What are you mounting it in ? Generally the airplane manufacturer offers a mount for turbo prop planes. For example I believe CARF offers a mount and exhaust pipes for their Tucano.

If it's a scratch build or a modification you'll probably need to design your own. I converted a Phoenix Tucano from 60cc gas to K45 TP and I needed to design my own mount.

Hi thats the problem- I am converting a Frankel T34 to a T34 C model so its just a flat firewall so its quite a distance Probably will end up making one out of 3/8th inch ply-The torque will be the problem. Scott

This motor required both a Front mount and a side support…similar to the photo of my turbo Raven, pretty your install is possible, but I never own a frankel so I can’t say….

But, I would run and extension from the firewall to support both the front mount and the side mount…..maybe a metal piece….

As I mentioned, I made a mount for the K45TP I installed in my 60cc Phoenix Tucano. It had a firewall for a gas engine similar to what you describe except there wasn't enough room between the firewall and the front of the cowl to fit the K45TP. I removed the firewall and slid the mount between the engine box sides. This is a rendering of the mount.

Default Kt 60tp

I just finished up a conversion on a Comp Arf Siai from gasser to TP. KT60 installed. Used CF to reinforce the firewall. constructed a mount from 1/4" ply and then fabricated aluminum reinforcements.
