    Where are you taking your angle measurement from?

    Your pad also looks higher. Does it look my proto-type? Maybe the pad on the bar was welded on wrong which would help explain why it looks angled and not parallel

    On the vertical surface of the output shaft. For what it's worth, the same angle is measured on the timing chain cover...

    Is your trans mount pad welded higher then mine?

    Hard to tell. But it looks like the "pad" you're talking about is parallel to the flats that bolt down to the sub frame. I don't know if there is a part # stamped on there - getting ready to go look - just to make sure they sent the right one...When I ordered it, the website said there was only one left in stock.

    I was wondering if the pad is different, it seems mine is level with the tube and your picture looks like it sits above the tube

    Can you take a look at your adapter plate and engine mount and verify that it looks like mine in the picture below? Also, the mount has three bolts, one up top and two at the bottom...

    ^^ You got them upside down. The motor mount has 3 bolts, the single bolt is on the bottom and the two are on top. I'm guessing you got the left adapter plate on the right side and vise versa.

    Shit. I don't remember them being marked L or R. Looked symmetric...All I remember is the instructions said the rounded side towards the front.

    I'll have to take another look at how this affects things. The set back should be the same, but maybe the height is different...damn.

    Possible, it could have raised the engine and may be your issue with the crossmember.
