    Why do people go with hasport or AZ all the time, arent the oem rubber motor mounts made for the engine good enough? what are the benefits of having an aftermarket mount kit?

    I just hate the vibrating of the car with the more solid ones.

    i used OEM mounts, but i need to replace 3 of them, so either way it vibrates like hell.

    People use the aftermarket mounts so that they don't have to do any custom work. If you use OEM mounts for a b-series swap (I assume that is what you're talking about), you have to reweld the mount locations in the engine bay.

    Also, the aftermarket mounts are much stiffer, this will keep your motor from moving around in the bay and will reduce the evils of wheel hop.

    All my oem ones were worn out or broken, worth replacing them imo.

    I used OEM mounts for my ZC swap. I think I am going to pick up some mount inserts to stiffen them up though.

    i got ls mounts in my 91 ef hatch..with a custom made front mount...u gotta remember that a b16 probably has almost twice the hp of ur previous motor...and its in a really light car..so there is always gonna be vibration...mine has vibration but its not bad at all..i actually wanna put stiffer inserts in it...helps for the launch...anyways after a while ur gonna get used to the vibration and u wont even notice it....i also wanna put one of those engine dmpeners..has anyone seen these?? ive heard nothin but good things about em and they are only like 100 bux

    I had my mounts re welded in my rex. I was told the stock mounts are fine. My friend is running 500hp in his with the stock mounts and his engine sits just fine. Dont the poly mounts send more vibes into the car though?

    Yeah using inserts will most likly increase vibrations. But hell Im young I can put up with it, when I want a easy ride Ill get a Volvo. Speaking of inserts Ive heard of people using the epoxy stuff used for attatching a wind shield to a car to fill there motor mounts. Seems like a pretty easy cheap thing. Just an Idea.
