Engine mounts

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, looking for recommendations on engine / gearbox mounts for my proposed 5efhte ep95.

I’ve had issues with aftermarket mounts before being too hard and having to remove them due to excessive vibration. I also found standard too soft on my gt starlet. So looking for something in between. What’s everyone using and are they the same as ep82 / ep91 mounts?

My aftermarket ones were not powerflex, not sure who made them. 

Cheers

just putting this option out there if you can't find any ready made ones to match your needs...you could always get stock ones and pack them with polyurethane ..it comes in different grades, so you can choose to suit your needs

lots of information/vids on the net on how to go about this

Brooks Racing Development can make you bushes in a choice of different grades of poly, you can get him on Facebook, tell him I sent you  :)

i contacted brooks and they indicated that 75A is the softest they offer 

 

75A is the same as power flex

 

i currently have powerflex and the vibration is crazy

You would have to get custom made poly mounts made with a lower shore compound.

I have red JD tuning mounts in my 85, they are 65A i believe.

I once tried to make my own with a 2 part liquid compound, but ended up not setting correctly.

How are you finding those daniel? I think one/many of my mounts are worn but I'm not keen on having more vibrations
