    wont be an issue at all, just instead of bolting the mounts down in to the aluminum MOUNT, thread them up like a stud and use a nut.

    How does that make them stronger?

    The aluminum will strip out of you torque your engine bolts into it. I ran studs on my stainless ones just for the same reason to be safe.

    Ok, but that doesn't increase the strenght of the actual mount.

    Id say it does increase the strength, the strenth of the thread which is the weak point, lets not start picking posts apart, if you have something worthwhile to add, add it, if not, dont.

    No one was picking your post apart.. Just dont give wrong information... If the thread strength is the issue you can use ss Permacoil inserts which are 10 times as strong as tapped aluminum... The actual mounts themselves do not gain any strenght from threads or studs. $200 for a set of conversion mounts is a great deal!
