I had broke the engine mounting for the 3rd times within 2 yrs as i had FI an NA ride
A workshop suggested change new engine mounting and add on a engine damper
B workshop suggested strengthen the engine mounting via silicon

What's the Pro and Con?
Any suggestion?
Thks for any input

mayb he shld get a real "Genuine/Original" mounting...
Replaced with genuine mounting all this while

I'm think of this also
Someone advised me no point going for engine damper
As it might leak oil sooner since my ride is a NA FI ride hence its original arent design for FI use
Unless i get alternative for ex. Evo engine damper and custom it onto my ride

TEFLON mounting on a daily ride..?? Sorry, I don;t sugest that... Don;t really like the vibrations... Even with Evo's mounting on the bottom front and rear, I already feeling the car vibration increases...

There are alot of BOTers having cars with 200++ ponnies out there. They are not using a damper... I suggest u to go for Evo's front and rear mounting and maintain the sides with Mitsu's/Proton's... So far worked quite well for me...

Feels the gear shift response too...
