I got my Atlas in and since it is bigger than the 231, it is firmly sandwiched between my long arm crossmember and the floorpan/tranny tunnel. There is NO movement at all for it. Will I need some driveline movement (i have an auto) to absorb some shock? I have poly engine mounts, a stock rubber tranny mount but it's the Atlas being firmly mounted that concerns me. The long term fix is to gut the interior and modify the floorpan a bit, but I don't want to do that until I am ready to build the cage.

Any advice? Will I grenade the Atlas if it doesn't have any room to move?

Thanks

I would say that no movement is not good and that you should definitely do what it takes to fix that. I dont think it would grenade the atlas but it would make alot of vibration and noise I would think and it can't be good. I would say that it needs at least a good inch to move around. I know cutting the floor sucks but just bite the bullet like I did and it will all be over before you know it!

Probably wouldn't hurt the Atlas, but it will destroy the adapter or bell housing.
toss a body lift on it short term till you can get it fixed right.

I hate body lifts, but it'd work.

Another option would be to space the longarm crossmember down a couple inches.
