Community Q&A Question: Chrome Moly K Member Engine Mount Strength

Asking About: Mustang UPR K-Member & Coil Over Kit w/ 12" 200lb Springs - 4130 Chromoly (79-93)


Chrome Moly K Member Engine Mount Strength

I was wondering what the track record is on breakage on your K Members around the engine mounting area. Most I see have extra welded in braces on the sides of those plates for added support vs. just being welded on the top and bottom of the plate to the tubing itself. I want a full kit very soon but I am alittle concerned by those mounts. Thankyou.

I have never heard of a K-member ever breaking from too much HP. I know many customers with 500-600 HP with stock K-members. This one is build from 4130 Chrome Moly Tubing which is the same material used in many purpose built race cars with great success. I would not be afraid at all to bolt up some serious HP to this K-member.

It's not the K Member itself I worry about but the mounting of the engine mount pads to the K member. Only 2 welds on those pads and no reinforcement tabs on the sides of the pads like others have.
