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.
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.
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!!!!!!

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
