Replacing engine/transmission mount

I'm at 101k with stage 1 and my mechanic is recommending to replace both and my sepertine belt. What are good mounts or is OEM fine? I'm being charged 320 to have them install it. Not sure if that's fair. But 109 for the engine mount and 85 for the tranny mount seems ok.

If you want a performance upgrade consider poly mounts or even the street density 034 motor/trans mounts. They will be stiffer and put power down better than oem.

$320 seems high. It takes less than an hour to do both sides.

Thank you man! Really appreciate you. They said 4-5 hours to install both mounts and I was immediately skeptical about this.

Passenger side mount literally takes 20m.

Driver side, a little longer cause you have to remove the airbox, battery and battery tray but in reality.. its not more than an hour, maybe 1.5hrs to do both sides.

Thank you for your feedback mate! What should I tell my mechanic? That I read people are installing these in no more than 2 hours? Appreciate you.

Go to a different mechanic all together. Either this guy doesn't know what he's talking about or is trying to rip you off a little. Either way, go somewhere else.

What do you think is a decent price to install them both?

I've charged people $100 to do both and felt bad about it. No more than 100-150.
