Interested, pending the price point.
As you say, simple bracket + using bushings from other parts should keep costs pretty competitive.

RS needs some new engine mounts. I'm thinking I can donate the WRX's ones.

What are your thoughts on the longevity of these pieces?
UMI Performance makes mounts similar to these for the 1st gen CTS-V. And before they started making these, a guy on cadillacforums.com made some that were basically the same thing. I don't know how many sets of them he sold, or how many UMI has sold, but I have yet to see anyone post of an issue with them.

And if there is an issue, it should be pretty easy to pull out one side at a time and replace the bushings.

I'd be ALL OVER these if you made them... I've been slacking horribly at getting some Group-Ns, and these would be my choice they were available.

This is awesome, I have always wondered when someone would come out with a simple, low cost engine mount replacement. Can't wait to see the production version!

Thanks,
Rick

Interesting. Kind of like the WRC mounts- sure will make changing a clutch easier, and should fit the BRZ too. I'd test some.

Group N engine mounts

Kartboy pitch stop

Motion of engine at startup 0.65".

New setup:
Test engine mounts from MAW with soft bushings installed
Group N trans mount
Kartboy pitch stop

Motion of engine at startup 0.35".

Surprisingly not harsh. Can you feel it? Yes. Is it obnoxious? No.

As I said video is forthcoming. Oh, and I have some pics too.


So you guys wait until after I find a new job and no longer design and manufacture engine mounts to start making/testing engine mounts?! I could have been useful.

Now I'll have to wait until you guys decide to produce an active rear differential so I can develop the software and calibrate it for you.

I too would be all over these, especially if cost is comparable to groupN. I would rather support you guys!

You haven't gotten any because you spend more time on a bicycle than in a Subaru. Bicycles don't use engine mounts

You should test the msi solid mount movement for ****s and giggles. Those ones are pretty simple though for a bushinged mount. Not go out and make a less complicated trans mount.

That's on the to-do list as MSI would like for us to test it as well. Time is the factor on this though. we've been pretty busy. Last I checked we have 8 engines in the queue, and a new one showed up this afternoon.

If you need to have someone test these in an SVX let me know.
