Default Motor Mounts

[:I]Has anybody put new or heavy duty motor mounts on their GT's? Thought I read somewhere it makes wheel hop less of a problem. also less chance of breaking a mount. Anybody got any thoughts. I have a '03 GT with Stage 1, and a 5-speed with Hurst STS shifter.[8)]

do a search on motor mounts and I'm sure you'll get a few threads on it. [8] I just put in the Rex MM inserts. Not sure why, [:I] 'cause I didn't have any wheel hop issues with my auto tranny. Was just curious to see if they made a diff at the track or not. The jury's still out [:I] I think the 5sp have way more of any issue with this than the auto's.

Good luck! [8]

I think wheelhop comes from weak suspension. I have kw coilover rally racing front and rear and have no wheel hop with 255/40/17's.

ihave a billet upper motor mount from Hector at exhaustdepot.com it was made for the srt4 neon but fits our cars just fine. you will only want to replace the upper mount b/c if you replace the upper and lower you will break the trans mount over time. the upper is plenty for street use and whel hop is gone and there isn't too much vibration in the car.

thanks tommy

I have the Psi-Fi motor mounts and I am very happy with them. They eliminated my wheel hop. I also just ordered their traction busings

They are having a group buy if you order before Nov 12.

Some resent post show there mounts coming apart.


I dont know if there tractino setup fits the GT? IF it did it would be nice for the handling.
I dont know if the auto guys get as much hop? I know if you have a 5speed you will get plenty of wheel hop, especialy if you have done the spring mod or put in a stiffer wga cause the turbo spools up so much faster.

I experienced wheel hop at the track on first PT trip 2 weeks ago. 3 out of 5 runs. So I have ordered an upper motor mount to see if that will change things and improve time.

The lower control arms have the same part number for both the SRT-4 and the PT. This will even work on a NA if someone wanted to improve the ride.
