    Hi all,

    Just looking at the engine mounts upgrade k-tec do for the 197/200.

    They seem a good price for all 3 as a kit.

    Can anyone give any feedback on these items?

    i have only the lower one!

    well made and fitted 100%

    more vibration but a lot less movement from the engine

    Sorry for my stupid question, but is the lower one on their site called:
    "lower stabilizer mount" ?

    Thanks!

    Do you think that if i place this non stock engine mount without telling the dealers, will my warranty become void?

    technically only they can tell you.....

    but if only the workshop notice it!

    i quite like the added vibration....especially when cold - feels more like a "race" engine :thumbup1:

    I have all 3 on mine.

    When cold there is some vibration, you can see it in the steering wheel.

    But once all up to temp they are no issues.

    Makes the car feel that little bit more responsive.

    I would fully recommend them.
     
  12. Sold them to me that comment :smiley:
     
  13. I also have all three. The upper engine mount cracked its mounting after 300 miles usage and ended in a horrendous knocking noise. This was returned to Vibra Technic and repaired FOC. So far the repaired unit has held up okay.

    If you think these give more vibration then try the 182 uprated mounts!

    Ah right, fair enough. I didn't look at the Ktec ones first to be honest!

    on standard 197/200 there are 2 "engine mounts" and 2 "stabiliser bars"

    (cam belt) position mount l/h

    (gearbox) position mount r/h

    (sump pan) lower stabiliser l/h

    (cam belt) upper stabiliser l/h

    if you use the "k-tec" mount kit there are only 2 mounts and 1 stabiliser as the top l/h one isnt needed if the lower stabiliser is fitted
     
  18. Where does this torque link go?

    if you mean the lower one it bolts on to the subframe and to the drivers side support bearing housing for the drivers side driveshaft...
