No maintained website? Come on guys, BBFW has this nice product section: Directory /products . It even has a nice "retro" dawn-of-the-internet feel to it.

Another data point for the bbfw drop mounts. They either break in or I acclimated to the nvh. It provided some new buzzy sounds in cabin but feels great everywhere else.

Any up-dates?

The crookedness worries me only because of my prefabbed TS kit... I would not want to add unnecessary stresses to a kit that was not developed on a crooked engine..

Nope. I'll ping him. I'd like this resolved sooner rather than later. Way easier to fix things when the car isn't together and i'm house shopping. Don't particularly want to have to button up car crooked, then handle it after moving.

Installed my mounts last nigh. Not happy at all. They relocated my engine about 3/4" lower than OE mounts. Pretty much every part of my turbo assembly is now resting on the side shelf. Kind of lame for a $300 part. Maybe there is something I am missing..

Yep buttoned up my car yesterday to fire it. Intake occupies same space as radiator fans because of the tilt.

I heard this back from them about 20 days ago "Thank you. We believe the backing plate on that side was mis-cut based on some other plates. We are double checking that now. ".

Crickets since. I was saving my $ for a set of their light weight arms too .. but this is kinda turning me off their entire business in general TBH.

I got this on the 2nd. No eta, but i'm torn between being a bother, and wanting to know when i can have all this together properly.

I have some drivers side backing plates coming, I believe we might have had a run of plates that the holes where off.

Spoke to Shandelle a few minutes ago, waiting on the corrected plates to come back and then they will ship.

Same here. Shandelle said they were trying out different mounting heights on these and somehow a lowered mount got used as a template. Everything else they make seems stellar, since my engine isn't in the car yet,I can wait.

Installed the driver side plate today. All looks well, as the engine is now almost perfectly zeroed

Hey guys, just thought i'd email Shandelle about the mounts I had but hadn't installed yet.
The issue was was the non-VVT drivers side backing plate. Those plates are being replaced. The VVT style mounts shipped with the correct plate.
So, if you have a set of VVT plates, should be no issue. Just wanted to throw some extra info in.

Sorry to bump an old thread but does anyone have any reviews on these, specifically the “Cadillac” mounts? Not much info out there
