  • TAM retrofit

    Some of the ecotec engine mounts are a similar nature as the S -series TAM. I don't expect the bolts to line up, but i could procure an extra bracket to try seeing if i could adopt a mount. welding and grinding is totally in the question - thoughts? figured the 2.2 could have similar vibrations as the lesser balanced 1.9... i checked out toyota's but i didn't see anything close to drop in place (would be ultimate parts reliability)

    i wish i was smart enough to design something to fit, but that is beyond my mental capacity.

    The Ecotec mount is just as fubar as the Ion gauge cluster.
    Since you're having to customize it anyway, might as well make it so it use's an "off-the-shelf" rubber or poly bushing. I don't remember the full details on this but it was some standard ES bushing part number and fairly standard size metal bits.

      im looking for the factory fit though, where it keeps engine in place but doesnt transmit every vibe like a poly bushing. The goal is replicate factory performance which is unmatched so far.

        you can get a bushing that would fit and be softer than a stiff poly just gotta search

          I've always wondered about the ion/ecotec mount being made to fit. Planned to try when ours failed, but our ion has 116k and it's not failed yet soo...
          It's not my fault, blame the radiation.
