I'm not sure what the mount on the engine looks like on the SRT engine. I'd assume it's the same bolt pattern and think the regular setup would work for it but not 100% certain. Got the engine already? Take a pic of the timing belt area without anything in the way.

Can't use a Mopar computer, the 2003-up engines (all SRT engines) have a different crank trigger pickup and 1st gen computers can't read it.

Don't need 2nd gen mount stuff in a 1st gen either.

Bumping this for my own info...

I know on the passenger side I use the stock 1GN mount on the frame, with the adapter and the 2.4L mount on the motor.

I know that I should "flip" the trans mount upside down and remount it (Is that right?)

I know that you should use a booble, preferably solid and work around it with intercooler piping.

I don't know how the Front mount works.

Pics and part numbers would be a great help with the FMM.

use the 2.0 front motor mount and cut around the sides to clear the oil pan, I don't have any pics or anything since I still have to pick up my 2.4

Read the how-to I posted in the how-to section. There is pictures of what to do with the FMM.
