My donor engine had new mounts under it . I left the tranny on it as i wanted to see how good it is and i knew the original was good. After a week of driving, everything is great. What a difference. The front end seems tighter. I'm guessing its the engine mounts and/or maybe the fact that this engine is firing strong on all 5 cylinders. The ac is blowing cold. Need to close the defrost vents.

thanks all for the help.
Congrats,good for another 200k.
