Group N or perrin motor mounts?

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure I have a broken driver side engine mount. Lately been getting a loud clunk when letting off the throttle after some spirited driving. I'm going to check it out this weekend while I'm doing my oil change but was curious if anyone had either mounts and what they thought of them.

I wasn't as worried about the price as much as how they worked. I had a set of super stiff poly mounts on my starion years back and it added ALOT of nvh inside the car. Rattled everything. I see the perrins are softer then the ones I had on my previous car but was curious to hear from someone that had them installed or had installed the group n and how they felt as well.

FWIW, I just got my car back and went with OEM mounts on both sides of the engine and the main tranny mount. I went with a Group N on the pitch stop, and I'm not sure if it's because they're new or it's wicked cold in the mornings, but it's very audible. Not annoying, it's still nice, but it's much louder than my old OEM mounts and Group N tranny mount. I did finally kick that LWFW to the curb, so my gear chatter is finally gone, so that's nice too.

Sadly long gone. I sold it back in 05 and the new guy told me he was making over 400whp before he t boned a lady in a caravan and totaled the car. Worst part was the insurance company only gave him 1k for the car. Then it get parted it on the starquest site. Took me 2 years to build and about a week to tear it apart and sell the pieces. Was a sad day.
