Default Polyurethane motor mount's worth the money?

Well pulling my motor the motor mount's look trashed, and i didn't like the 4-5inch's of travel when moving the transmission around.

OEM style motor mounts are about $50

these Polyurethane mount's are $95


Is it worth the extra $45? im not seeing the gain from stiffer motor mounts other then making the car shake like hell.

well im just wanting to know if its worth the extra cash.

ive read a few guy's say when launching the car, it feel's more "firm" less "slack"

dunno how that translates though haha.

all the solid mount's ive seen raise the engine 1/2-1" so im not really wanting that.

plus I already have the polyurethane tran's mount.
(my buddy that helped me on the transmission swap said that when he installed it, it made the car vibrate like crazy, im thinking because my stock motor mount's where toast...)

Solid mounts...hahhahahah...anyways, the PU mounts do take up extra slop, that will however trasmit more NVH into the passenger compartment. Not totally unliveable though unless you are sensitive to that type of thing.

I'm running Energy on mine right now. Definately feel the engine and drive train. You can almost tune an engine with the feel and can tell if something going on with the tranny, driveshaft and rear, Takes some of the hit/miss out of the "Buttometer". It is close to being like solid mounts!!!!!!

or you can be like me and fill the motor mounts with window adhesive it will stiffen up the factory motor mounts a lot and its cheaper than poly mounts. Using your resources FTW!

I ran the polys for years and liked them I did not see much more vibrating then what I had before but there was some. Did I see any real difference in the way the car ran no did it feel better when I launched the car no. would I buy them again over stock any day. and the solid mounts I had to switch too dropped the engine it didn't raise it any

I already have the tran's mount.

Like i said when we did the transmission swap we installed it, and it made the hole damn car vibrate, so i think it threw off the line of the motor to rear end.

I dont know how much truth there is to this but I've heard if you have poly trans mounts, you cant have poly motor mounts or vice-versa
