This mount was more of a pain because it was harder to reach the bolts and the engine had to be shifted a little to get everything to line up. With a lift, this was not too bad but it would be harder on jack stands at home for sure.
With a little bit of massaging, we got the final mount in place and gave everything a final tightening.
With the new mounts in place, it was time to go for a test drive. The first thing we noticed was there is definitely an increase in vibration, but it is mostly just at idle. Driving at higher rpm driving the difference was not as obvious over stock. There was a lot less drivetrain snatch and this made the car drive smoother with less jerkiness. Shifting was improved as well. Wheel-hop was totally absent and the car put down traction better when the clutch was dumped. Hard starts were much much smoother.
Despite being a soft urethane, we felt that the Hasport mounts controlled engine movement an order of magnitude better than the worn stock parts and most likely would be a huge improvement over new stock parts as well. If you are looking for a solid replacement motor mount with the least amount of increased vibration over a stock mount, the Hasport mount is for you. The fact that it’s heavy duty and improves performance as well is icing on the cake!
