Headers and motor mounts for awd v8 swap

Post by Captn. Crunch » Sun May 14, 2017 8:21 pm

So a couple of years ago I bought motor mounts from a member here who stated they were for V8 awd swap. An astro friend of mine is in the midst of a V8 swap so I gave him the motor mounts that were gathering dust in the shed. Well imagine my consternation when we fitted the engine in the front clip yesterday and the mounts were no where close. The Hedman headers are also not going to work so my question is where does one get motor mounts or who has a pattern for mounts for a V8 swap in an awd van.
Also who has a good number for headers for said swap?

the JTR publishing company has the plans for you to make your own that they sell but I have no idea how much.
