Looking for the same info?

I'm also looking for some info on this subject. I'm putting a 700hp 514 in a 1988 coupe. I was originally going to put in with motor mounts and Hooker Super Comp. headers but I'm rethinking this whole thing. Can I use the Hookers with motor plates? Any info anybody can supply on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Follow links in my signature and click on the webpage link for some pictures of my installation.

I am using the stock K-member so the engine has not been dropped like some cars however for a bracket car, like mine, I didn't see the point in spending money on a new K-member etc........ So if you wish to lower the engine in your car, you will need to get a new K-member and/or K-spacers etc.........

Good Luck

Yes they can.

Hanging accessories off the front plate takes some enginuety. I usually recommend using regular side mounts if it's primarily a street car and you want to hang more than just an alternator on it. The mid-plate is labor intensive compared to the simple inst of the front plate.

The Hooker headers will work with plates. Headers designed for plate-only use cannot be used with side mounts. But Headers designed for mounts can be used with plates.

For more pics, you can follow the link in my sig. It's probably similar to the pics linked above.

Have a good day!

Have any of you guys used the Competition Engineering Motor Plates? Do you have any idea if they would fit a Fox Mustang?

Most of your engine plates will have to be trimmed to fit the chassis. Therefore one can locate the engine wherever needed.

I've heard of some people using mounts to help locate the engine plates however I used the measure, trial fit, cut- over and over method and it worked really well, just time consuming.
