    2005 Engine mounts

    It says in the 2005 technicians manual that the 2005 rxp/rxt have newer engine mounts with more sturdy material. Does anyone know anything about this ? Is is the same material as the RR front engine mount.

    No. The RR mount has a solid aluminum sheath around a rubber core.

    The OEM mounts are just a rubber knob with an insert for a bolt. If you ever had your engine out you would know that you can actually grab the OEM mount with your hand and move it all over the place. This isn't happening with the RR mount.
