I hope and trust y'all will conquer this. Drew a little inspiration fom my lovely patio view this evening. Seems like you're a little like this little fella right now, holding on for dear life.Oh it will, especially combined with their lower mount.
I've already got the SXTH Lower Motor Mount. So, I going to be able to make a direct comparison between the two with the TT upper mount. Once I'm done with the comparison, I'll install the SXTH mount and put it on the wife's Soul
The Turbo Tech Mount utilizes a unique square bushing design, instead of a round unit,utilized on other lower mounts. The use of both mounts in effect, will isolate and prevent forward and rearward engine movement under; hole shots, hard acceleration and deceleration. I believe the combination will effectively eliminate wheel hop, while still retaining a close to OEM ride without the additional vibration.
Turbo Tech has been really patient with our current state of affairs. I'm most grateful and appreciative, during a very trying period of both my sisters family and ours. It's hard to pack in the workings and affairs of two families.
We still have our son living with us, who was badly burned in a house fire last year, with 2nd and 3rd degree burns. He lost everything except his car and then some. We're also still hospicing caring our eldest Cocker Spaniel (14 years) who has terminal liver cancer. She's doing great but still requires daily attention. It's a surprise and blessing as well. Keeping in mind, my wife is still working everyday. So, most of it's left up to me during the day. Not that I'm complaining in the least bit, it's just been very busy nearly everyday.
I thought retirement was going to be a pleasant, quite, repose, surprise! I realize it will slow down eventually but right now, it's hard to pack in much more. I wasn't this busy when I was professionally Bass Fishing and traveling. Whew!!
Coming here and being able to pass some time and catch my breath, has been an everyday blessing. To share and let off steam, while enjoying myself a bit. Before all this it was; cycling 2 hours a day, posting here, tending house, our dogs and working on the car. Just had to put the bicycle away until things begin to slow down.
When all this began, it's been take care of everyone else's physical and mental needs and wellbeing. I think her family has started to understand, their starting to help more and more each day. This is a good thing for both my wife and I along with our other personal responsibilities.
Yes, as it evenly distributes the force equally in both directions forward/back, instead of also allowing excessive up/down movement. A round bushing permits more movement, in all directions.Does the square bushing design reduce engine flex but also keep the NVH lower than a round design?
This^ is correct and astute as well. I'm not trying to sell you on the TurboTech upper mount but it's something to consider if you want to balance the vibration/engine torque movement, while virtually eliminating wheel hop!I agree with Red. Any discussion about what the addition of the upper mount will do to NVH would be strictly conjecture at this point, as TT is the only one who has produced a test version (specifically designed for the N), and it isn't yet available to the public. Speaking of conjecture, I would imagine that replacing ONLY the bottom would actually create more NVH than doing both, due to the transfer of movement to the top of the engine and into the cabin. Doing only the bottom on its own will definitely help reduce wheel hop, but doing both should accomplish the same task, while also reducing the lateral movement transfer to the cabin.
