Celica **RA2x** chassis to Beams Motor Mount Brackets

Availability: In stock

  • Description


    Drawing on our experience with BEAMS swap for the AE86, we've made these RA swap brackets with our same simple effective design that drop the Beams motor into position with a little slotting for an easy install. To make it all go in without any fabrication, we've also made a simple transmission cross member that lines up the tail end as well with the J160 6 speed transmsssion, when used with our one piece drive line and our shifter relocation, the swap is easy!! The brackets are designed to be used with the AE86 front cross member with a rack and pinion steering conversion.

    General fitment:

       The BEAMS motor has two units on the back of the head that may require the firewall to be clearanced depending on motor position with the slotted mount. This positioning of the motor allows the use of the factory sway bar without any extra brackets. Clearancing is easily done with a bit of hammering, no cutting is required on the firewall or trans tunnel. See below for steering rack info. These brackets DO NOT work with a stock RA front cross member.

    Manual steering, AE86 front cross member:

        These brackets are designed to be used with AE86 front crossmembers that have a rack and pinion, not the stock recirculating ball steering. No modifications to the oil pan are required for manual (non power) steering racks. You do not need to remove the pan from the motor and cut it up! Most motors come with a 30 day start up warranty, removing the pan and cutting it will probably void any warranty and push your timeline outside the 30 warranty window to get it all done. "Lower profile" motor brackets would require modifications to the oil pan and further expose the front sump oil pan to damage from the bottom.

    Power steering, AE86 front cross member:

          These brackets allow the use of the stock power steering rack with only a minor modification to the support flange on the lower rear of the oil pan to clear for the center PS hard line. You do not need to remove the power steering rack or cut off the lower section of the pan/trans brace. The modification is about 1.5" to 2" hole in the support flange for the center hard line on the rack. You do not need to remove the pan for this modification. The addition of our fast ratio AE steering arms to your car will net the steering angle and quickness of the popular manual rack swaps. "Lower profile" motor brackets would require severe modifications to the oil pan and further expose the front sump oil pan to damage from the bottom.

    Hood fitment:

    When used with our 1" front frame spacers, no cutting of the under hood bracing is required and minimal trans tunnel clearance work is required. There will be a need for more work on the transmission tunnel for fitment if you run a thinner spacer or none at all. **Using no front frame spacers will require hood cutting and a fair bit of fitment inside the trans tunnel.**

     Material and Design

    Made from 1/4" laser cut steel, formed, gusseted and plated, these mounts are simple, strong and accurate. Our manufacturing design uses only 1 part to build the main bracket structure and then add a gusset. This 1 + 1 design allows us to supply a strong, quality product with less welding making manufacturing accurate and efficient. We've also included new bolting hardware so you don't have to use the old bolts that are probably getting messed up from age and grit anyway.


    Kit includes:

      Driver and Passenger motor brackets

      Block bolting hardware
