    I'm sure the engineered mount is better, but for $30, I'm satisfied with the 75a red ones. Mine have adjusted some and broken in. Yeah, there's vibration, but I don't mind.

    Honestly these bushings are great and do the same thing. For $30 bushings they work great. I have had mine in for over a year and no issues and no wheel hop

    What do you mean better? In what terms? Thinking out loud...

    Both do the same thing.

    Carbon Engineering makes an adjustable mount. I would say that's the only improvement. OK, it looks nicer, although green is cool.
    Is it better in tensile strength? I do not know as neither (OEM or CE) would say that.

    I used simply polyurethane filling twice on my cars and it worked fine. Hence, I believe the 30 USD mounts will do the same. And that's what we are after. Less engine play (that may cause the flex pipe to brake prematurely) and puts less wear overall on the exhaust system. Not to mention other motor/transmission mounts.

    Got the motor mounts installed today I went with these:

    I didn't even try to crack the 19mm bolt, I just took out all the 14mm bolts and dropped the mount out. I was surprised at how little vibration there was even in gear holding the brake on. They say even that small amount of vibration will work it's way out after a couple hundred miles. First thing I noticed driving is that direct connected to the motor feel when hitting the gas. The stock mounts are just squishy rubber.

    Those look nice. Price is right.
    I'm going to wait until SXTH has a sell again and buy there dogbone.

    So taking out the 14mm bolt was easier you think? Any trimming needed with that bushing?
    I'm surprised it doesn't vibrate much being 75a durometer but maybe it just fits better.

    Didn't have a 19mm wrench and I wasn't taking off the hot pipe to use a socket. Getting the rear 14mm bolt on the bracket was a little difficult but not too bad. Vibes not bad at all and it's worth it for the connected feeling the car has now. No trimming needed, the new mounts slid right in.
