I autocross. That probably doesn't mean a whole lot to many of you since I get the feeling there are more drag racers here than anything. Anywho, in the class I want to run, it specifically states that the only motor mounts I can use are stock, or ones made of the same material. So...that means rubber, no urethane, etc. Now, I know Mugen makes rubber bushings for Hondas that are 100% stiffer than the OE Honda bushings. Does anyone make motor mounts for the SR20DE that are made of rubber?

Thanks!

Matt, for some reason I think I read on se-r.net that JWT motor mounts are made of rubber. They are stronger than stock since it is solid robber compared to the webbed design of stock. Call and ask them to be sure though.

I do believe that the JWT mounts are rubber, but IMHO they are overkill for autox, then again, if you want something better than stock, I think they are the only aftermarket rubber mounts. What class are you running btw? I plan on doing autox also with my '91 SE-R. I think with the settup I have now, I still in stock class. I have eibach/pro-kit suspension, Stillen muffler, drop in K&N filter, ES "torque" mount kit, and STB. Does that sound like stock E class to you?

Your setup sounds like STS to me. Once you change your springs you are bumped from stock. But, the ES motormounts are illegal in STS technically. I don't think you will get protested, I wouldn't worry about it anyway.

Speaking of motor mounts. I was gonna call Energy Suspension today to order motor mounts for my car when I realized that they have the motor mounts listed for 91-94 only. I called ES and talked to a person who said that there is a difference in the mounts between 91-94 and 95+ but he wasn't sure what that difference is?! So has anyone put ES motor mounts (full set) on 95+ sentra preferably 99 sentra se? TIA

they are the same. 91+ I think the jwt mounts are harder than rubber ones (ie not rubber) and they do not have any holes to let them move around like the stock ones. I think nismo might make some, but they would have to be imported, might not work, and most importantly, expensive as ****. I have seen these mounts, felt these mounts, and if they are rubber, I would be surprised b/c these things are as hard as urathane

didn't know that bushings and mounts would put me in another class. but some friends insist I try auto crossing or timed track racing. these guys were 1/4 mile racers but now love this track stuff. sounds cool but also puts alot of stress on the car. ok so call me a pussy but my car is my daily driver. can't afford to break it up.

Jason,

I think that technically urethane motor mounts are illegal in street prepared class. Which would put you in prepared, modified, or street mod. That's why I want to go with rubber. As long as the mounts remain made of the same material as stock, that's OK for stock, Street touring, and street prepared classes. As long as you don't go to a National Tour ot Prosolo, you'll be fine.
However, I'll be doing a few national SCCA events and don't want to be protested.

Thanks for the info guys. I'll call JWT soon.

Matt
