2001 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Sat Nov 18, 2017 8:01 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

imo just buy the RSS ones, live with the very slight extra vibration at tick over (and I mean nearly no difference from standard) and be in a state of wonder for what it does for the feel of the rear of the car. No brainer.

2004 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Sat Nov 18, 2017 8:52 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

Agree I was very suprised at the difference when I fitted them to my turbo, a little more vibration but it quietened down the input shaft chatter at tickover.

Mine need doing too - do you have a link to where you got yours from?

Assume these are DIY from what I've read - any tips or things to look out for?

Thanks!

I brought mine second hand but they are readily available.

Fitting wise very easy, even for me.

Jack up the engine a bit.
Do one side at a time.
Undo the nut that supports the engine. Sometimes the nut undoes. Sometime the whole 'stud' comes out. Either way no problem as the old mounts are junk.
Buy new nuts from Porsche for a couple of pounds just incase the originals have stretched.
Undo mounts from the top plates.
Take mount out, put new one in, do up top bolts, screw on nut underneath. Do other side.
30 mins tops
Enjoy.

Are these semi solid or solid mounts and will they work on a 997.2 4S, I had rennline semi solids on my gen1 and liked them not much NVH, but would like something a bit softer on the gen2 but still with all the advantages of firmer mounts Thumb

There a rubber mount bonded to a steel plate for fitting so I'd guess a semi solid design there certainly stiffer than the oem liquid filled units but certainly still flex unlike solid mounts I've not noticed any increased nvh.

Ive no idea on if they fit the 997 I'd probably guess so and d911's returns policy is quite good if they were wrong

964 RS mounts are also fitted to the 993 RS.

Standard 996 mounts come from a 993 Carrera.

64/93 Mounts are semi solid and as stated bolt straight onto a 996, you do however require a bolt and four washers per mount to get them to fit.

The RSS mounts are based on the Porsche RS mount.

sorry to the op but some more info on the 993/964 rs mounts

part numbers from d911

96437504381KIT x1 £111.72
90008211801 x2 £8.37
99908421501 x2 £4.00
90130531100 x4 £20.25

prices above are inclusive of vat and for the total quantity required.

You also need 4 thick washers which are expensive so i sourced the same spec on ebay for considerably less £5.42 for 5

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300891307854

total cost for all the required parts are £149.76 plus d911's delivery charge.

the bolts could be sourced elsewhere for less and you can reuse the nuts off your current mounts if there in good condition but there both cheap enough from d911.

Are these fluid filled like the 996? Where did you get them from?
