The 2g doesn't use the lower diff housing mount like the 1g does. I wonder if the case is designed to have that much force on that part of the housing. 2g diff housings crack easy.

Well the 2G trans and the non-turbo trans are both g-types. So the case design is the same. The mount bolts up like Ford wanted it that way. lol. It has the same exact thru bolts that the 1g trans has.

I would think the "g-type" trans is referring to transmission internals, not the case itself.

I dont think there will be an issue and most cars that have a G series trans use the diff housing as a mount....

As do ours, just the other (intermediate shaft) side.

I'm not saying you will have a problem, just stating it is not the standard mount point. If you have the rear inner mount (I don't remember on the 1g F2/F2T), the combination of both will probably be better assuming you haven't extremely stressed either to get them to line up without modification.

So here is the mount before and after.


The axle went from here.

To here.

Much better. Sits perfectly. I thought it was still I little off, but I compared it to my buddies 2G and they sit exactly the same.

I think the back half can be swapped between the 2, aside from the top mount using completely different hole locations...I can find out once I finally break a 1g n/a trans, but I won't split them until there's a reason...

top mount holes might actually be a reason to swap when I do it, I suppose...

Looks good, though How far off is the front mount gonna be? and are you gonna get pics of the other mounts?

The front one is off by about 3-4 inches.

The side mount is a little more than an inch off. The engine need to be pushed back on the passenger side a bit to even this out, then the mount needs to be extended out, so it will bolt up. Easy fix.


The driver side trans mount need some L shaped brackets welded to the frame to bolt it in place.

Is that mount of a GT or LX? 5 speed or AUTO. The 5 speed passenger for the GT looks that it might fit better than that one. I know there's a diffrence in between the GT AUTO PASSENGER MOUNT & the 5 Speed.

Get a Turbo Manual mount...it should line up perfectly. The Auto's are offset to the rear a bit
