Motor mount inserts

Postby KillerofRice » Wed Mar 14, 2007 11:07 pm

I was wondering if anyone knows of a company or website that makes polyurethane inserts or mounts for the Beretta. I know Energy Suspension doesn't and I believe Prothane doesn't either. Or am I stuck with either getting hydraulic or solid mounts?

84 Z28- Sold :(  Was a better beater than beretta.

You can get the transmission strut mount (dogbone) from Fast Forward Performance.  A lot of people make their own mounts by filling stock ones with urethane.  I know some sites have premade mounts that fit...I'm not sure what's out there for the Quad.  Mine did awesome with the homemade mounts.

Talk to some custom foam applicators, they may be able to fab something up.

Thanks guys. Just curious how many motor mounts are on the 90 Quads. I know where the two bottom ones are. Just wondering where other ones may be hiding. Would it be worth going solid?

Urethane is definitely worth it if you will be racing and have any kind of power.  Replacing the stock mounts twice will likely cost more than going with solid ones once.  Plus solid will help you get the power to the ground better and more quickly.

I don't know how many mounts the '90 Quad has.

For the 90 Q4, you'd either have to use the "puck" front mount or something custom made from aluminum or something.  The trans mount can be filled, and the rear mount is basically similar to the V6 rear mount.
