yeah, the rule of thumb is : between the first two bolt holes, as high as you can.

okay i have come to my decision. I ordered MMR Mounts sat. So I will pull the motor/tranny and do the mounts, oil pan, and clutch. A long with cleaning up some wiring and grounds that have worn over the years. I see it as a good time to clean the engine bay out and have a nice looking car come spring, seeing as i wo nt drive it till than.

Don't pull the AC compressor unless you're removing AC. You can just zip tie it out of the way when you pull the motor.

Mark where you are drilling the pan before you pull the motor so that you can see all the clearance items as they are. Mine is tapped behind the A/C compressor, but is awfully close to the power steering line.

i already drilled a hole but i hit the shield behind it, and cant get the tap started. I plan to remove it and move the shield away a little than tap and put the fitting in, i know it will fit though.
