Default Group N Engine Mount Fitment Issues...NA related...

i'm having my headgasket/TB/cams replaced at the dealership right now. unfortunately, no time or tools to do this on my own.

anyway since the engine was being pulled i ordered up a set of the group n engine mounts. the tech working on the car called and told me that the mounts would not fit and that the plate/mount were for turbo applications only. i was under the assumption that the group n mounts fit all impreza's 02-07 and even furter back.

part #'s
D1010FE110
D1010FE120

car
03 OBS EJ251

i told him if it was a fitment issue, then reuse the old plate...would this reduce the function/performance of the mount at all? i know it's a bit beefier.

have anyone of you had fitment issues with your NA imprezas? any help would be appreciated. thanks.

i assume if he took the old one off and oriented the GroupNs the same way it would be obvious if they fit. he said it had something to do with the bends in the plate they didn't seat right on the cross member...

Yeah, just install yourself. All it takes is a floor jack. The only trick to the install is removing the pitch stop mount so the engine and tranny can shift forward/backward freely. Otherwise you'll never get the bolts back into the holes after you put the new ones on. This might have been the tech's mistake. I don't know... It's really an easy install for the most part.
