Yessir, the temperature is being addressed. I actually had to source a new company to find material to withstand the high temperatures.

The photos on the site will vary slightly from the completed version. That is a photo of the protortype.

Do you guys want any other info?

So when can we expect the full kit, and will there be discounts for buying the full kit instead of one at a time?

Are you using a high-temperature urethane?

Once the full kit is complete, yeah their will be a full kit price that will be cheaper than buying each mount individually. The full kit however is still about 2-3 months away.

Yes, we are using a specially designed high temperature urethane.

Can anyone show me where is engine mount location? I did a search but can not see anyone post the pic. The pic from CPE website is useful but can't figure out where it actually sits. I want to get an idea of how easy it can be done by DIY. Thanks.

there is a shot of the stock mount

SU mount project is waiting on the high temp material to come in. The aluminum mount is machined and ready, just waiting to set the bushings now.

The mounts that are being looked at for production is the rear mount (almost done), the rear differential mount, passenger side, and then driver side. One at a time.

I did it myself a week or two ago. Just drove the car up on some ramps, and went at it. Took about 60 min or so, as a couple of the bolts gave me a little trouble when I went to put the mount back in. I had to lift the engine/trans back up while trying to push the bolt through the hole. When you take out the OE mount, you will see the whole engine/trans drop a bit. To get the new mount in, you have to lift it up. I had a jack underneath, and that helped - but still had to lift in position manually - took some balls so man up. Totally worth it though as shifting is so much better now - with hardly any extra vibration in my case.

Thanks. So it is actually under the car not the hood.

if your doing an oil change, you can change out the mount at the same time.

if you take down the air dam you can see it toward the back end of the motor near the firewall

IC. May be next time I will ask my own mechanic to change it when changing the oil. I think it will be easier for more hands to do it.

why? you don't even need to support the motor to change it? its all of i think 5 or 6 bolts that hold it in.
