. Learn something every day.

Been thinking about exhaust manifolds again... rather like the look of these L99/LS3 headers but as we know the engine needs to move towards the centre of the truck to make them or the standard factory ones fit.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevy-LS3-L9...22f2fc&vxp=mtr

Liked the looks of these new mounts from Daves Customs and got me thinking about making up a custom set for my truck...

http://shop.davescustomsunlimited.co...ts-p/lsemk.htm

So, question is.... if I leave the trans mounted on the OE mounts, would it matter too much if it all sat a bit off square to the frame with the engine on center ?

LT230 may hit the crossmember on 110. LT230 shifter won't line up with tunnel. Drivelines have to be replaced. Why do you insist on making way more work for yourself? Are you building the Winchester mansion?

Not sure what you mean, all I was thinking about was moving the engine over sideways to use a pair of stock manifolds, just thinking out loud.... Esp if there cheap from the local pick-a-part

Why do I make more work... cause I enjoy the challenge.... if I didn't have the D100, I'd have a custom rock crawler.... Have a great Christmas !

I have a custom rockcrawler. Packaging is sometimes even harder. In fact, on mine, I have a LQ4 with a corvette manifold on one side, and a truck manifold mounted backwards on the other for clearance. The 'y' pipe runs in front of the oil pan.

The Hookers are $300 and maintain original driveline. I think what you might save using OEM manifolds will be lost in the long run.
