Uprated poly exhaust mounts - how many interested?

I did, but it looked like the updated OE ones were working fine for most people - and to be honest they look better than the poly alternative I've seen with them having steel inserts around the hanger, etc.
If it's something people still have trouble with I can take another look at them though.

Btw i went back to brand new oem hanger on mine as i had that weird 2.5k revs buzz in the rear. I still have the buzz so your mount wasnt to blame.

That sounded like a loose heatshield the way you described it before.

I've just finished turning up the alloy inserts for the small batch of engine mounts so hopefully will get some more feedback on those shortly, I'll start another thread for those though.

Small update, mounts will be available in a new material/resin shortly, it's microfoamed internally much like polyurethane bumpstops (or high end dashboard plastics with the soft touch surfaces) - which means the mounts now have more internal damping so I can lower the spring rate a little more for even less NVH, and it's been compensated for by foaming the outer surfaces of the mount more to increase the initial preload for both mount retention and exhaust location - and as a bonus, because of it they feel like those high quality soft touch dashboards I mentioned, not that it makes much difference when fitted but they feel pretty high quality when you take 'em outta the box :LOL:

No use for me now i have the PMS system with PMS mounts. But these were noticeably better than the solid offerings from other manufacturers.
Much reduced NVH transferring to the boot floor, but still supporting the exhaust properly.

Good product :)

And I can report that the new prototype took my car abuse without any issues! Was a doddle to fit with a light tap
