solid motor mounts

An acquaintance of mine suggested that I replace my rubber motor mounts with solid ones and that I would get a little more torque. Has anyone had any experience with these? Also, who sells them?

Depends on the year the 70-72 ones look to be more plyable then the 73+.

Can't say I've been in a 914 with solid engine mounts, most people just stiffen up the tranny mounts for better shifting (I have seen trannys with the ears broken off also). I've been in other car with them (big domestic V-8's), and it isn't all that pleasant. Maybe try new ones first, then if you want stiffen them up with hose clamps.

As for finding them. If it is a 73+ any machine shop could make them. Or just use a stack of washers. If it is a 70-72 MAYBE 911 mounts would work, find out from Tom.

Our race 914 is mounted solid and I can hear every little noise the engine and tranny make and they make a bunch! Our street 914 has the sport mounts, much quieter and they work really well. I'd go with the stock or for a little more solidness the sport mounts.

Solid mounts are not intended for long term service. I used them in my full frame 66 Chevelle 2dr sedan drag car. The stock rubber mounts were not intended to withstand the tork my 460hp 427 big block applied during an upshift at 7800 RPM'S There are other reasons drag racers use them. They aid in reaction time. Using solid mounts on a unit body car with no other modifications will result in metel fatigue in the unit body. MHO
