    Re: Alternative poly engine mounts

    I remember driving my accord without a hood with the stock powertrain, I was amazed at how much movement it had, not just torsionally, but when hitting bumps on the highway. I wondered if the car would actually ride smoother over bumps with more solid mounts, since the chassis was so decoupled from all that mass. Analogous to weight sitting on the seats vs the floorpan. I do agree that the oem mounts are a little too soft, and obviously what you've done addresses that. But I still wouldn't eliminate the dogbone, since it has that nice leverage over the powertrain. I would possibly change the bushing, or both bushings in it, and possibly the free play in it, but I wouldn't eliminate it. I'm not saying anyone who does eliminate it is doing anything wrong necessarily, just that I wouldn't do it myself. (even though I did with the B series swap..)

    I made the big end on the dog bone almost solid with an aluminum insert and left the small end as is. I had thought about making a poly insert for the small end, it made a big difference, even on a stock motor
