ok so i went to the part store and the 3m window weld was $18.00, really not that bad of a price but i only had $10 on me so i left empty handed....later while at a meijer (same as a super wal-mart) i noticed they had a bunch of different caulks in the home improvement section for sealing tiles, bathroom fixtures, ect... get to the end of the row and there is a product made by dap to seal roofs that is polyurethane and only $3.99

heres a link

Caulk Polyurethane -Black 10.1 Fluid Ounces : 18816 - Buy.com

would this stuff work or is it best to just grab up some 3m window weld

I can't find a density listed on the msds for the Dap Caulk to compare it to the density of the 3m Window Weld. If it were me, I'd stick with the window weld!

yeah i looked for a rating on it and couldn't find it. thought maybe someone might know. but 3.99 is always better than 17.99 :) .... might be a nice alternative if someone knew or could find out the hardness of it

eventually im sure i'll get to do the bling thing :) but for now while the motor is down and out for a while, i can manage to wait for it to cure as its going to be a few weeks before i even think of putting a motor back in. i think it should help alot as i also have e.s. lower torque mount inserts.

thanks for the help guys

Filling your motor mounts is just about the cheapest/best mod one can do personally. Difference in drivability is definitely noticeable.

You got a link to the Mcmaster page? I'd love to see exactly what you used!
mcmaster.com p/n 8644K18

There is a DIY on here and I have pics of the stuff and how it does in my build thread if Im not mistaken

I also just noticed that they sell aluminum epoxy that you get more of it than devcon interesting ( that was just a side note)
