What engine and trans mounts are you guys using? Trying to find the one with the most motorsport oriented. I was thinking torque solutions or cusco?

I run Cusco and have zero complaints so far. I also have a car with the Group-N mounts if you are looking for something more streetable.

I've only dealt with Cusco mounts. the Torque Solutions pretty much looks identical to the Cusco. MSI ones are awesome, I think the lower the engine down a little as well.

I have the Cusco's on my XP car and have run them for 3 years now with zero complaints. If I were to do it again I'd go with the MSI units as they are lighter.

Why not make a solid mount. Make a x-member that bolts straight to the tranny. Save some weight.

I just haven't gotten around to fully custom subframes yet.

The msi mounts are amazing for performance and stiffness. And they come with a lifetime warranty. When was the last time you saw a race part with a warranty?

We have used the cusco mounts on our race car in the past but with equal length headers we tend to burn out some of the bushings.

It's not a sub frame, just a solid mount using the factory attachment points.
I'll post pics of the one I am going to build shortly for a guys racecar in OKC. Simple and easy.

Here are a few pictures I took of the cusco engine and transmission mounts







These cusco ones are good bang for the buck, but the MSI ones definitely look a lot better.
