After numerous engine mount failures during competition I sent an engine mount to vibra tech and they made some up from Caterham mounts I think. Been on four years now perfect.

Three times the price of standards but fit and forget.

Greg Tunstell in Australia also has good one's. They're not cheap but don't fall apart.

This is the easy engine mount modification I made/found, working in a breakers yard my eyes where peeled for something better!
Anyway this is what I found, P38 V8 Range Rover gearbox mounts. Small modification as you can see to take the bottom stud, been on over a year now and no signs of wear!

Hope you can see images!
