    sup!? first of all this is a LONG STORY so bare with me, sooo i understand innovative and hasport make auto to manual conversion tranny mounts for DA's but do to being a retard and trusting this mechanic I went to a while back I got talked into buying the most expensive hasport b series polyurethane replacement mounts to correct how my engine sat...it obviously sat the same way once the mounts were put in and the mechanic wouldnt give me my money back, since then I have properly shimmed the tranny mount to level out the engine but the problem is my tranny sits too far foward thus creating an akward passenger side axle angle.

    SOO my question is if I replace the last existing automatic tranny mount connected to the front of the tranny with the manual mount, cut off the tranny mount connected to the unibody and re-weld it like your supposed to will everything line up ok??

    If they used factory replacement Hasport mounts then that is most likely your issue. For the trans mount you need to use a conversion mount (ie Innovative Mounts # 49321, see link below) or you will need to cut off the a/t frame bracket found on the rh side of the engine bay and replace it with the m/t version. You can pick those up at you local deal. Personally I recommend using the conversion mount as I have seen many people have those welds fail, depends on who does it I guess.

    Just to make sure im running a gsr and cant stand the vibration front the polyurethane mounts so I intend to replace all but the upper tranny swap mounts with oem mounts will they bolt right up to or is there any shimming involved?

    as long as the frame mount (welded bracket) on your car has not been modified, then the auto to 5spd mount will bolt right on. Are you using a cable transmission or the hydro GSR trans?

    Also will the engine/tranny feel wierd with just one polyurethane mount? Even if i go with the red street series bushing?
