I just installed the PMM from JBR and its a great quality mount, but has anyone get a whining noise after install? Sounds almost like you hear the belts more inside the car. But other than that its a much needed part. The car feels much better with the mount. No more sloppy shifts!

That sound you hear is the timing chain and valve train. Glad you like the mount.

Thanks,

I had JBR 70A rear engine mount installed and I couldn't bear with vibrations. Having my Spanish neighbors to turn their heads was clear indication that something is wrong And my completely rebuild sound system wasn't appreciating it either.
For Chicago city traffic it was really wrong choice. I went with Cork Sport inserts and they are "just good enough" - no vibrations, wheel hop greatly reduced (though not gone completely), shifting smoothness improved big time (I have TWM complete replacement).

Ricently installed JBR PMM e70. As performance wise, like most of the aftermarket Moutor mounts, it is very nice. When it comes to Vibs and loudiness. Quite a lot of vibs and timing chain noises. They did go quite down but still very noticeable. I am very picky about vibs and excesive noise and the one that we are talking about is not very bad. I did about 200 miles and I hope they go down more, If it is about 30% less from what is is now will be awesome.

I don't know exactly but I though I saw a thread somewhere that said race was close to 90 not sure and hard to search on phone. I just installed the race RMM not to long ago and love its vibs are by no means in bearable but they are they.

If u look under the sure section on the forums I have a review there

I am so lost on what to get.

I would like a mount that has minimal to no vibrations but yet is better than stock because the motor flops all over the place. I do like to use my AC on 90 degree days so it must work well with the AC on too.

I read most just upgrade the RMM then others are upgrading them all due to one being upgraded which puts stress on those that aren't.

Any ideas?

@johnspeed3 Get the RMM see how you like it. BWT, with the RMM you will pretty much notice not vibs but performance wise it does make difference, especially shifting. They later get the PMM. From my experience( I had all MM) the TMM makes most noise out of all.

Alright awesome, So just getting the RMM isn't going to cause the others that are stock to snap on me? I'm not launching the car or anything at the track/street

if you're on the fence maybe 10% off all mounts for Labor Day will help. Web code "worksux" good now through midnight tomorrow.

hmm, So Im ready to buy a RMM on my MSP 6.. Dont want anything too stiff.
i noticed on this thread that people are not really talking about the AWR RMM for the 6..
I believe the JBR one has only the option of going with the Custom 80a Durameter urethane bushing. I kinda would like to stay around the 70 mark...
I know any of these is a fantastic upgrade just trying to minimize the vibration part..

Thanks any input is greatly appreciated.

If cabin noise is important to you then you may consider staying stock or eventually use some inserts for the RMM to reduce the engine movement a bit.
A 60 duro mount may also be fine, depending on how you actually feel (you may consider acquiring a rubber bushing mount rather than an urethane mount).

Anything above 60-65duro is about pure performance and starts loosing any contact with cabin comfort. If you also temper with the side mounts then kiss cabin comfort good-bye.
And I'm talking about real cabin comfort, not the "I'm a true man, I can handle it!" kind of comfort. When having upgraded motor mounts usually (but not necessarily) the passengers/driver will feel more tired after medium/long drives (say, 100+ miles) and possibly more nervous than if they had stock motor mounts.

There's a very thin line between performance and comfort and it's very hard to follow it. And sometimes you need to throw your money on a motor mount and see how it feels for yourself and if you can take the extra NVH, because every individual will react differently to that.
Speaking for myself who I could still hear 20+KHz noises by the age of 30 (normally people loose the ability to hear above 15-16KHz by the age of 17-18) the extra noise coming from a 60 duro mount (urethane or rubber, tested both) is the most that I can take.

I agree with this completely and it seems we are in the minority in feeling this way. I upgraded from the stock mount to a 60a SU mount shortly after I got the car and the increase in vibes was very tolerable and almost unnoticeable. Then after reading what seemingly everybody had to say about how awesome the JBR 88a mount was I bit the bullet and bought it. I put about 5k miserable miles on that mount, completely hating my car and how it rattled and shook like it was going to fall apart. My wife hated it and people who rode in the car would occasionally comment on it. With the A/C off I could tolerate it, but A/C on was just unlivable for me. This last weekend I bought and installed a JBR 80a mount used from another member and my car is actually comfortable again!

Bottom line: what is acceptable to some people may not be acceptable to you.

Yeah it seems like i will go with the Cp-e mount cause that one is at 60 from what i read?
yeah i def wanna increase a bit of performance cause i will do a few upgrades on the car but nothing like changing turbos or something, So i want it to be able to handle the some performance upgrades, and i won't mind a bit of vibrations i know this is too be expected

I really appreciate all the info, So i def will go with the 60 version! thanks guys let you know what i think when its in

Well danm i just got a call back from SU and they said they no longer sell the 62A RMM. so the guy said the SURE one at 75A is the closest they got, so i went with that one, in a powder blue since this is my theme.
So im a little disappionted but will see, will get it before the weekend.
Will drive it right away IM going on a road trip first week in Oct and i wanna bring my MSP6 not the protege hahaha,
But hopefully i will break it in by than.

Thanks for the tips guys

I doubt you'll have any problems with the NVH, it's really not that bad. Besides, the improvements brought to the party are substantial enough to be worth it.

got the SURE RRM. blue. you can see the difference between the stock and it and i put her on, it wasnt too bad. i definitly recommend a lift or car jack something to lift the engine a tad. and as well something to give you leverage.

I stuck a Pry bar between the back of the mount and the Black bar running across the car this allowed me to move the mount Forward towards the Engine Block. and TADDAA!!!

Vibes are barely noticeable when driving or Idle, but they are DEF noticable when you turn the A/C on. but Honestly nothing you cant live with.

With just a RRM and CAI(so far in the car) HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!
I FEEL LIKE IM DRIVING A TOTALY NEW CAR!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT!!!

For an MS3, walking the "thin line between performance and comfort" is easy to do, IMO.

Get a CP-E Stage 2 RMM and call it a day.

Never noticed this thread, but I've had experience with a lot of the MS6 mounts. Basically a 60-70 rmm and the TT FMM are all most people will ever need and they will not induce much discomfort at all. A few rattles may appear, but that is about it. Side mounts on an MS6 will make life absolute hell, BUT you will need at least the passenger mount when you get into 500HP range. Dustin just ripped his apart on a 3rd gear pull the other day. You can probably still get away with the 70 AWR mount there and be plenty safe, but I had the 88 mount once and made it around the block to pull it back out. Anything above 70 seems to be intolerable to me to drive on the street. I feel bad for the MS3 guys that need tranny mounts because the noises alone would make me sell the car.
