Does anyone know if the 3.6 997 engine mounts are the same as the 996 ones? I can get 2 for a 997 at less than £200 delivered supposed OE quality but wanted to check they're the same first. Thanks

If you look on the Design911 website you will see that the ones they sell fit 964,993,996 and 997, so I would say yes, they are the same Thumb

Thanks for that. I had feeling they were but wanted to double check first.

According to Derours 996 Mounts have part numbers staring 993 but could have been superseded.
I went with RSS mounts for my 996T, recommended by 9E and compared to the very tired originals they transformed the rear end.

Cheers,

I’m using 993 semi solids on my 996tt with longer bolts.
They were listed as being compatible with the 997 too.

Can recommend the RSS mounts, not the cheapest option but well worth the expense thumbsup

Thanks guys. The RSS ones are semi solid so I believe so a bit more geared towards track use?? I did look at the 993 rs options discussed a lot on here too as an option.

Those rockauto ones seem to be very good value! Is it a well used supplier?

I have RSS mounts on my 997 and noticed no difference in handling or harsher ride etc. What I did notice was gearchange was better, engine response seemed better, but most of all the engine now sounded incredible. When you floored it, the engine intake noise was awesome. The engine sounded much more rev happy and the whole driving experience was improved. I wasnt expecting that, so it made the mounts even more value for money.

I have ordered via them and delivery came in 5 days from the US. You pay the expected import duty up front so no surprises when the parcel is delivered.

The mounts that rock auto used to sell are in a Rein branded box. Inside is a Czech made OEM mount. Lots on here about them if you search. I have the rein version in mine.

I ordered them at that price from rock auto in the end. I assumed it was an old pic from when the £ was a bit stronger against the $. Ordered on Saturday and awaiting delivery.

Thanks for the heads up on the rocksuto Rein units. A job I’ve been meaning to do for a while.

Ordered Thursday, arrived yesterday and I’ve just finished fitting.

Good job I did too, nearside was toast and dumped the oil as I took the weight off of the mounts, rubber completely gone and was free to move all over the place.

Don’t forget, new nuts for underneath, 18mm deep socket, breaker bar and blue loctite for reassembly.

Definitely don’t forget to reconnect the MAF if you want to avoid a heartstopping moment when you fire back up again! PC

Managed fine without the need for axel stands.

Coming off the accelerator now is sans judder and passenger seat doesn’t vibrate at idle.

Time to go for a proper test drive Very Happy

Dan

It does make a massive difference.

Also check your gearbox front mount whilst under there, thats a bit tricker to replace but difference can be felt.

I'm still waiting for my units to arrive! Did you pay for speedier postage at all Dansteele?

I've got 4 new coffin arms and 4 new tuning forks to fit too so hoping for a substantial improvement in handling once I've fitted them all.

I think I went for quicker shopping, the estimated delivery date seemed quite far off for the regular option.

From what I’ve read/ experienced you are in for a treat after a refresh like that.
