Default how about filling mounts w/ polyurethane?

when i had my crx, a lot of people recommended filling in the engine/transmission mounts w/ polyurethane(like what you use on windows and whatnot). it worked extremely well on my crx and i was just wondering if anybody has done this on their subaru and if so, what did you think of the improvement?

Not to knock on your thread but....Why are a bunch of people posting stuff about tranny's in the Normally Aspirated forum? There is a Transmission forum, specifically for these kinds of things.

That's a pretty good idea. I had thought of something similar. Not sure what substance, but it did cross my mind.

Oh, and ask a mod to move this to the trans forum. I'm sure there is going to be more people over there with comments and suggestions.

i wasn't sure because i would do this to the engine and trans mounts, so it kindof crosses into 2 categories. when i did this mod on my crx, i used stuff from home depot used to seal windows. it was some type of polyurethane in a tube that you put in a caulk gun. it worked exceptionally well, but i also didn't have the option of finding any aftermarket mounts for that car either, so i don't know how good it was compared to real aftermarket ones.

A lot of the guys over at b15sentra.net have been doing this to fill their motor mounts. Some are using 3M Window Weld which should be available at most hardware stores. Others are using actual polyurethane purchased online. There are a lot of good threads on b15sentra.net pertaining to this topic.

From what I have seen of the motor mounts, it doesn't look like it would be that beneficial.....but I could be wrong.

I think the tranny mounts, especially the automatics could really use the added stiffness.

liquid nails works well for that kind of stuff. I don't think the design of our motormounts would really take the goo like the hondas did.
