It's about stress on the mount points. At 350+whp your motor is flexing and you want as many points of control as possible. Those torque mounts (with matching stiffness inserts) are the furthest out point. They prevent the motor from exerting excessive leverage on the two side mounts. They work in tandem with the rear mount for keeping the motor from rocking - ie wheel hop. The two side mounts support the weight and shouldn't be doing the job of flex control.

Getting ready to throw on some falken azenis 912s. We shall see how that goes.
I have those tires on my teg n let me tell u, I love them! Excellent tire wear, and very good traction. Even better feedback. I can feel them gradually get there limit which is great. U will not be disappointed.

Well as I said I don't have the ability to use them bc the welded nut on the inside of the frame is broken off so I could never bolt trq mounts on even if I wanted to

Yeah I'm still thinking about what tires I'd like to run a 215 for more traction and tire on the ground I'm hoping to run across a 15x7.5-8" rim that I can throw some drag radials on like bfg g force or falken azenis or maybe just some s-drives. I just need something to battle this trq steer. But it looks like trans leak brake fluid leak comes first. It seems like the brake leak is coming from the booster itself none of the lines seem to leak but I see fluid underneath the booster so maybe it's toast? I'll have to take it all apart when I get more time but I hear a squishing noise coming from it

Well time for another update of awesomeness
My tranny=leaking so...
Bought a screwed up ls trans, plans are to use the ls case my internals and the LSD and steal the ls 5th so I'll be looking at gsr1-4 ls5th and itr LSD Franken-tranny I should be doing this soonish but my work schedule is nucking futs as soon as trans issue is solved the next step will be to get the exhaust on there potential ram horn new dp and dt then drive to Tampa to get tuned by John vega I've heard nothing but good things about this guy and I'm not to thrilled with my tune right now so I'm gonna test his skills. After that plans are to put in a set of rear seats ITR and probably never use them bc of the b and c pillar bars lol I also added a pwjdm rear 4pt strut bar to my set up so now no backseat or trunk but I'll be all barred out for dragon which I'm stoked about and can't wait for

The way I see it, the more points you have holding the motor in place the better. As long as, like Melt pointed out, they all have matching stiffness levels. And Honda put them there for a reason. Can't really beat millions in development cost

Lol pat I'll shoot you a pic bc the autoguide app won't let me post a pic and as far as the trq mounts go I couldn't use them even if I wanted to so I chose to not want them lol my motor mounts are stiff as can be you know this and that thing doesn't move at all so for now it works so I'll leave it alone
On the subject of the bar I feel like I ALMOST have a full cage now lol if I get more bars I'll be getting the miracle x bar then I'll have two X bars in the trunk a b pillar and a c lol idk why but i love bars <3
