Mandrel bends

Thanks for the advice. I looked at some of those cages on the sites that were sent to me. One was very reasonable at $298. I have a friend that welds race cars frames. I already have the SBC with the dueces in the frame but now need to move motor further forward or have the blower in the cab with me. It was suggested to use a motor plate for rigidity and it makes sense. I don't think a couple of bolts through a rubber mount and a cople of washers is going to control that hp. Wonder if I'll need a mid plate too? I'm running a Muncie 220 as I want something that reminds me of the muscle cars I had back in the 60's. Automatic? Grandma's car had an automatic. I have a TH400 that's for sale on this site if anyone's interested. We wouldn't have any respect back then driving an auto. This is going to be driven on the streets FOR FUN. Isn't that what it's all about? Since I picked up this blower motor things are getting serious!
