Same with the Steeda with the black 88 durometer inserts. I never tried the softer inserts, but after a few weeks the vibes haves dropped unless you right around 2k rpm

Turbo Tech racing actually priced their upper motor mount for the ST and have been shipping them, where as it sounds like Steeda hasn't sold a single one of their passenger side engine mounts based on not listing a price for it.

I don't currently have a stake in the game, just trying to consider my options to help reduce/ eliminate wheel hop and powertrain movement.

I wonder if the Steeda side mount will fit the na motors?

Corksport just came out with a sweet design for the side mount on the MS3.... It looks like it could be an option.

http://www.corksport.com/corksport-m...tor-mount.html



It uses the 2 bolt design like the NA.

Probably not, the TTR doesn't, the ST mount uses 3 bolts, the NA mount uses 2, but if they could just drill different holes it might work, use your connections.

Unless we start pushin serious power are we really going to need side motor mounts? How much more of a difference would they make?

For the ST at least it's been said that it helps in conjunction with a rmm to almost completely eliminate the powertrain movement that causes axle and wheel hop as well as reducing or eliminating the clunk or thud from the motor reaching the limits of it's travel and the mounts hitting something which sounds a lot like breaking the car.

The stock mounts are pretty soft for NVH purposes, but that doesn't do you any good if you start pushing closer to the 200 hp mark at the crankshaft.

That's basically what I was saying just in question form lol

Hey guys.. I did some searching on the forum and I am trying to see how the RMM can be replaced. Is it a b!tch to do? I am pretty mechanically inclined however I like to know what I am doing before I do it :)

Thanks!

Guys are already at that point with just an intake and exhaust, well at least the 5MT guys were.

The stock mounts are a hinderance even at stock power levels on the N/A on anything other than smooth roads with the tcs turned off. The side mount might not be as necessary with 160 hp (necessary to replace it that is), however doing so would greatly restrict engine movement.
