Vibra Technics Engine Mount
The original equipment engine mounts are designed to give a soft, comfortable ride in road car applications. This results in excessive engine movement which affects gear selection, cornering and braking when the car is driven on the track. In racing applications the OEM mounts are prone to premature failure of the rubber section and fracturing of the base of the pressed steel housing.
Vibra Technics have listened to BMW racing teams and have created this ultimate engine mount for motorsport applications.
Unlike the expensive BMW Group N parts which are just standard mounts in a harder rubber compound this engine mount is purpose designed for racing applications. Our mount is designed without compromise and combines a 6082 billet aluminium housing with a high shear modulus rubber insulator at its core. It is completely fail safe making it ideal for competition car applications and overcomes all the weaknesses of the OEM design.
Price is for a single mount. Two mounts are required for a car set.

It was realized in the early 1990's that there were some fast and expensive sports cars being built with fairly crude engine mountings and that little was available for the specialist car manufacturer when it came to a design and supply service for small numbers of engine mounting systems. Vibra-Technics Automotive was originally established to fill that gap. Subsequently racing and fast road saloon car mounts were developed for a variety of makes and this has grown the business to where Vibra-Technics are offering over 75 specific products for high performance cars with another 18 general products which can be used in a variety of applications from ATV's to V8 engined kit cars.
Vibra-Technics products are manufactured primarily from natural rubber compounds and occasionally from blends of synthetic and natural rubber to give particular properties for specific applications. Extensive experience and testing in all kinds of environmental conditions by Automobile Manufacturers has shown that only natural rubber compounds give optimum performance and durability (which is why it is still universally used today by every car manufacturer). Where the rubber needs to be attached to metal components, this is achieved by chemically bonding the rubber to the metal during the molding process, using the latest chemical adhesive systems.
