Motor mount kits?

Has anyone completely redid their motor mounts? My front bounces hard when spinning out, and I can feel vibration in the wheel while regular driving.

I'm looking to just redo the setup. I don't really need any of the steel brackets, only the rubber cushions, but if the kit has it all thats fine.

Any idea for sites or manufacturers? How easy is it to do on your own? I dont have a lift, or engine crane, only some jack stands and a jack.

Innovative or ESP!
You can def do this on your own with hand tools and a floor jack and stands. Drivers side will be easiest, then front, then tranny, and rear will be a bitttttchhhhhh!!

Re: Motor mount kits?

Innovative mounts seem to be too stiff, they don't offer the street 60a series, only 75a track. I don't want mad vibrations in my DD, I just want to avoid wheel hop as much as possible.

Would going OEM mount replacements, with energy inserts be a good idea? Can I get away with just putting in inserts, or should I go ahead and just replace all the mounts also? Trying to save a little money hah.

I question these only cause they seem too cheap to be any good.

Energy Suspension 16.1103 Motor Mount Inserts - Honda Prelude 92-01

EDIT: I'm just going to go with the innovative mounts, I've read some reviews, after a couple weeks the vibration drops, and it's only slight at idle, but the the solid feel and avoiding wheel hop, I'll take it.

Re: Motor mount kits?

I read like 6 pages of a thread at honda-tech. This is what I got out of it;

The mount installation is that of any other, the drivers side is the easiest, tranny is next, and the rear is the toughest. You can install all 3 without removing anything more then your air intake. It will take 2 people usually, using a jack and a pipe or crowbar to wedge the engine back and forth to line up the holes.

As for vibrations, this is where I was most concerned. I've read repeatedly that the energy inserts are worse, and cause more vibrations then the innovative mounts, same goes for a torque damper. You wont feel engine movement, but you will feel the vibration. While driving, there is none, or so close that you wont notice. At idle, there will be a slight vibration. It will be bad for the first 2 weeks, and then it'll lessen more and more, until finally its minimal, and you wont even notice it (half of it is you getting used to it). To reduce the idle even further I found a tighening sequence to let the engine sit properly, along with turning up the idle on the engine, the higher it is the less it'll vibrate. I'll probably set mine around 1200.

The pro's about these are the solidness of them. It will feel like a whole new car, you can feel the engine when you're driving, there wont be wheel hop when taking off or redlining it, and it wont damage your exhaust.

What pushed me is that I'm about to get my exhaust installed, and I don't want to risk damaging my hytech rep header because of wheel hop. I DD my car, but I'm also hard on it, joy of an h22a.

I was first worried about passengers and how'd they act to the vibrating. Then I was wondering why the **** I was concern about what other people thought lol. So in the end I'll trade a little bit of vibration at idle, for a solid, dependable, driving experience.

IMO: If you're easy on your car, just go OEM. If you use and abuse it, even as a DD, to innovative. ;)

Re: Motor mount kits?

Cool looking foward to it, my main reason for getting these is to avoid wheel hop. Do you get any still when taking off?

Re: Motor mount kits?

i havent really dumped it yet off the line. but when im in first just kick it at like 10 mph it just chirps the tire and then hooks. where as my stock mounts it would just spin like crazy. but as far as wheel hop mine never has.

Re: Motor mount kits?

Do new mounts actually make it harder to burn out? Since the engine isn't lifting as much as it normally would?
