    Perrin Motor + Trans Mount Question

    Anyone have any reviews on the Perrin Motor Mounts and Trans mount? Looking at replacing my stock mounts but not sure what set-up to run. The Group N Mounts I think are to soft from what reviews say. If you have any reviews on the Perrin let me know. They are expensive and not sure if they are worth the price.

    I doubt the group N mounts are too squishy for you. The stock trans mount is super squishy and the group N is a great upgrade.

    Are you talking about the solid mounts? I don't suggest those on a DD.

    I kind of wish I never got them to be honest. Along with all the stiffer bushings...it's kind of loud and annoying now...

    I didnt think they were actually considered solid since they still have bushings unlike say MSI mounts. I could be wrong but I thought when I held a buddies there were still poly bushings. Still increased vibrations a good bit whether they were solid or not. But as you stated Group N should be plenty.

    They aren't a solid 1 piece like the MSI, but they are pretty dang solid. I ran them. I wouldn't say they increased vibrations a good bit, that's underselling it.

    From what I've been told, and I'm no expert, is that the Group N are good for a generally stock car. However somebody who has over 300hp/tq should look at something more solid than the Group N mounts. Is this true?? My car is not stock anymore and over the 300 range which is why I was considering the Perrins as I thought they were mid level?? Also, I don't mind the noise difference in the cab and the vibrations my old SI had solid mounts and I actually liked it a lot.

    Solid mounts make it worse. I personally don't mind it, just not on a DD.

    The solid mounts make your shifting incredibly harsh. It's not really something that's comfortable for a car that's driven a lot. 300hp/tq isn't really that much, plus the Group N holds up just fine with those numbers. I ran a Group N first and now it's on my wife's LGT and it's great.

    The power numbers are going to keep rising until I'm at the 400 range. With that being said do you think the Group N will hold up to those numbers? I'd rather do it right the first time then have to upgrade again later is all. I only know from reviews but if you have first hand experience that is perfect.

    Have you seen pictures comparing the Group N to stock? You know how you don't want to duplicated effort? I don't want to continually tell you that the Group N is more than good enough for your power levels. If you're pushing 400whp, you have a lot more things to be concerned about than your choice of trans mount.

    The motor mounts are fine too.
