You can be sure that your motor will stay in place when you use a MRE or Competition Engineering Front Motor Plate. On initial acceleration, torque produced by the engine causes it to twist in the chassis. This twisting action can waste valuable power that could be used to propel the car forward. By installing a front motor plate, you provide a solid connection between the engine and the chassis, eliminating the twisting action and ensuring that the power gets to the rear wheels. For years, leading chassis builders have relied on Competition Engineering Front Motor Plates to eliminate engine movement and provide a positive method of locating the engine in the chassis. These motor plates are also beneficial when performing engine swaps or setting the motor back in the chassis for increased weight transfer.
