Default 2.5i Pitch Mount

What are your thoughts on the GroupA pitch mount on a 2.5i? Has anybody running this felt a difference in anything?

Get motor mounts instead. You will not need a pitch stop. www.rallispec.com has great pricing.

Motor mounts on a stock car are great for keeping the motor a little more stuck in place, but you'll feel more vibration in the cabin. Regardless, if you don't mind this, it's a good upgrade to put a little more power down to the wheels. Not like you'll notice the difference with a 2.5i though....

As for the pitch stop comment above; If you're going to get motor mounts, you might as well get the pitch stop. Do it if you're going to do it. Just because you get harder motor mounts doesn't mean that the engine won't pitch in position still. Under hard acceleration it definitely will.

Engine mounts first. But if you want something to fiddle around with to install yourself, the pitchstop is fine I guess. You may want to get one of those beefier units they sell (granted more expensive)

That was a steel depending on how old they are. I paid around $150 at Flatirons tuning for the Group N mounts. Here's just a helpful hint make sure you use your stock plates from your stock mounts.

I disagree with the first statement. You will notice a difference with the engine mounts. If you want to notice even more of a difference install the tranny mount as well. I am running all of the above.

I agree with the second statement. If your going to do it, do it all. I would have done the Pitch mount but they were out of stock at the time of my purchase.

Excuse me for asking, but since I haven't seen it come up in here yet, what is the benefit of going with hardened motor/tranny mounts? I know they reduce movement, but what does that translate to in drving feel?

Less motor twist or movement translates to power getting to the wheels faster. Think of it kinda like better throttle response.

with the engine or pitch mount installed, can our little 2.5L motors make the car shift side to side like mustangs?

also, is a tranny mount recommended for slushboxes?

Installed the GroupA Pitch Stop on my '05 RS, performance wise I noticed nothing, however it looks cool and I didn't really notice a change in NVH aside from a little louder engine braking. In retrospective I would have saved the coin to invest in suspension parts or tuning books.
