    When it comes to exhaust flanges, I stopped using them in my builds. I use slip joints with stainless band clamps.


    They seal great, fit well in tight quarters, allow you to fine tune the fit of the exhaust with a twist and easily remove sections when needed. They can be reused over and over.

    Dammit, now I have to push the deadline a further back, now that I'm worry about the engine swinging around the bay on stock 22re mounts. I'll just get solid 22re mounts. Hows the vibrations through the truck with the engine at idle?
    I'll definitely look into the band clamps for the exhaust

    Vibrations are barely noticeable at idle. It's a very smooth running motor.

    Solid 22r motor mounts wont work with the ebay mounts. The ebay mounts just arent what they used to be and make the engine sit higher on one side. Ive complained to the seller and he supposedly fixed it but still had same issue with another set a friend bought. Looks like you are having the same issue.

    I pulled the engine out for the 50th time. I'll just have to wait for solid mounts to come in. Do you guys have any pictures of how the exhaust manifolds clear the control arms? I do want the engine to sit as low as possible, especially not having to cut into the tunnel.
    Literally what is stopping me is the exhaust manifolds fitting evenly between the control arms.
    I have don't have clearance issues with the A/C compressor near the steering box or the frame or the valve cover with the brake booster anymore.

    So should I notch the ebay mounts a little more to bring engine down some

    By the way, this is a pre-mount and header modification picture

    While the motor mounts are being sorted will addressing the wiring. Just need the wire diagram for body plugs from 22re harness

    Update went ahead ordered trail gear solid mounts a 22re.
    Received them and test fitted the engine. Conclusion I need cut and re-position original mounts on the chassis to about an inch and half lower and use tundra headers to make it fit ( so many shims on the control arms the headers will touch).

    Also, its necessary to do it this way so that transmission bell-housing will clear the tunnel under the cab.

    OEM tundra exhaust manifolds MIGHT work but the aftermarket headers will not fit. The sc400 manifolds should be working for you. It's worked for two of the mini swaps I've done.
    We had to lower the original chassis mounts when using the excessive mounts also.

    Yea they would work if the truck didn't required so many shims on the control arms to compensate for camber. See pic above. Also the bellhousing hits the cab so the engine needs to drop some for everything to clear.
