    Easy fix: pick up some header wrap from autozone, wrap the mounts toward the top, secure it with the metal zip tie, done!

    Give us about a week and we will have a permanent fix for anyone who is concerned with heat. I am very excited about the solution we came up with.

    I'm excited too but this would have been better if heat shielding was required/recommended beforehand. Btw, I like the transmission mount, good stuff! I like thinking outside the "box" solutions - bravo.

    Yeah, sorry about that. We sort of over looked that recommendation at first. Glad to hear you like our crazy ideas, thanks.

    The necessary materials should be arriving today. We hope to have something to show by the weekend.

    I couldn't wait, my mounts are getting installed now and the old shields were cut, overlapped, and then wire tied. They look like ass but they fit.

    I just installed mine a couple weeks ago,I just used some Taylor heat wrap,
    and safety wire to secure it,seems like it should hold up good.

    We now have a heat shield solution for our mounts. They are silicone thermal jackets that fit over our polyurethane motor mounts. They are available on our website now. https://www.revshift.com/shop/silico...al-jackets.php

    Acquiring the proper silicone for this application was a bit challenging. It took longer than expected but we are very happy with the material that we chose. The test results were far beyond satisfactory as well.

    So is one side more prone than the other? I may have a busted mount??, gotta do some checking.

    Etcts-v is close to my HP output, will these mounts or what manufacture has if so a permanent fix to this delema?. My car gets pounded hard every time I take it out(not good to post for resale) just do not want to do this every season.

    Because of the way the motor turns, the driver's side mount experiences stretching/tearing forces and the passenger side mount experiences compressive forces. The driver's side mount is almost always the first to go.

    That's what I was thinking as I have a clunk on Dr. Side at light clutch let out at times. Thanks for clearing it up, so who's mounts are lasting the longest?

    Without a doubt, the UMI solid motor mounts. But the vibration that they transmit is a definite downside. Most people used to buy the Creative Steel mounts, but RevShift's Blue mounts are the current favorite because they appear to be equally good at $100 less.

    The Creative-Steel mounts are only $195 now, and they come with heat shields. The RevShifts are $150 w/o shields, and the shields are $40. With the addition of RevShift, Creative-Steel has lowered the price to stay competitive. Soooo...now that they are the same price (roughly), which would be the mounts to go with?
