Subframe reinforcement - a la M20 - is the general consensus

that it's a must to avoid impending mount failure or only done in the case of the subrame showing signs of needing it. Should be done on the basis of added assurance/insurance? Thanks in advance...

The M20 subframe will develop cracks on the plates that hold the motor mounts. The 2002 subframe will crack usually at the big bracket that holds the driver side mount. MIne cracked after 35 years.

With the torque of the six cyl motor I would think it will crack that much sooner. Its easy enough to do while the engine is out, IMHO just go ahead and do it.
