Default 350 to lsx engine swap

just thinking about things in my head and i came up with a question...

if you have a car that originally had a 350 SB - say old carb style, MPFI LT1, etc. - what engine mounts would you use to mount a newer 4.8/5.3/6.0?

Depends on your application. Some platforms (a-b-g body) have adapter mounts available. There are also generic LSX mounts out there that work with the original mount stands. Some may not be interchangeable with LT1 hardware.

Ok so most likely you can't just use factory lsx or SB mounts

you can use the older sbc clamshell frame side mounts with more than a few of the lsx swap block brackets

You could always try a "Lincoln adapter mount" it's where you pull all the gen1 shit off the crossmember, and then MIG on some new shit. Just saying. I've seen plans online, but for $70 why the hell not just buy a set?

Here ya go, get a drill and some plate steel and have fun.
