Compare the Z/28 to BMRs

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...385577&page=60

Same as the ZL1, 1LE, Z/28

Doesn't really say if they are better or not SS vs Z/28 vs BMR. I like the fact of factory parts but if no better than originals (2010) then aftermarket will be the way to go.

well are they better? do you drive/launch your car hard and put quite a bit of strain on the mounts? i see where they seem to be reinforced with metal on the outside but no info to how they have performed

I road race with the Z28 mounts -- and they work well. After all, the Z28/ZL1/1LE are setup to be run hard and its what they use. Ran with them @ NCM, pulling g's in the corners and pushing it when we hit the straights. You'll see more force on them in the road course setting -- 20 to 30 minutes @ a time.

I will say, check out X25's use of the BMR mounts -- he found after 3 hard days of racing (road course), he had to remove the mounts and replace the poly bushing so, if you run them hard, you may find the same issue.

There are a lot of ZL1's that drag race so, they use the same mount.

1LE's do both -- same mounts. The 10/11's had a totally different mount (I had those) thus, since I was road racing, I switched to the Z/28's mounts.

part # is 20952437 according to one of his earlier posts in his build thread, Now what I would like to know is if this is the same part number for both sides and if dropping the engine 1/4" is going to cause problems down the driveline, My car is driven pretty hard.

Yep:

20952437

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showpo...4&postcount=53

The Z/28 mounts didn't drop quite the same amount as the bmrs did. BMRs will drop a 1/4". The Z/28 maybe an 1/8" if that. I expected the same drop once the engine weight was on the Z mounts but looks like you get more drop from BMRs mounts...

Cheaper than the OEM mounts for a SS and better quality, Just got mine ordered and they look like they'll hold up better. I'm planning on reporting back with how they feel, I'm pretty hard on the car when it comes time for it, so it should be a good test environment.

Well I've got them ordered from GMPartsDirect.com looks like it'll be a while before they'll be here, sounds like they're in high demand, no local stealerships had them in stock. closest one was 130 mi away and price was about $65 more than online, guess I'll wait...

Just in case you want to see what I did (with headers, I unbolted the headers):

Note: I did 'lift' by the oil pan -- Use at your own risk -- so keep that in mind -- not everyone recommends that...
