This is what you need on the top of mount.




Do I need the round one also, or just the rectangular one on top?

It's one piece.

Your transmission should be a good 2" higher in the chassis, there's plenty of room above.

Not sure how to do that with it being tied into the adapter plate?

I just noticed you're not running a 901 trans ... I see your dilemma now

I wonder if the adapter plate could be made with an offset, so it could come up higher?

Input shaft on the trans can't move in relation to the position of the engine, so no.

The steel plate mounting the trans to the trans mounts could be bent to raise the back of the trans...

How low is your car? Raising up the rear would be the easiest option.

From my trans to my wheels, my axles go uphill at a 10 degree slope. Is that too much?

They angle forward a bit also, but it don't appear to be that much.



Something else just came to mind (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif) ... I'm wondering if you'll need to shorten the axles once you raise the trans upward (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

What happens when you lift the car? ... is there any binding on the axles when the trailing arms move downward?

I haven't checked, but custom axles were made for it.
I have a Craig Davies remote WP, and wonder if the engine could still be moved ahead a tweek, then maybe could raise it up some? Right now the back is about a thumb's width at the back of the engine bay, towards the top from hitting. I would imagine if I was able to move the trans up, to some degree, I would have to take some off the length of the axles.

Possibly.

Hard to tell how much 'wiggle room' you've got from the pic angles we're seeing. How much room is there between the sides of the trans in relation to the mounting points?

Also, measure the clearance above the trans to determine how much it can move up.

See if something like this will work for you. Modify the existing bracket to lower the mounting points on each side of the trans while leaving enough clearance that the top of the trans doesn't hit the trunk floor.

Looks like at the top of that adapter plate, there would be at least 1 1/2"-1 3/4" it could go up yet. Just eyeballing it.

Got my top plates in for the mounts, but no difference than before, other than won't pull through.

These shocks and springs are at least 13 years old. I don't know how long before that, the previous owner had them, and so maybe it is time to change them out?

Can we get a pic of the side of the car to see how low you are?

You can pick up another 2" if you delete the Porsche factory donut hanger at the trans and use the Subaru OEM trans support.

Thanks.
It was originally Green, but the previous owner had it black. This one replaced the 3.6 conversion I had stolen back in 2006, and so I had it painted a color I like.

Will putting on new springs help with the angle on the axles?

Yes but it would raise your rear ride height.

How long have you had it setup like this? Have you ever blown an axle? It might be a case of don't fix what's not broken.... Sure it can be improved but at what cost...
