    I just got my b18c and the rear engine mount is shot. Also the two lower torque mounts on my d16z6 are shot. So my question is do I need to order both of these. Energy Suspension Motor Mounts/Motor Mount Inserts: ENS-16-1106G - summitracing.com

    Energy Suspension Motor Mounts/Motor Mount Inserts: ENS-16-1105G - summitracing.com

    Or would these work for the rear and just use the one from summit for the lower.
    NOPI Online Store

    That way I have the 2 lower for the original and the one new for the new motor. Also has anyone used these? Im guessing you just remove all the old material and put these in place? I think I just confused my self so I applogize.

    The first one you listed is the one you want for the lower. You dont remove the material from the torque mount. If you look closely at the insert you will see that it slips over the material already present in the mount. Im not sure how great these things work. I am going to buy these torque mounts for my civic si eBay Motors: Civic Integra Billet Torque mounts Avid B16 B18 B20 Stk (item 110092825719 end time Feb-25-07 14:35:26 PST)

    The kit you were looking at from nopi will take care of the rear mount only, it appears. They probably work pretty well for the price, urethane is some tough shit and that is what is used in all expensive aftermarket mount kits.

    i prefer the giant vibrator to engine/drivetrain slip.

    hockey puck motor mounts for the win.

    That would explain the vibes I have at low spped than i guess. Looks like when money comes in i am going to get some new mmounts and get rid of the inserts.

    I agree I would rather have vibration then have my drivetrain flopping around in my engine bay!!! Power is no good if its not getting to the ground.

    the vibration means the inserts are doing their job.

    You either have the comfortable rubber factory mounts, or a more ridgid racey type mount. Urethane inserts or mounts are both going to have vibration but the benefits they give are worth it to me.
