BMR ENGINE MOUNTS

Does anyone run these and recommend them? My car is cammed and I daily it and I'm worried about the noise from the vibration.

What's the benefits from upgrading the engine mount bushings? At what HP levels do they start failing at?

Mine failed and I' m at 500RWHP but I launch hard and have sticky DR's so I put a lot of strain on them. Right now I'm trying to decide whether or not its going to really screw up my ride quality/ comfort

and unfortunately our mounts are fluid filled rubber, they arent bushings so you cant "replace bushings" you have to replace the whole mount.

My stock ones have 119k miles on them and made upwards of 682rwhp for 70k of those miles.

If you've had failure already I'd upgrade like your looking at doing. Just means you might have to put up with more noise and vibration.
I enjoy noise and vibration.
Wait a minute....did I say that out loud?!

You kinda answered your own question....per above you 1/4 the car enough that the stock mounts aren't up to snuff...another thread had answers, adds some vib but for me that is a good thing...even tho I daily my ride....better mounts will also contribute to drive train stability which helps with launch consistency...go for it... peace out...

Looked for other threads, guess I'm not too good at the thread search. figured I'd ask my own question. anyway looks like Ill be going with the upgraded mounts, i was just curious if it was an extreme change. had the Hinson MotorSports mounts on my 2006 GTO but it was stock other than those and it was not very much of a change.

I have the Prothane poly motor mounts; I'd presume very similar to the BMR. I did get more vibration. Before, the stock mounts absorbed much of the engine movement. Now, I do feel a little shake, and the cam didn't help with that. However, that said, it's not enough that I consider it a NVR problem - it was just "more solid" feeling. The solid cradle bushings and differential bushings caused MUCH more NVR than the aftermarket motor mounts.

I like my BMR ones, car def feels more solid. I yanked my stock driver side in half almost. Didn't notice anymore noise than stock to be honest, then again I had a F1R blower strapped to the front so I couldn't complain
