Engine Mount Help

Recommended Posts

While I had the engine out of my '06 OB 2.5i I noticed that it is secured to the cradle via the puck like water filled mounts that Subaru used for a few years.


My question is when they fail (which they tend to do over time) am I able to swap on the the older square style mounts? Do all EJ25x engines use the same mounts?

My 2005 Outback had the one piece plastic mounts shown in the top pic. I was an idiot and broke both when I removed the engine. (They tend to break when you leave the bolt in and use an engine hoist) I switched mine for the older STi style Group N 2 piece mount. The benefit I can see is the steel bracket looks stronger than the plastic and the rubber portions can be purchased from Rock Auto for $20 each brand new. As long as you have the steel brackets it's a very cheap upgrade over stock mounts. They bolted directly up and fit perfectly with no issues when the engine was re-installed. Highly recommended if you have to take an engine out anyway.
