Got the motor mounts in. Does this look like the engine is too high?

Volvo mounts? New Volvo mounts will set the top of the intake above the cross brace immediately after removing the engine support used to do the job. After a nice long drive the height of the intake will be about level with the top of the cross brace. After 6-12 months the top of intake will sit a millimeter or two below the top of the cross brace. This has been my experience and the height has remained constant for about 3 years (see my avatar).

If you can get the airbox on and the hood closed, it's not too high.

you might want to consider installing a new ATE brake booster.
Of course it would have been easier to swap before you did the MMs

Thanks guys. Stan you are right. I think I will save that project till next Winter when I do the intake refresh. This Winter was motor mounts, OPG, rear axle boots, shocks all around, painted calipers, tie rod ends, steering rack bushings & boots, steering reservoir and new power steering hoses.

That list grew!
