E28 Engine Mount - LVVA

4 posts in this topic

Hi Team,

I know this has been discussed in another thread by me but as time has progressed and turbo setup has changed i had to make some extra space and wanted to see if people think this will pass or if i am better just making a new one

Orginal: e28 Mount attached to block via 6mm plate (wasn't space friendly)

Current: M5 Mount + 10MM Steel Plate attached to e32 block ( i have put threads in the plate so it threads all way through)

Or Do i use the spare 10mm steel i have and just create one (welded or just heat up plate and bend then tread) basically be reserve of M5 mount

I'd be using a single mount from block to chassis/frame/body, rather than a mount, and a piece of plate. It may require something to be fabricated, but the strength and construction are then easy to prove.
Is there any precedence for a two-piece engine mount? That's most likely the guideline.

This is one of those instances where you would be best talking to your certifier about it, and see what solution they would prefer.

From my experience this would be totally fine.

Just make sure you use bolts 8.8 or 10.9 (better) and locking washers. 

10mm is ideal. 

6mm is the min for engine brackets.
