I have not but , honestly, what is the point?

You can run simple plate adapters between the factor engine brackets ( use two lefts to get rid of the goofy upside down LT1 Specific RH) and let the factory mounts slide on the frame to find their new home before drilling new holes.

If you can drill a 3/8 hole, you can put the engine anywhere you want and not have the universal sliding "thing"

Compared to a regular SB or BB chev, the LT1 has the RH mount set back to give room for the AC position on the LT1

This is done with an additional mount boss on the block and a bracket that looks like the normal bracket upside down (but isn't)

Moving both mounts back equidistant from the bell housing and about the same spacing as the LS bosses flat makes sense and also makes the "bending motion" between the block and trans about the same as an LS production setup.

Functional, measurable difference, maybe not.


If you do go the flat adapter plate route , you will have to clearance the lumps on the factory brackets so they will sit flat on the plates
