does $225 seem a little high for motor mounts to put a 460 in my 68 torino? is there any cheaper alternative? that price is from crites and is a solid mount no isolater. is that a good idea in a street driven car?
It depends on your definition of a street car. If it is a race car with license plates - then it should be OK. I have urathane bushings / engine mounts on my truck and it certainly transfers a good deal of vibration and resonance into the truck. However on my wagon, I went with conventional rubber mounts to make it more pleasant while cruising.
As to the price - how much do you make an hour and how long do you think it would take to make a complete mounting system for your car? I have never seen or used the Crites stuff but they seem to have LOTS of satisfied customers so it might not be that bad of deal in the long run.
