Are motor mounts necessary?

Hello everyone I am currently building the full motor and transmission in my 08 x MR and while it is out I was wondering if anyone could provide any advice on motor mounts swap if I will track the car and also use it as a daily driver for now? If you could give me any advice I would greatly appreciate it!

I know right.. I would immediately upgrade if I was strictly going to track the car and I know that it would be a noticeable difference with solid mounts like the Boomba options especially in corners and launches but I am also going to be daily driving the car and if it is worth it I will do it but I need more info..

I saw huge improvements on my mazdaspeed3 when I changed those. It shifted better and lurched less and all kinds of improvements. It did however increase NHV. Fuck im gonna get em. I didnt buy this car to be a caddie anyway.

If you get stiffer motor mounts, it will rattle the interior more, but they do break in after a while and become more mild.

I guess I am just wondering if I will really see much of a performance difference in my MR or if I should just not worry about them for now?

If you do see any performance gains (hp) it will be very little. I just did it so my engine/trans doesn't move under high load.

Would it be better to go with the AMS urethane type or Boomba solid?

Stocks mount bushings will crack over time. Lord knows mine started cracking within an year of ownership and zero mod/racing. The biggest benefit is the tighter feel they(aftermarket versions) provide. You basically avoid a lump of metal in your engine bay from dancing around as much leading to a muddied feel of the car. Although you do it at the expense of comfort.

You can just do bushings, there is no need to do the whole mount unless you want to avoid having to deal with a press for the bushings etc.

do you mind a little vibration? I'd go solid, but the rattles don't bother me
