Default Perrin Engine Mounts



Installation:

Installation of the mounts went like butter due to removable studs! This makes clutch changes so much easier as you don't have to jack the motor up all the way!

Usage:

The mounts are a bit stiffer than Group N mounts i had before on the car! They fall in between GroupN and Cusco Soild Mounts! Not to soft not to stiff where your teeth fall out

they are interlocked inside, and will not rip or break "per. Jeff"

Highly recommend this if you use GroupN or soild mounts to stiff for your daily driver!

ST rules state that it can't have more "volume" of metal than the stock mount and this one obviously does.

I've also got a set of the pre-production ones like Bariga and I must say that I also found them to be a quite pleasant upgrade from GroupN that are still not quite as rough as the hard mount options.

I've battled a driveline shudder on clutch engagement ever since I went to an ACT 6-puck and adding these mounts with a solid pitch stop has made a huge improvement. I previously had issues getting the car cleanly into 2nd gear on the 1-2 shift; even during daily driving the 2nd gear shift was always "mushy". Shifts into all gears now feel improved!

I ended up raising idle 100 RPM as per the instructions to smooth out a bit of vibration in the cabin, but my car is well modified and has cams and every other bushing in the book, so I don't think most people will find this neccesary.

Installation of these is eased by the removable stud/bolt, no doubt. Using a flex-head 1/4" ratchet with shallow 14mm socket made removing and installing the rearward bolts a snap. I did have to re-raise the engine a tad and use a pry bar to re-center the engine in the cradle after initially dropping it, but that's normal for the job.

Great product. Thanks Perrin!

Mine fit like a glove on my 98 and on my 10 STI. Really stiffened up the battle wagon and the STI instal was crazy easy. Well, as motor mounts go. Def recommend! It really helped put more confidence behind the wheel bc I didn't feel as much give. All in all the STI rumbled a bit more but it helps put the baby to sleep so I can't complain.

Ya, being a parent and an autocross junkie don't always go well together but I won this one! No couch for me!

Got the mounts as planned, one of the best choices I have ever made. Motor practically fell into place.

In my case extreemly easy (engine was already pulled out) but if that was not the case it would have still been easy seeing that you just need to lift the engine and set it back down after switching them. Not having a stud also drastically helps with pulling and re installing the engine.

Hi I have the Perrin engine mounts and pitch mount rod installed into my STI and was wondering if anyone else running this has experienced any sort of extra vibration at times? I was told it may be due to the more solid mounts but Im just wondering if it may be something different that I should be worried about?

Thanks.

I have all their engine and tranny mounts, I don't have hardly any vibration. The little there is is not something that would have caused worry. How serious is it?

It is pretty bad. It is not there all the time though. I can feel it though the floor and pedals.

It seems like these are a Must for new Builds. They better be as good as the Hype, cuz $600 for the Engine/tranny mount set is kinda steep!

Engine/Tranny Mount set:
Megan:$190
Group N:$230
Cusco:$320
Beatrush$400
Hard race:$410
Perrin:$600!!!
