Putting a sbc in my 1988 camaro that had a 2.8 in it. I need to know what
mounts to use.

Use V8 motor mounts. Just use the right type that fits whatever engine you put in it. There are many variations of SBC so pick the type that fits your car and engine.

Nobody knows the p/n off the top of their head so go to a Chevrolet parts dept. & ask them about V8 mounts. You will need to know exactly what year sbc engine your using.

And you might have to "mix & match" some upper & lower engine mounts, if different years are used. Not hard to fab-up a new half from mild 1/4" steel & make a cardboard template first for holes.
