Will It Fit Your Vehicle?
Vibratechnic set out to make the highest quality products on the market. We come from a OEM background and our technical director was actually involved in the design and development of the original Civic and Accord engine mounts for Honda in the UK back in the mid 90s.
We never ever use polyurethane because its such a poor vibration isolator, it also have issues with temperature stability, we only ever use OEM standard rubber compounds.
When we set about designing the EP3/RSX system we started from scratch. The right hand (engine side) mount took the most time developing because its characteristics are critical. It is also the one that is most prone to failure. It can be fitted without the other mounts and the performance gain from this part alone is fantastic. It is also very price competitive with the OEM parts over here.

Do not install these without K-Pro
With the AC off and the cooling fan not running, these mounts are very nice. No vibrations and very close to stock. Although as soon as the engine fan turns on, the vibrations increase, but still isn't bad. God help you if you are running the stock 750rpm idle setting and have the AC turned on. Cabin vibration is harsh and anything loose will vibrate loud and drive you crazy at a stop light. If you are daily driving your RSX, I would not recommend these mounts if you don't have K-Pro. That being said, these mounts do hold the engine much better. Wheel hop is completely gone and the throttle response is much better. Induction noise sounds great when you are gunning it. After about 3k miles, the mounts loosen up a bit and the 1st/2nd gear jerk happens again. I'm sure once I get K-Pro I'll like these mounts more. Until then I will probably reinstall the stock rear (firewall side) mount to reduce vibrations. Mods on car: -Short Ram Intake -Hondata Reflash -KTuned Race Header -RS-R ExMag Catback

Replaced my harsh innovative 60a's with these and holy crap! Basically no vibration and the engine sits tight! Worth every penny!

The engine is stiff so i guess they do their job, but ny car does vibrate pretty bad.

Vibratechnics motor mounts
Very satisfied I always heard about other mounts making the car vibrate like crazy and read that these don't really do that well after install I gotta say vibrations were very minimal I actually liked them and I've had them for over 5 months now and it feels just like stock and my girlfriend never complained about shakes so I'm assuming she never even noticed drives great the car doesn't jerk like it did with the stock mounts shifts are way smoother ... I would definetly recommend these!!!! Oh and by the way these were installed on an rsx type s

It's a great product...but an absolute nightmare to install
Honestly, these motor mounts are excellent. Just the right and left mounts are able to handle the weight of the motor and transmission which makes the rear mount icing on the cake. The car does exhibit a little additional vibrations, but it has definitely settled down. Even on cold mornings, the vibrations are bearable. My only complaint comes with installing the rear mount. Unless you drop the subframe, there is no easy way to torque down the bolts that attach the rear mount to the subframe with hand tools. Because of that, I incorrectly tightened one bolt which then proceeded to get stuck in the nut. I ended up having to cut it off with a dremel which was less than ideal. I'd recommend vibratechnic consider threading those holes similar to the factor rear engine mount to ease the installation.

Excellent for daily drivers/ highly modified cars
I honestly second the opinions of everyone else. These were my first aftermarket engine mount kit and I'm glad I purchased them. I'm a firm believer of "you get what you pay for" and even then that phrase doesn't do these mounts enough justice. They're just to good to be true. Minimal cabin vibration (bearable and daily driver friendly. Actually made the car feel alive) and excellent throttle response, steering inputs, and control. Yes they are a little more than innovatives and only come with three mounts (minus the front) but I guarantee you'll be satisfied. I normally don't leave reviews either but I had to for these. Hard Race mounts are good too (cheaper actually and include all four) but i opted for these and I'm please.

Highly Recommended for a Daily Driver
The mounts are a huge improvement over stock with a very tolerable increase in noise and vibration. In comparison, I had the Innovative 60A mounts for 2 years before and they caused a lot of drone and rattled the plastic trim badly. I'd get Vibratechnics for any car I own, and I'm amazed that they're not more common among RSX owners. They're worth every penny.

It is winter still so I am still months away before installing them, but build quality is top notch, I am impressed. Come spring I know what to expect. My only complaint is shipping. Canadian customers get screwed. US gets free shipping, I paid an additional $78, which is unfair.

loved them! *****
I got these mounts a month ago and what can I say I loved them vibration is minimal not even noticeable but still they feel firm at the same time I just loved them paired it up with the ingalls engine damper and wow just in love with the way my car feels a drives now! And shipping was surprisingly fast considering the origin from now kseriesparts.com is the spot for me..

These mounts are a little more than poly ones, however the quality is top notch and vibrations are minimal. My wife has a 05 type-s and drove my car without making a complaint/comment regarding vibrations. They took a few weeks to come in, however Steve from K series responded quickly to my emails and Phil from Vibratechnics emailed me regarding the backorder issue. Very happy with this purchase. Now ready to install a race header.

Better than expected
I bought these to replace my Innovative 60a's. I had all 4, and wondered if the rubber of these mounts would be able to do as well as the poly holding everything in place, as I am supercharged and enjoy spirited driving. These mounts have exceeded my expectations for both vibration suppression and also engine movement. I would recommend them to anyone looking to keep the interior quiet while still wanting to hold things in place.

Perfect for a daily driver
These mounts fit great on the car. The only issue I had was getting the oem sub-frame mount off since my header was in the way. I had to loosen my header to swing it out of the way. They do look amazing and very well engineered which is always reassuring. The first couple days, my car had a lot of vibration but the mounts mellowed out in about 5 days and are easy to live with once they are broken in. Also, I really like how everything seems to have tightened up! The steering, throttle response, braking, and shifting all seem more direct now. I never noticed the slight lag the stock car had until I got these stiffer mounts. On a cold start the car does vibrate quite a bit around 1500 rpms as the car hangs near that rpm to warm up and finally lowers to its warm idle . The ac also makes the vibrations more noticeable at idle. Overall these are well worth the money. I am very confident that I will not have to replace these any time soon and they are exactly what I wanted. I know they are pricey, but I don't think there is a better mount out there.

Install was as simple as swapping the old mount out and putting these bad boys in. Perfect fitment. Only trouble installing was removing the central bolt as on Honda's, everything is in the way. NOT this company's fault. 1st impressions was too stiff. Hard to judge from posted video. However 2 days later after normal daily driving, the rubber sets and WOW! Simply amazing. Very tolerable engine vibrations and engine doesn't move around as the stock mounts allow. Ive also taken the car to an auto-x and all inputs from the car such as throttle, shifter, braking have tightened up nicely. Everything feels like it works as its designed to under extreme driving conditions and daily driving conditions too. Been driving on them for almost a month and have nothing but good things to say. The car is my daily and my monthly auto-x race car. Also an occasional HPDE. Hope longevity will not be an issue. It's worth the extra $$$ and the wait from the U.K.... and the call from fedex customs asking what they were and what they are made out of, LOL! "Uh, rubber and metal. It's a motor mount. It holds my engine in place, haha!"
