No pun intended. The new piece from Skyline is a one-peice engine mount. Although it's 4grams heavier than the stock mounts, its benefits outweigh(pun intended) the extra weight.

I tried it and one of our drivers had very good luck with the combo.

A new pipe is a ways down the road.

aluminum servo horn is probably a good idea. i've never had one in my previous cars but sure will add more bling to the car

Racing4Evo can you tell me the advantage of a one-piece engine mount?

The one-piece engine mount has a couple of advantages over stock mounts:
1. Since it is an aftermarket piece it is usually lighter by it being milled out (usually the center of the mount is milled out)
2. It usually has cooling fins for better heat dissipation
3. It makes it easier to align the motor to the gears (more convenient)
4. It stiffens the chasis somewhat

In my personal opinion, I would have to say that #3 and #4 are the main advantages of having a one piece engine mount, plus it just plain looks better than stock monts.

1) The mounting holes will always be in the same position which results in it being easier for assembly and less chance of stripping a mounting hole because of misalignment.
2) More reliable mounting. All four mounting holes will be reinforced by each other.
3)The aluminum used is far more heat conductive than the stock mounts which translates into heat reduction from the engine.
4) It acts as a psuedo chassis brace over the mounting area.

I hope that answers your question.

Thanks

This particular mount as I mentioned earlier is 5 grams heavier than the stock engine mounts. While I can't say it is perfectly fine to add weight to the car when it is well over the legal weight miniumum, I can counter that the weight is at least added as low as possible to the ground helping to lower the roll center somewhat.

I wish I could be the one controlling those things. If it's something that would benefit the car I'm sure you would see it being made in the future. Those decisions will be made by the people making them right now.
