YJ motor mounts

Doing a v8 swap on a 90 yj 2.5. What's the best way to relocate the motor mounts bolt in or weld?

From Novak Conversions
Quote:
A comparative note about predetermined bolt-in mounts vs. the The Novak engine mounting system:

We at Novak receive many compliments on our engine mounts. Most customers find that it is liberating and satisfying to install their engine where they determine is the best place.

The most prevalent complaint we receive about other companies' predetermined bolt-in mounts is the lack of freedom of placement for the varying situations each installer encounters with their Jeep. Installing an engine based on what may have been a decent location for the manufacturer's design project often presents some irritating and otherwise easily avoidable restrictions not present with a pair of our mounts that offer the installer more options.

Cradle style mounts were more popular in the '60's and '70's. We used to offer one. What everyone discovered was that the engine itself makes for a crossmember on its own. Being only inches behind the factory front crossmember, cradle mounts offer nothing more than a hindrance in the engine bay. A crossmember mount is usually the result of trying to retain the use of the factory frame horns that are placed precariously behind the actual mount bosses on the conversion engine, and an attempt to rebalance the situation.
