a while back, i contaced a guy that sells motor mount inserts on mr2oc, about making some for our 6th gens. i figured it would be a great upgrade for anyone who has a gt or a swap. i got the first set of inserts a few weeks ago and instaled them this past weekend. they fit great and a nice upgrade over the stock mounts. you notice a lot more throttle response, smoother clutch engagement, as well as shifting, and you feel more connected with the engine. it should also greatly reduce wheel hop and help with traction becuase the motor wont rock back and forth as much as it does with the stock mounts. the other cool thing is that they insert over your existing mounts, so if for some reason you ever want to take them out, you can.

here is a pic of them installed on my car.

finally... here is a pic of the rear motor mount that i filled myself about 1yr ago. it worked well at first, but as you can see it didnt last long

last but not least, there is a really awesome Video review that an mr2 ower made about the mounts. i have to say that i pretty much agree with everything he said about them in the video. the install is a little bit different on our car then the mr2, but anyone with some basic tools can do the job. took me about 1-2hrs to do the whole thing.

direct link to the video:

link to the website that did the review:

link to the site/person that made these and will be selling them. all sales questions should be emailed to kirk:

i dont think so. but if you have a pic of some ST mounts, post them and we can compare to make sure.

these will fit any car with a GT transmission. kirk also makes mounts for the mr2, so if anyone has a swap with an mr2 tranny, im sure he can mix and match a motor mount set for you that will work (gt front, mr2 rear inserts).

i belive its 50bucks shipped.... but dont quote me on that. thats just what kirk was selling the mr2 mounts for. i know these were harder to make so i dont know if there will be any price different on those. ill try to ask him for sure next time i talk to him. but i would expect them to be in the same price range.

just taking a wild guess here, but the rear one looks the same as the GT. the front looks a little different tho.

i cant really see exactly what your front mount looks like but the rear one definitely looks the same to me as well

Hey Folks,

The price for the set is the same as the MR2 and Alltrac inserts, $50 shipped in the US.
All info can be found on my urethane motor mount insert webpage:

kirkosaurus.com

From the looks of those ST mounts the GT inserts should fit.

Mines are shot, vibrations like crazy, tons of wheel hope, hopeless jerking between shifting and annoying shimmy when accelerating in 1st and 2nd gear..


I'm sold, just ordered some smile.gif

What kind of condition do our stock ones need to be in? Mine are all still there just that the rubber isn't all one piece anymore.

Just a heads up, since the testing, fitting and varification was done just this week (thanks lagos!) it will probably be a few days until I get the first batch of these. That means they may not ship until early next week.

thanks,

hi,

This is in the FAQ on the urethane motor mount insert webpage.
Even if the rubber is completely torn out the inserts will hold everything in place.

i doubt he will because of how well these work already. these things are very beefy just the way they are. the engine stays very soild and you can definetly feel the mounts do their job. the whole car just feels so much more responsive then ever before. its an awesome upgrade, especially for a swap/trubo owner.

Ummmmm.....Hello! I need a couple of these.........Good job Lagos!

I'll be ordering these in short order. I was a bit skeptical while watching the video seeing as how they're inserts, but after seeing them fully installed I like the idea.
