    It has an explorer diff cover, and the front mounts are poly, as are the rears. Trying to make the least vibration transmission possible while still solidly mounting it. I could go to derlin if needed i suppose.

    I had delrin in my diff mounts and poly in the subframe mounts. I didn't have any issues with vibrations or added noise.
    Good place to deal with

    Does that run the stock cobra inner cv joint or the whole shaft?

    It will be a porsche 930 inner cv, and a 300ZX Twin turbo outer CV, custom bars.

    Also, I'll be doing a headlight upgrade, because mine totally blow at the moment.

    I'll be buying housings soon. Which ones should I get?

    Thought I'd give a quick update on the winter projects.

    The full blown knock down, drag out details can be seen here -------> http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/1093...rs-conversion/



    Built my own custom mounts for a Cobra 8.8, and installed it.





    Driveshaft shop custom DS and axles. Billet input stubs with porsche 930 cv's. 300M bars, and 300zx NA outers (to retain 4 lug hubs) i can upgrade these to a turbo cv later for added strength if needed.



    New DS Loop



    Pre x-pipe exhaust



    With exhaust all the way on



    Rebuilt the trans to get rid of the dreaded 5/6 gear vibe. Thanks to Texas Drivetrain Performance for machining my main shaft! NO MORE VIBE!!!!




    Z32 rear brakes, and Techno Toy Tuning uprights




    Other winter upgrades include:

    HID's - to be put on tonight! I almost smacked a deer on EP True pkwy last night on the maiden voyage. Needs headlights like whoa.

    LS3 oil pan (1" gain in ground clearance and baffling)
    Went from a PCV system to a catch can system
    Fixed numerous squeaks / rattles
    More to come!
