New from Trans-Dapt Performance Products – the Gen 5 LT Engine Swap Mounts for classic American, factory small block Chevy-equipped passenger cars. See more details below.

Official Release:

Trans-Dapt Performance Products, an industry leader for engine swap and performance products since 1959, is excited to announce its new Gen 5 LT Engine Swap Mounts for classic American, factory small block Chevy-equipped passenger cars. These easy to use kits are a true bolt-in, no-welding required design, that allow SBC-equipped cars to easily accommodate the cutting-edge Gen 5 LT engine.

The small block Chevy motor is iconic in the automotive world and has been GM’s go-to powerplant since its inception in the 1950s. But like most factory powerplants, there is always room for improvement. The all-new Gen 5 LT motor is the latest chapter in the long legacy of the small-block engine, incorporating cutting-edge direct-injection technology into GM’s proven design. With the Trans-Dapt Gen 5 LT Engine Swap Mounts you will be able to give your project vehicle or daily driver a high-tech transplant with an outstanding balance of performance, efficiency and reliability.

Trans-Dapt’s Gen 5 LT Engine Swap Mount Kits include a complete set of heavy-duty 5/16” laser-cut engine plates, mount pads, and Grade 8 installation hardware. The simple, “bolt to frame” design easily installs without welding, and they are compatible for use on classic GM factory small block-equipped passenger cars.

Trans-Dapt’s Gen 5 LT Engine Swap Mounts are available in three different motor mount positions – 5/8” forward, 5/8” rearward or 1 1/8” rearward. The kits come with three different pad options – with polyurethane pads (Part Numbers 4521, 4224, 4527), with OE style rubber pads (Part Numbers 4520, 4523, 4526), or without any pads (Part Numbers 4519, 4522, 4525).

Trans-Dapt Performance Products manufactures these kits in its Whittier, California manufacturing plant. All components are warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a full 12 months.
