Fits: 2000-05 MR2 Spyder All (includes 2ZZ swaps)
The engine in the MR2 Spyder is supported by 4 engine mounts. The transmission end and timing belt end mounts support the full weight of the drive train, while the front and rear mounts control the torque produced by the engine. With age, heat, and possibly a little more power than Toyota intended, these front and rear mounts can deteriorate over time and allow the engine to move too much under acceleration and engine braking. A hard launch can lurch the engine back and forth violently, and reduce the amount of power actually transmitted to the ground. This can alcu be a large factor in causing wheel hop.
The Speed-Source Polyurethane Engine Mount Kit is engineered to replace the stock rubber sections of the front and rear mounts with solid polyurethane. A steel insert keeps the poly mounts centered and locates the thru-bolt. With this kit installed, the car will be more responsive to throttle input, launch more effectively, and the LSD will engage more reliably.
Included in the kit are 4 polyurethane bushings, 2 metal inserts, and fully illustrated instructions. These mounts will fully replace the old rubber and metal mounts, not merely fill the holes in them. The polyurethane mounts are commercially formulated, poured, and post-cured, and the metal inserts are zinc-dichromate plated for corrosion resistance. These will give years of trouble free service. This formulation of polyurethane will transmit some vibrations into the cabin, most evident at idle.
