Default STS LS mounts

Just to be clear. The STS LS mounts use the factory cross member correct?

I must have gotten some early production mounts - they don't have the slots for engine positioning, just holes.

Holes can be a lot of fun when used properly.

Since this is recent and doesn’t have 240 in the title I’ll piggy back off of it for 7/9 series. Maybe it will be good keep all the STS info in one place...

Do those mounts bolt directly on to the pedestals? Do you have to trim tbe metal tab/seat on the bottoms of the rubber inserts? What oil pan fits the crossmember? Is there a definitive answer if the truck manifold and alternator fits??

I'm almost done with a new version for 7/9 series ls mounts. The Holley 302-1 aluminum oil pan is required. In order to clear the hood with the truck intake hammering would be required to push the motor back. I have pictures I can post here soon

Some more pictures would be great. I’m looking at test fitting a set with a 5.3 and 4l60e this weekend and can’t find a ton of info on the fitment. I really don’t want to move to a car intake and accessories on top of the swap pan. What headers have to be ran to fit in the 740 with the old style mounts?

Yes the new setup. We used the cast iron hooker headers. I'll have to take a picture of the tunnel tomorrow. We were using the 4l60E as a test fit for the mounts

So can the old style be used similarly with a truck manifold, Holley 302-1 pan, and hooker cast irons? What are you doing to mount the transmission to the Volvo crossover? Thanks again!

Here's links for you guys that will save you a TON of money on doing the swap, this is a clone of the Holley pan and the hooker headers that fit with the sts mounts
https://www.poormanmotorsports.com/p...uminum-natural
https://www.ebay.com/i/223275100446?...e27886ffd21af9

It will save you about 300 bucks

So the ones ya sent me in March will fit the truck accessories? Don't mind the tunnel work for the 4L80e is a beast and will require some big ass hammer wackin.
Was hoping to keep the LH6 truck intake and pan.....

I should check to see if the hood closes on mine with the truck intake on it. I got an LS6 intake just for the room - I'll still be able to run my strut brace.

Wow didn't know my mounts were that early of a batch. I think I bought them back in July-August of 2015. Mine don't have slots in them either lol

They also hold up very well to abuse and still fit perfectly with no struggle on install at all. VERY happy I chose these mounts way back when!

https://youtu.be/Hag9OvwUt4c

They have I'm guessing north of 400 street pulls during tuning and just general ****ery. Also over 50 passes have been made at the track as well in the last 12 months.
