    Default Engine mount

    I have had my 650hp engine in here for years w/ out a problem but now am planning an upgrade. How much hp would you think this frame/mounts good for? How could it be strengthened?

    That looks pretty good to me. You might could add some aluminum plate on the outside of the stringers, maybe add some cutouts in them to remove some weight. A pump brace could be added in while the engine is out as well.

    X2. A solid strip of aluminum in place of the washers. Still use the washers, to pread the load on the aluminum. As for adding cutouts, it adds beauty, but would save less weight than a can o beer.
