Motor Mount Time...

Hello-

I've seen alot of talk about motor mounts...yes, I need one!

My question to you is which one is best? We have a few options.

Pedro's
Wevo
Reflin

I want a solid feeling mount. I don't track the car, but I drive it like a Porsche. Stock is not an option because it's crap. I don't really worry about a "rough" ride.

Which one is going to give the best performance?

thanks!

Kyle

I have the Wevo motor mount and like you don't mind the ride. But my girlfriend hates it so within the next 2-3 weeks I plan on changing back to an OEM mount. We're both in Dallas if you want to get a deal on my Wevo. PM me if interested.

A 987 mount is MUCH more stout and sturdy without rattling your fillings loose at idle. Give it a look as this is what most of the Boxster Spec race cars are using. If your water pump is original you may want to replace it also "while you are in there".

That's a Wevo mount. You'll find the exact same photo and description on the Windrush Evolutions website.

Stay tuned!

Go Pedro

I installed the Pedro mount and I have nothing but great things to say. It's been a year and it's been so much better......Plus he's helpful and a true enthusiast. I encourage supporting him!

Got the WEVO installed. My stock mount was pretty trashed and while it is a stiffer mount, it feels much better!

Thanks to Timothy for the great deal! If anyone needs the mount carrier I've got one....
