    Engine mounts

    Hi,

    I'm sure my engine mounts are abit soft as the engine moves about a fair bit.

    Whats the best bet? Change them for uprated stuff or O.E.M?


    Anybody uprated them?

    i think their made of cheese to be honest. The engine/tranny does move around a fair bit.
    If you've been down a 1/4 mile or just try and shift quickly at full throttle its quite difficult as a result.
    Im going to a BSH or Neuspeed Torque Arm Insert, and ECS Dogbone mount. These are alot stiffer and you really notice it when shifting apparently, and their pretty cheap.

    Yeah, my engine flapped about a lot too. Then I had the engine mounts changed (OEM) as they started clicking. Engine still flaps about like a willy in the wind.
    Just how it is mate.

    Stattler said they would fit a BSH mount for 50 . If i had a dogbone mount im sure they fit that too for the price.
