I can get the pics this afternoon.

Interesting tidbit as well. On my factory mount, there'* a removable piece of rubber that slides in across the top of the bolt hole and loops on one side. The new mount didn't have that piece, it was easy to move over.

The new mount came from Napa, brand new unopened box. ($60 out the door FTW!!!!)

Hey Dinoboy..

Where'* the rubber piece that goes in the space above the bolt hole? Looks like your mount is also beginning to tear. I assume this is the original?

There'* no rubber piece in that hole on either of mine.

And that tear is nothing. It'* a surface issue only. The TA mount is oil-filled. When it leaks, replace it.

I have two "surface" tears on mine and it'* being replaced. What information do we have that tells us it is oil filled? I haven't looked that one up yet.

On mine there is a rubber piece that I'll get a better picture of. Looks like it doesn't provide much support if any.

those tears definitely sacrifice some dampening ability. One little notch means that the rest of the rubber is going to strain. Especially when making as much power as you are going to be; you should definitely be replacing that mount

might i suggest something like this: this is a solution that some other auto communities use to strengthen up their mounts -got it from a friend of mine with a quick little supra-

essentially, they fill in cracks and spaces in the mounts with window sealer, and apparently it helps firm them up a bit... there are some other writeups for the same method out there, i didn't spend much time looking
