Motor Mount, or Engine Brace?
Sup guys, I've been looking into Killerms engine brace, but then I saw something about a motor mount on NC.org. Killerms brace goes only on one side of the motor letting the driver side flex more than the passenger side. The motor mount allows the car to flex evenly, with even less flex than the brace. The mount is 150 with a 50 refund for sending in your old mount. Throw out your ideas/opinions.

It will help with shifts, and I'm sure that there will be some torque gain as well. I'm betting that you could knock off .1-.2 off of the 1/4 mile, plus a short shifter. You won't have that bogg cause the engine doesn't flex.

everyone has said the brace is good cheers but on nc org they say used as a combo with the mount its even betta...they said the brace lets one side of the engine flex more than the other, but for fifty bux its a great buy thumbsup

The second link that Brad posted is what got me really thinking about this product. Given yea, the engine brace is good. But since one side flexes more than the other...I don't like that. The motor mount keeps everything equal. I also think the mount keeps the motor flexing less than the brace does. As a combo, they do some talk about how the engine doesn't flex enough and that is bad. I think that having them both is just too much. But I am leaning towards the mount. I just wanted to bring up this topic and get some ideas floating around. So just post whatever you have to say.
