the GW front cut I think is a bit hi.

then again it's been while for prices if your in Sydney. Ring SSS automotive. They could even get your just a enigne package all GW's in theory should be auto only but for some reason manuals have been spoted.

And yes check with a Engineer the main issue is going to be the Engine MOUNT - AKA drivers side. The rest are all shared across the whole range. not all use the same points but the rear section of casing is 90% the same.

Yep, Windsor I believe SSS are in, so only local (ish) to me.

I can just send you a proper GF 626 V6 mount, it'll work... that's what yanks here use I think... not certain because I never kept up with this V6 mumbojumbo

all GW5Rs are autos, there was no manual option

this is a USDM GF 626... bone stock


notice the right hand side motor mount is different... I think it's a stronger mount than the BJ SP20 ones... the GF 626 with the FS and FP engines uses a similar style mount to the BJ... there isn't much doubt in my mind that it's a weaker design... most people use the Protege mount... I haven't spent enough time reading those huge long threads to find out why people don't use the V6 mounts

I'm fairly confident that the proper V6 mounts will fit as long as you used the matching brackets, which I can supply from here

Those US built post 97 626's are so much bigger in the engine bay LOL.

Unlike our Japan ones which are true Capella's but it looks crampped with a FS in it.

not really... it's just an illusion because the USDM 626 doesn't have the air intake scoop above the radiator... engine bay is basically the same size... there were no chassis lengthening or changes from what I could tell... only the outside sheet metal and interior are different
