What is the difference between using the stock EK subframe and the EG/DC subframe?
We recommend using the EG/DC subframe over the EK for a number of reasons. Using this subframe allows the engine to sit closer to the firewall improving the axle angle, it moves the weight of the engine closer to the center of the car and increases the clearance between the radiator and intake manifold.
What parts are required to use the EG/DC Subframe?
YOU MUST USE THE EG/DC SUBFRAME IF YOU PLAN ON USING AN RBC INTAKE MANIFOLD. PERIOD.
Hybrid Racing Engine Mounts by Innovative Mounts are a combination of over-engineering and a simplistic design. With a combined experience in the tool making and performance industry of over 50 years, we have the knowledge to produce superior products. We utilize 3D modeling software as well as advanced production methods to ensure that you’re getting a part that will last for the life of your swap.
Each bracket is manufactured from 6061-T6 billet aluminum and kept within specifications utilizing CNC milling machines capable of maintaining tolerances as tight as .0001”. Also, each product is hand assembled and inspected before being packaged and shipped.
Like all Hybrid Racing products, Innovative Mounts are used on our personal cars and are regularly abused. We are positive you will be excited not only about your mounts but about the service you receive from us. With a devout devotion to customer service and support, we have built a customer base that expands the globe.
What is different about these mounts compared to other kits?
The real differences come in the form of comfort when driving and ease of install. Each mount features no-tear tapered polyurethane bushings. This taper eliminates interference between the mount and chassis minimizing vibration throughout the car.
The mounts also offer two settings for engine placement. If you notice the mounting brackets have dual holes, which allow the engine to be placed further backward or forwards depending on which axles are being used. Under normal conditions, with OE style axles, the engine will be positioned as close to the firewall as possible. In the event you are using a racing driveshaft, such as the Drive Shaft Shop level 5.9, the engine may be shifted forward to avoid any interference between the larger center bar and the shock fork.
True Torque Positioning Technology (TTPT). What does this mean?
Our kit was designed to put both the passenger and driver side mount at the same height and directly across from each other allowing the motor to torque evenly resulting in even power distribution to each axle.
Backed by Innovative Mount’s lifetime warranty, these mounts come with a promise that they will not only fit and work great but the assurance that if they don’t, you’ll be taken care of.
So how do you choose what stiffness you need for your application?
The options available are as follows:
NOTE: All Hybrid Racing edition engine mounts come standard with green bushings.
75A Street – Recommended to 80% of our customers. This is the most popular street bushing that combines durability with a level of comfort.
85A Track - 85A bushings should be used in cars that see the track more than the street, or cars that have a significant increase in horsepower.
95A Extreme - 95A Extreme bushings should be used in racing cars only. These are near solid and offer minimal engine movement.
