This is what I have so far, I will update with more videos/pics of what I do regularly, hopefully with something better than my phone camera, lol.
By "more usable power and torque," don't you mean simply quicker power delivery (no lag time) and firmer shifts? Once you're making power, that mount won't do anything but give you a literal buzz.I'm not sure what Jak is going on about, lol, but yes, the vibration is the Upper engine mount. Instead of absorbing the vibrations like a stock (soft) mount would, the TurboTechRacing mount holds the engine in place better for more usable power and torque. That vibration has to go somewhere, so it ends up everywhere else in the car. Feels kinda nice sometimes, but I know I have to keep double checking all my nuts and bolts to make sure they're in place.
Yeah, it definitely gets power to the ground faster. I remember it was a huge improvement when I first used even a poly dogbone mount and I would break the tires loose all the time because the throttle snapped so quickly. Shifts were much nicer.It just helps get the power to the ground faster, doesn't add anything else really. Like you said, mostly driving experience mod.
Thanks, Smurf, I really appreciate it!
Ah, ok. I'll check it over just to make 100% sure, but I can't imagine engine bay heat and plastic will mix very well over time. I've never seen a plastic motor mount before.The mount itself is plastic with rubber bushings, if my eyes did not deceive me.
