    Fill the OEM mounts with 3M Window Weld, it will make them stiffer than OEM but softer (and cheaper) than say Hasports or Avids.

    :withstupid:My old setup was a supercharged gsr swap with window welded mounts. It worked great. I never tore a mount, and the engine didn't translate nearly the vibration into the cabin as my current setup with Hasports does.

    Energy suspension makes "Motor Mount Inserts" (install into existing mounts) that will reset your engine to the right location and will firm them up nicely.. Highly recommended, I've used them in 2 different hondas with great results. Mounts are much firmer and wheel hop is greatly reduced.

    inserts on the 2 sides and rear mount should be good enough.

    If you are not looking to spend the money for Innovative or Hasport then definitely go with the Energy suspension inserts. They are under $50 and work well.
