    Alright, for as long as i've owned my Si (1year now) the drivers side motor mount is missing one stud, the other stud is there, but no nut, so far so good though.. sitll ran koo times with it... ANYWAY

    i figured with my car about to be in the shop for all the trnany repairs and installs, i might as well spend the extra money and get ALL NEW motor mounts

    Here's what i've have found
    Spoon Sports - $368 - How good is it? i've heard that most spoon products are just like OEM but exceed OEM quality, is this a good upgrade?

    HaSports - $499 - A bit more than the spoon, but are they better than spoons?? is it worth the 5bills?

    I've also heard there is "place racing". . (not sure how you spell it) are theirs any good?

    1 - Who else is there that makes motor mounts
    2 - What would you NA Heads recomment?

    again, this is a 2000 civic si

    spoon = over priced shit (in this case, its actually cheaper, but no, i just dont like spoon shit)

    hasport has been the leader in mounts for awhile, i personally like them

    place racing - they're good, some ppl love em, some hate em.

    If i'm not mistaken hasport is a solid mouont, meaning it wont flex as much, you'll feel more movement in the engine, OEM is the way if you're just looking for something nice and good.. Engine mounts go bad from dead stop to 150mph runs in a city block long ordeal.

    i used place racing, not bad, no complaints from me but hasport seems to be the top dog of them all

    if the motormounts are rusted, i'm guessing it was a flood car or it sat in the snow forever.
