    Yup thats the bolt. I cut off both on the drivers side and one on passenger. I didnt use the heatshield on the drivers cuz i figured the shorties had their own heatshield. I left it on the passenger side because only one bolt had to be cut off so one was still holding the shield. I also cut them off because if i wanted to replace the motormount, i would never be able to back that bolt out without taking the manifolds off....which i never wanted to do again

    I can’t really tell from my pictures like I said I didn’t do it but that’s how the mechanic left it and for something as silly as what ur saying heat shielding that’s really surprising that he couldn’t see that

    Ur 100 % sure that’s the bolt ?I will just do it myself then because it’s unacceptable that he left it like that it will cause false knock ,maybe that’s why my car blew a fuse automatic shutdown fuse rt after that was done

    Just a guess what do u think the chances r that my headers are not sitting completely flush?? I don’t think I have to remove the headers to fix this ? Just the motor mounts bolts and a jack no??

    Well i did it just because i couldnt get the shorties to sit flush an i chose cutting the bolt rather than beating on the shorty shield. It seemed like i COULD make them fit by reshaping the shield so i would think they made the clearance....and if they arent flush you would know pretty quickly by getting a pretty big exhaust leak right at the head. Its in and onstalled so I personally wouldnt mess wit it.....but if u ever have to change a motor mount or pull the motor your going to have to wrestle the shorties out first I think

    Screenshot_2017-10-12-21-02-41.png

    Here is a pic of the mount, bolt #3, heatshield #2 and nut #1. The #3 bolt is a threaded stud with a hex head, then the threaded stud on top side of hex and the heatshield goes over that and held with the nut. So what i did was cut the back side stud portion turning that #3 into just a regular bolt and toss the shield and nut....so your picture is showing the back side of that #3 and shield and nut. I will say it seemed like a pretty soft material to cut thru. I personally WOULD be worried about a false knock. U could probably get in there with a sawzall with like a 12 inch blade and just chop it off right at the #1 nut and keep the shield since its on but of course those are close quarters. It might even be easier at this point to go in from the wheel well and maybe remove a fender liner or something....but im just spitballing there. ..not lookin at the car right now

    yea, #2 is the heatshield cover....its real pliable like aluminum foil. Well, if the exhaust leaks, your mechanic should be fixing it.....and if he fixes it, he can do it right and modify the bolt so it doesnt leak.....but I would think that leak would be pretty loud and there would be no 'maybe the exhaust is leaking'.

    Ur right he should fix it or better yet not have done it wrong,but like I said his re to me telling him those bolts r in fact unnecessary was “good luck getting to them now” IM going to stop by him on Saturday anyway so I will get into it with him ,he’s not a phone guy and neither am I . I still have to bang the x pipe into the midpipes,after I installed the differential in my driveway I let em hang and they slid out and I couldn’t get under the front that day far enough to get em in (btw those x pipes are pure shit they’re welded together they’re not real x pipes ,the weld is actually why I couldn’t tap them in individually,But you been a great help

    884E7A9F-6E3F-486A-AE19-B5CA4C7EB283.png Yep that is a heat shield I thought it was just the aluminum looking stuff that’s a heat shield but this whole piece here is actually a motor mount heat shield

    Hope some other guys see this thread and save themselves a headache,cause I did A LOT research on the install before I gave it to the mechanic and I mentioned that a heatshield may have to be discarded or a bolt trim ,he said he got it” no worries apparently he really didn’t get it ,I shouldn’t have to do all the research for a mechanic,it’s not rocket science I do research for my electrician job and pay mechanics to do they’re research “hemi 3 specialist “ really?
