>Does that wierd front engine locator that runs from the front of >the engine to the front grille cross member actually do anything?
I actually asked the same question a few weeks ago for the same reason. On my 4kq turbo swap I did not have the space to use the factory mount. The general concensus was you could run without it, but only if your other mounts were new and expect the others to fail quicker.
I decided to make my own mount. I used two rod ends with one connected to the motor and one to the FMIC support frame. I took up almost no front to back space. I have not taken any pictures yet, but I will in the next few days and put them on my web site.
