Have a buddy that welds help or take it to a shop for that part.

My dad is a highly skilled welder and I told him I wanted to do that and like you I've never welded, he said, "That is simple junkyard welding. Just practice on a piece before doing the welds. Since it doesn't have to pass an x-ray test or look pretty, it's pretty hard to **** it up."

Anyone ever check to see if someone was making a bolt in motor mount? For my Charger I used an outfit that specialized in them.

To do the swap, the motor mount has to be moved several inches. I don't think it's possible to have a bolt in motor mount in that situation.

Yea, but there are a lot of things to be considered before striking an arc.
You donít want the engine sitting too high in the chassis, creates handling and hood clearance issues, too low and itís hitting the oil pan on everything, have to consider clearance front and back (firewall and radiator), the engine will probably have to be offset about an inch to the passenger side to clear the steering shaft and it has to be tilted back at about 6-8 degrees for consistent oil flow.
If a pair of bolt in adaptor mounts from a place like Advanced Adapters is available thatís the route to take because positioning and angles have already been worked out for you.

Stacey David on Gearz did this very thing, LS into a Miata.
If anyone is truly interested back episodes are on YouTube.

There are a couple outfits that make the motor mounts and tell you where they have to be installed (there's a Ford version and LS version).

There are bolt in kits but you're looking at atleast 10k in swap parts.

This.

LSx swaps into Miatas and Rx-7's/8's are pretty popular. There's probably conversion kits out there for them.

We just sold a specialty part to a race team that swapped an LS into a Hyundai Genesis.
