Yup, Copy a set of theirs. If you can do that you can also just fabricate your own factory type mounting perches no matter what K frame you're working with and just mate them to whatever style insolater you want to use.

With what I said above, use the rear XMSN mount as your point of reference for everything and keep the engine as close to the K frame as you can.

Just set the motor where you want it and build the mounts from the K-member to the block.

I didnt think that $150 was that much when it cuts all that time of making your own. I have a set of their mounts and torque strap just waiting for the install of my son's 383 in his 68 Dart...

$150 is not bad for the quality. I still prefer the DC k-member option, but I can build them for myself.

To answer your question, though, yes you can build your own mounts. Like said above the trans mount should be your reference point, crank should be parallel to the frame rails and the front about 5.5" above the k-member. Make sure you have enough clearance for the oil pump and whatever exhaust you plan on using.
