Default Bolt motor to custom roll cage?

Im building a full roll cage and i was wondering if i can bolt the motor up to it along with the frame mounts? or will it try and twist the cage or something? my motor isn't really beefed up just a rv cam and Highrise intake.

I would not, the motor likes to be able to move some. You may also have a vibration also

Like said above, The motor needs to be able to flex seperatly from the chassis.
