Engine Mounts

Just wanting to get some advice on what style engine mounts are good for a big block with around 500hp, which may go up to 650 or so down the track. Don't know whether to go rubber pads like stock or urethane bush style. I don't want to run solids due to vibration, but would like to run it on a track (with corners) occasionally. Any experienced advice would be great.

I used Energy Suspension Urethane. Firm but no issues with vibration

I would have more confidence in a spool type mount than a bonded pad style mount with a performance engine.

I used the energy ones as well. Just make sure they’re shielded from your extractors if they run close though.

Also used Energy Suspension Urethane on my grumpy 496 - was 670+hp and exposed to my bloody hot headers - and they survived
No concerns whether it was street or track driven
