... the engine sits when put back together maybe 2-5 millimetres higher than the stock ones. I use the straps that come on the Volvo mounts and eliminate the lower hook plate from the car when installing them
The lower plates are a couple of mm thick, so, if not removed that 2-5 becomes 5 mm to hyperbole mm.
What I have noticed is that the Cortico (Volve OEM) does sit higher but settles after a few hours of run time. After settling it’s about right even with bottom plates. OTOH, the height is only an issue with ‘extra stuff’ on the motor, or for Euro 16vs.
