lock Warranty Information keyboard_arrow_down
- Energy Suspension warrants its products against defects in workmanship and material for 24 months when used on passenger cars and light trucks. Products that have been abused, altered, or incorrectly installed are not covered. Energy Suspension will replace defective products or component parts, if inspection for factory personnel determines the part to be defective. Warranty replacement covers only the product. Labor claims, time loss, or freight charges will not be honored.
Energy Suspension Motor Mount Inserts
Energy Suspension's motor mount inserts are crafted out of Hyperflex polyurethane, a material much more durable than rubber that can handle the intense weight, heat, and pressure. Designed to fill the voids built into your OE motor mounts, these inserts will drastically increase the power transfer efficiency from your engine to the wheels. Since the voids were initially put there to reduce NVH, it stands to reason that filling in those voids will have the opposite effect. Installing Energy Suspension's Hyperflex motor mount inserts may increase your NVH, but the increase to overall performance is worth it to some drivers. To top it off, all of Energy's motor mount inserts are covered by a two-year warranty handled in-house here at DST.
The OE Motor Mount
OE motor mounts are usually made out of metal with holes strategically placed to keep most of the engine's vibrations from traveling to the cab. While the OE mounts are decent for the daily driver, the weekend warrior or straight up racer will probably look for an upgrade. Purchasing entire motor mounts can be rather pricey, but what other choice to these drivers have? Energy Suspension's Hyperflex Polyurethane motor mount inserts offer the performance boost of a solid motor mount without the higher cost.

starstarstarstarstar" great product "
Well worth the mod, the rear mount is the hardest to install, and some trimming to the inserts have to be done for proper fitment. Overall the car shakes a bit but its hardly noticable, but the throttle response on the car now is way better. 2 thumbs up from me!!!verified_user Verified Buyer - brian de jesus - .

starstarstarstarstar" Great products "
increases throttle response and improves vehicle stability. there is an increase in vibration throughout the cabin but it is minor. install the front was an easy install just popped out and popped back in the rear was a more difficult install advise using a pro mechanic for inexperienced users.verified_user Verified Buyer - Andrew Lum - .

starstarstarstarstar_border" Installed the matrix mounts on my Celica and they fit. "
I like the motor mount inserts a lot. I have a Celica and energy suspension does not sell this product specifically for the Celica, but both vehicles have the same motor mounts so it fits. The inserts decrease wheel hop on my vehicle and I can feel the torque a little bit more. It's also nice to not hear my engine rock everytime I shift. The only downside is you will have a little vibration.verified_user Verified Buyer - Barton drummond - . Energy Suspension 8.1101 - 4 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar_border" Perfect for Stage two and above "
I installed these with a new clutch in my Matrix XRS. The shifting and overall performance of the the stock setup was worse than bad for the first 85k miles I owned the car. (I bought it new) Since installing the bushings there is a noticeable difference in shifting smoothness, take off smoothness and lack of shudder in the driveline. At mid highway speeds there is no longer the delay with accelerating. I wish that a "softer" version was available as the idle vibration takes some getting used to and I am now correcting a number of vibrating parts in the car but even with that minor issue, it is worth every penny.verified_user Verified Buyer - CARL NYMAN - .

question_answer Customer Questions and Answers
- Do you have Motor Mounts for the Pontiac Vibe?
The Pontiac Vibe was never tested fully for fitment. However they share the same platform as the Toyota Matrix. There for it could be possible that they share the same part numbers for replacement mounts. That part number is 8.1101 by Energy. This s would be at your own risk because this has not been tested by Energy.
