    Everything pretty much clips right in with no mods required.

    ebay mounts lol! damn thats a shame I wouldn't even had said that the price itself says it all. Don't be fooled by that false advertisement talking about best mounts and never need to buy another mount again. Go with Hasport or Arizona Race billit mounts aint no other mount that can compete with them Avid billit mounts are also an option.

    I bought mounts off ebay (cheapo generic ones) and they worked out just fine. No fitment issues (other than actually getting the engine in the bay) to speak of.

    I bought mounts off of ebay but they were innovative billet mounts. I got the 75a bushings and they are good and stiff.

    i know of people that use them and they work just fine..the only problem i had is the drivers mount hole wasnt aligned with the hole on the frame,it took some convincing to get the bolt through..but they hold up nice,and stiff
    how long have you been running them??

    I did a complete rebuild and swap on my customers car which he has 2000 civic Si and he brought me billit innovative mounts and damn those things required me to do some mods to the brackets supplied to make them fit properly and the bolts they supply are worthless not even grade 8 bolts they use grade 5. Other than that they look nice being that they are billit mounts. Cheap mounts creat engine sag and vibration which most people don't even notice but do some research and see whats up.

    Must have been for the wrong application or something. I got ef b series mounts and they went right in and they didnt come with shitty grade 5 bolts. I have zero complaints.

    Well cause for your application you don't get bolts or brackets thats only for newer models. I'm not saying they are bad mounts just something I definately wouldn't go with Arizona Race or Hasport are just known for great mounts :thumbsup:

    I guess those things with threads were not bolts. Please help me figure out what they are. :confused:
