rear motor mount upgrade?

this is the 2nd one i blew
there must be something to use that can hold more power and engine braking.

I did finally blow a couple original rears when we started running drag tires. That last jump to 500ftlbs didn't help either..

After trying a couple reinforcements to the stock mount it was time to try a diesel mount. It is nice just not for everyone. More vibration in the cabin ( with no balance shafts on 2.3) but most of a set of drag tires it is still together!

I have the 2 poly mounts and the Diesel rear mount, and the vibration is very minimal once the car is warmed up. I dont drive my car very hard, was just looking for crisper shifting, and I definently got that with these mounts.

You could fab up a top engine mount like I have seen some users do, with universal NRG "sock" type mounts. Pretty cool, depending on how well you fabricate it.

How do you find road and drive train noise? I have both the GS engine and trans mounts and I find road and drive train noise much more pronounced.

Shifting and power transmission is much better, although I still don't find shifting 'smooth'.....so, I'm thinking rear mount.

Genuine Saab's bits have really transformed my car to a point where I'm most impressed with it's performance, in particular the Nordic stage 3+, but I'm starting to think I want more.....

RBatsch, I really didn't noticed any increased drive train noise. Shifting for me is a lot smoother, albeit not as crisp as I thought, but pretty close. Where I notice it the most is quick shifts, and down shifting. I would still like to have a short shifter.... Nick

I put an engine dampener on mine between where you mount a 9k mount and the firewall, helped out a ton!
