All you 16v guys

As most of you know, you need to put a little body lift in the front of your sami to clear the fuel injection housing from the hood of the sami. While I was stripping my tracker today I noticed the body mount pucks an the tracker and was wondering if I can use them on the front of my sami to help boost the front end up without having to do a 1'body lift??? Does anyone know or does anyone have a different suggestion. Thanks TOM

Mine are tapered. Starting at the firewall and getting bigger as you go forward.

Re: All you 16v guys

I have a 1" body lift on mine and it clears the FI just fine. I know that TT just lifts the front body of the rig. My question is why wouldn't you just do a complete 1" body lift?

Re: All you 16v guys

Couple of options on this one.. I know Petroworks does the swap without a body lift. you might want to call and check out the details. I think they are going to have an install kit.

Another option I have seen used is to use t-case mounts under the front clip. We were able to do that on my buddies rig, but we also modified the motor mounts to get the engine a little lower. Ended up working great.

Re: All you 16v guys

tanzuki to answer your question, I have the body mounts already pulled and plus I am cheap and don't want to spend the $100 for the body kit. I am going to look into the t-case mount bushings I think I have a few laying around somewere!!!! If i dont have them I will try the tracker body blocks.

Re: All you 16v guys

I am considering changing my 8 valve 1.6L to fuel injection - will I also have to do a body lift to clear it?

Thanks,

Re: All you 16v guys

Can the FI be flipped 180 degrees so the throat faces the passenger side? If the intake didn't cross the head would you have more options? (The 2.0 doesn't cross over) If so then a little trim in the hood and a scoop for looks and you're done... almost.

Re: All you 16v guys

pug, yours should be fine without messing with the body mounts.....

trail tough does a 1/4 lift on the front of the TUB the part where the drivers feet are...
and about .5 to .75 lift on the front body mounts of the front clip....

I think...
