I just got the engine in today but the trans mounting is about 1/2" too short. I changed from a stock T5 to a T5Z but I don't think that should have made a difference. Should I take a piece of steel plate and make a spacer?



Thanks Guys,

I had the hard mounts on the engine reversed. Lifted the engine and swapped engine mounts side to side. Voila everything fits.

I don't have enough information to be sure, but if I had to guess the motor mounts are not correct, possibly reversed?. We just did a mark II and the holes lined right up with a T5Z. Energy suspension mounts and no trouble. Hope this helps. Cheers Richard.

Richard,

I thought the same thing at first but they look right. If I moved the hard mounts the engine would move further forward. Do you know the correct distance between the motor mounts and the tranny mount?
