Do these cause a lot of interior noise/ vibration? I recently put some on a 1971 mini cooper(which has a b16a1) and the cab rattles quite a bit.. But then again all those cars do. I would post some pics on here but it has a b series...

Any way, my 99 civic is my dd and i like it quiet when I am driving for a few hours at a time. Thanks for the input. I guess I should also mention my build will be under 280hp are these even necessary?

Poly mounts come in a variety of hardness from 60 - 100 (60 being close to OEM plush and 100 being close to that of a bowling ball) If you do decide to get poly mounts but don't want the excessive vibrations, get the poly mount/insert for the rear tranny mount as this is a vital one to minimizing movement. As for the needs of 250hp, I'm not sure if having only the rear tranny mount will suffice

I just put poly mounts in my car (D16Z6).....built motor. I used Energy Suspension poly mounts....
You notice it when you first get it done, but I've had them in for about 2 months now and I don't even remember what the old ones felt like..i.e. you get used to them.

Good luck!

I had some Hasports in my EF and I would consider it comfortable. You don't really feel it when you're cruising, mainly when your just idling at a light or something you mean hear something here or there....and I had no carpet in mine so the car was a bit loud lol. I'd go for them but try to stay in the 60s, cause as EF9 said - they are softer and closer to OEM.

The noise isnt unbearable and after a while you wont even notice what little noise it did create to begin with. I have a solid driver and tranny mount, but the rear is OEM with ES inserts. I didnt want to put the rear because I didnt want vibrations but I regret it. Stiff mounts are AMAZING and the response you get is much better.
Just do it, get the solit poly mounts, you wont regret it!

Oh and inserts dont do shit. You think they do when you throw em on but TBH they didnt do much in terms of motor rocking and overall feel. The good thing is they help prevent your mounts from breaking.

Agreed. You wont feel it at all when cruising.

3rd post I know but IDGAF.


OEM EK driver mounts SUCK. Mine literally separated the gel filled bowl from the bracket within 2 days of being boosted with no WOT pulls. Ill try and dig up some pics, so yes I def recommend them for anything over 100wtq haha. I had about 130wtq when it snapped.

I have those bad boys. Driver and rear was a perfect fit, tranny needed the holes to be bored out bigger.

Hey Dark, how long have you had those ebay mounts? And do you have any engine bay shots of how the motor sits with the mounts?

It vibrates worse than stock. At idle mostly. It isn't too excessive though. You get use to it.

Thanks, is it still a pain when the motor is out of the car(im doing a side build) or it is the location that makes it a "b" either way?

My 99 civic lx has a y7 now, I am building a d16a6 w/ y8 head. Will I be able to order the after market mounts for my year car and model and be ok? Thanks, basically do the motors have the same mounting locations(Yes I am shitty at putting thoughts onto a keyboard).

I repped all you guys that I quoted. Thanks

I filled my oem mounts with 60a. As stated above, barely noticeable, after a few days lol At first you'll say WTF! Only gripe now is the rear view mirror is almost useless while cruising. Looks like youre driving threw a earthquake when you look at it lol

I never ran a 250hp car, but mine with only ~150hp and old stock mounts was terrible, the intake was hitting the firewall, 3 times on every launch, and once on every shift. Now hte car feel more solid.

i've had those for about a year. they still look new.
i just changed my clutch last week, and inspected mounts while doing it.

engine 'sits' the same as stock

Theres the pics! haha I have teh exact same ones, and yeah the motor sits the same.


One thing I would recommend though is to get a bigger bolt for the driver side mount. The one supplied is a little thin and it wiggles around. You can keep it, no big deal but id rather have one that fills in the comple hole.

Just to add to the list, I went with Innovative mounts at 60a. I'll be getting the front OEM torque mounts and filling them with a 60a polyurethane casting compound (McMasters Link)--with straws to soften them up a bit, per research on this forum--to complete the engine mounts. IIRC, nobody sells polyurethane torque mounts for my EG, which is why I went with the DIY route.

Thanks a lot! Thats good to know because as someone stated earlier, the driver side mounts for EKs are terrible. My car clunks often and I didn't want to buy another OEM mount so this can happen again. Those mounts look pretty solid though, especially for the price! Rep'd.

That's what she said :devil:

Seriously though, why is window weld not brought up more often in these threads? $5 to do all mounts. You can make it as hard or soft as you want. Oil resistant. Temp resistant. Oh, and you can do it to a busted ass mount and it's good as new.
