Weapons Grade CNC Mounts

Saw this on their instagram this week... looks like they've finished 3D printing their new motor mounts. Supposedly will allow the oem GTO oil pan to be used which will lower the price of their kits for those interested. Also allows better clearance to full size starters on LS3 and the other larger displacement LS'.

since youre saying that these mounts allow the use of the GTO oil pan, does this also mean that the heater hoses will not be affected on the firewall and that they can be hooked up correctly for heat and A/C?

Yes. They supply fittings and hoses to do so as part of their complete kit.

I see what they are doing there, and I am a cnc machinist. I am no engineer but I am looking at the "angles" of the mount upright and curious if they did any FEA on the part for shear strength.

Glad they 3d printed prototypes. Way cheaper.
