Mountain’s instructions suggest the best position for the engine by measuring off the factory suspension mounts based on years of swapping experience, and luckily we can adjust the body mounts on our project to guarantee firewall to engine clearance. If you are not doing a basic swap like a GM V-8 swap into a Jeep, you need to consider the following: engine to firewall clearance, oil pan to axle clearance at full suspension compression, front accessory drive clearance, top of engine to hood clearance, exhaust routing, front driveshaft routing and clearance, air filter mounting location, brake booster clearance, steering shaft routing, and radiator to fan clearance.
