Best Engine Mounts

After going K04 it is really obvious that I need new engine mounts due to wheel hop. I've searched through this and other sites and still have a couple of questions.


1. I plan to replace all the engine mounts. I notice some people only replace one. Wouldn't replacing all three with the same design result in less vibration?

2. Does anyone have a DIY?

3. What brand is best. I only knbow of VF engineering and BSH. Are there others?

Im currently selling VF motor mounts both engine and trans if your interested. They have exactly 202 miles on them and are practically brand new.

Funny, I switched from VFs to the 034s. Much smoother on a daily basis. I am still using the VF pendulum and opted not to install the 034 subframe mount as I've heard tons of bad feedback. The side mounts are good though.

I recall someone saying a BFI mount insert caused enough vibration to fool the knock sensor into pulling timing =X.

Which part failed? I haven't seen any failures of the engine mounts, just the subframe mount.

What is the vibration like? Does it come through the steering wheel or the chassis? It can't be as bad or annoying as the wheel hop induced viration.

Are there any dynamic engine mounts availale like the new Porsche 911s have? They are torque dependant. This results in them being soft like rubber around town but stiff like urethane when you are dogging it.
