: My previous owner installed an additonal engine mount made of a Hurst shifter bolted to the valve cover and damped with a rubber engine mount. It connected to the side of the engine. It definately reduces the wobble of the top of the engine. There is a bracket bolted to the valve cover (a peice of aluminum) with two machine screws and then the bent up shifter rod (just another flat peice of aluminum) is bolted perpinducularly to that.
When the bolt connecting the bracket to the shifter-come-engine mount rattled off, the engine did wobble quite a bit (not five inches though).

p.s. how fast is your Z and where do you lurk to glean knowledge on the internet?
