I am right now at the stage of building engine mounts fr a 280zx 5.0L swap. Engineering or decent drawings are going to be hard to do as there are weird angles assosiated with the mounts (especially if you plan on building the mounts off the drawings). I did some "basic" cad drawings with aproximate dimensions. a stress test showed these mounts could handle 5000N each (about 500kg), so should be sufficient. your best bet is to probably posistion the engine where you want it then build the mounts in accorance by tac welding etc. i hope this helps you visulise a way of doing the mounts (they are actually quite similar to another set of mounts i saw in a forum here) .
Good luck mate cheers!

Are the frame rail dimensions radically different compared to the first gen 280Zs?
I ask because if they are the same or close, could one not use the Alsil designed,and available. engine cross member? Jtr tranny mount kit?
JTR radiator kit. Tweak and burn?

Im using the tr3650 tranny and where i'm mounting the engine ive had to cut abit of the tunnel away, the stick is about 10-15cm further back than stock. if you mounted the engine further forward you could probably use the stock tranny mounting points (i've had to cut mine off). Remember when poisioning the gearbox/motor to consider drive shaft orientation, a general rule of thumb is the drive shaft shouldn't be more than a total of 6 degs and the angles between the shaft and the connecting hookes joints shouldn't be more than 1.5 deg different. This will keep vibration to a minimum. and keep in mind the diff (in my case) is located about 1/2 inch to the right (My drivers seat is on the right side too.)
I thought I read that the stick came out farther back, thanks. As far as mounting the engine out/up, how can you keep the angles little to none? Will using the fox body(?) sump help, allowing the engine to be lower?
Thanks yet again
