What is everyone using to limit the engine movement under high RPM?
A steel cable?
Are you mounting a bracket to the driver's side sway bar mount?

I use a sway bar link. Mount it to the sturt rod housing and make a bracket to the engine. I used the bushing and washers. Held up on my street car but not sure on a race car. Any others thoughts?

I think this topic was covered pretty well in a thread a while back. You might want to try searching for it.

If I remember correctly, the sway bar link/hole was what was commonly used as a mounting point. Chain, cable, or a heim-jointed link was used too.

Hope this helps some,

Tom
