I'm installing a 5.3 with an F-Body Pan in the impala with a 4L60E.
I have it in but it's rigged.
I have a ICT swap plate on the engine 2 washers (because the mount has a hump in it) then a chevy mount bolted to the original frame mounts.
I have the clearance I need but I want a better cleaner setup for the engine.
what adapter plates is everyone using? so far I'm leaning to the brphotrods Kit but its $$$ and not adjustable

I'm using Street & Performance plates with Energy Suspension red mounts. I don't know if the S&P plates are still available.

You can also grind the bumps off of your mounts to eliminate the spacing issue.

Curious, what are you using for a transmission crossmember and mount?
