You guys think it's worth buying the engine support bar from harbor freight to use while working on the mounts?
It wouldn't make the job easier or prevent the engine from shifting too much?No need for a engine support bar to do mounts. I own one and still don’t bother.

In this photo, does the stock one also protrude out the back a bit?Yeah I’m pretty sure that all 3 are from the same China factory that used an OEM casting to knock them off (they have grind marks where they grind off the oem numbers lol)
So any perceived issues that happen with the o34s probably will happen to all of them… I just put some on my car about a month ago that I REPLACED BFI stage 1 with, haha. I knew the potential for “concerns” but will deal with them as I’m just not a fan of the nvh As I’m mores sensitive to them then others I suppose.

I’ll check it, when I get homeIn this photo, does the stock one also protrude out the back a bit?
What do the stage 2 mounts sound like on normal driving? I hear that they are violent lolTypical 034 quality.
I toss those and grab some BFI mounts personally. I have 75k miles on my full set of stage 2 mounts with zero issues
People have complained about excessive vibrations.What do the stage 2 mounts sound like on normal driving? I hear that they are violent lol

People exaggerate lol. I have a single mass flywheel DKM twin disk clutch & BFI stage 2 mounts and it’s about the same as driving my moms ‘05 Corolla. Sure there’s some noise & vibration transferred into the cabin, but roughly equal to people who call regular ol ketchup “spicy”.
This video was recorded on a real camera with a external mic, so it’s the most accurate representation on my channel, but the short answer is if you care at all about NVH just buy BFI stage 1 instead of stage 2.
