GI: GE motor mounts/engine torque damper

Trying to get a list going for people who would be interested in these.

I don't think there's any out there yet for the GE. I think theres a definite need for them to get a little extra GO from our Fits.


I've contacted Boomba Racing about developing a product for us. They make mounts for the 8th and 9th gen civics which have been well received.

No word on pricing yet. If the civic mounts pricing are any indication then we're somewhere near $200. Post up if you're interested and we'll start a list.

6. xxryu139x
7. SlowFit13
8. skatinemcee

07/21/14 update:
we're actually trying to work something out with innovative while they are still developing/releasing the CRZ upgraded mounts. if it doesnt happen this will be our backup. and abrunson7's company the backup for that. hoping we can get something going with innovative, the GE 5MT has the same rear torque mount as the CRZ 6MT so we just need 2 more made.

Count me in. Stock mounts suck!

I think the torque arm is the most important. Would be nice to have the option of purchasing this mount separately for those that are not mechanically inclined.

Two different levels of stiffness (street and track) would also be on the wish list.

Definitely interested... for an MT (I think the AT is different)

as I mentioned in the other thread, I was just going to buy an OEM set, and send it over to Innovative myself.
Not familiar with Boomba, but it's all good.

It's amazing how much this engine moves around...

That's very interesting. :-)

I don't have the ca$h right now but it's on my list for my GE8. Any clues about the tools needed to change that out?

Regular hand tools, nothing special needed.

I work with Boomba pretty regularly. If they don't make the mounts, and there is enough interest, we will look into doing them. All we would need is about 10 people and we could knock them out in just a few weeks.

By we, I mean my company. Mitsubishi Evo | DSM | Subaru WRX/STI | BR-Z Parts

Have been thinking about making them for awhile, but we are making some significant changes in the shop so its not a top priority.

Will keep checking the progress on Boomba via this thread and go from there.

Good work OP!

I would definitely be in! I would be more interested in a street level stiffness though.

Well it might be a bust for innovative. I'm gonna hit up boomba again to see if 8 is enough to produce them

I hope they can do something for us... The bracket on my Takeda cold air intake just craked out because the engine is moving too much. lol I am waiting for the replacement part but i'm sure the problem won't be solved until I get new engine mounts.
