Question Blackbird Fabworx Drop Mounts Friendly w/ Turbo?

I saw a bunch of you chime in on another thread saying you had these mounts. I am debating on whether to get the drop mount or normal height version (1999 NB).

Has anyone installed the drop mounts with a turbo setup? If so, were there any issues?

Also, if anyone has any experience with them I'd love to hear it. Could you actually feel a difference from the 1/2" engine drop?

I have drop mounts. Feels a lot better than the Mazda comp mounts and the 949 hybrid mount kit. No problems with my turbo setup. Your mileage may vary. Everyone is running different manifolds and downpipe . Use some common sense to see if there's a risk of interference but I'd totally get them again if I had to

Sweet, thanks for the info! Yeah, went through and looked everything over and I should be fine with a 1/2" drop. Was just curious if anyone ran into any issues I don't foresee.
