Engine Mount and front spring question


mariom2

Recommended Posts

I have a 1972 Tii with the S14 motor conversion, does anyone know if I could use the Tii stock motor mounts or do I need to use the M3 mounts. I am not sure if I need to match the frame or the engine or both. At this point I have the Ireland Engineering eurthane mounts and am experiencing significant vibration. Everything else has been replaced, including a bent drive shaft, new guibo etc. at about 1800 RPM I am getting this vibration, even if the car is not moving.

Second question, is anyone using coll overs? If so, any recommendations? My springs have been cut down a bit (Ireland Stage 1) and they are coming off the perch. I am not sure if there is a fix for this, or do I, need to replace springs or not.

Any info. would be helpful.

s14 block uses same engine mounting as m10. just get stock 2002 engine mounts (same as tii).

the urethane mounts transmit a buzzy vibration at all rpm's, not just in 1800 range. you have another issue somewhere else. are the TB's synched?

and yes, a large number of folks use adjustable spring perches. all 2002's come stock with "coilovers", as that is what a mcpherson strut is. the coil spring is over the damper. many, many threads on suspension options.
