Cx Racing or Vorshlag has engine mounts as well as transmission mounts. Google will be your friend. There are many threads about the swap. It isn't easy so if this is your first engine swap you will be overwhelmed. Do you plan on getting it street legal? If so there will be some electronic work that will need to be done to get it all working right. All of the items below will need to be addressed and will need parts. You can go used for all the parts or new. Either way it will cost at least a few grand at the very least. Good Luck.
