I have Porsche 993 RS mounts fitted to a 996.

The items sold by D911 are pattern parts, I am not sure about those from Type911. - The Porsche items have a 964 part number cast into them, originally fitted to 964 RS. - If anyone wants a picture let me know.

The standard 996 mounts are from a 993 Carrera while the 964 RS mounts were fitted to the 993 RS.

The RSS mounts are based on the Porsche RS mounts. I believe RSS increased the shore of the rubber marginally.

I did the mod with a raft of other items so can not comment on their effect in isolation, however I have not noticed any real increase in NVH.

2004 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Wed Mar 14, 2018 9:48 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I would be interested to hear thoughts on these against RSS. I like the feel of the RSS mounts in the turbo as a focussed road car. They quietened down the chatter from the LWFW at idle and just made the back end feel a bit tighter. I was amazed as I wasn't expecting much. I was so impressed that I'm looking at new mounts for the C2 and C4. Being tight I obviously want best bang for my buck.

RSS or Torque solutions mounts will induce more noise into the cabin that's for sure.


that sounds perfect for my 16yo 996tt, it's solely a road car, but it does have a recent Bilstein PSS10 suspension.

I'll check out the guides to see how difficult it is to diy.

It's a very easy DIY, circa 1 hour taking your time.

Excellent, thanks for that.

Seeing some parts at a reasonable price is a pleasant surprise, I've just paid my local indy specialist nigh on £3k after buying my first Porsche Grin

chrikey uk996 that is a right result.

can you post up a pic of the engine mounts when you get them to make sure they are the RS ones and not OEM 996?

Thanks

I fitted torque solutions semi solids to the GT3 dan. check out the pic here:

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=126520

I am in the US a lot so just got them sent to hotel from a firm called Warehouse33. was about £250 all in with shipping an ex rate

they are defo firmer that's for sure and same as the RSS. back felt tighter and it makes the engine scream even more pronounced. tiny bit more NVH in cabin but GT3s are loud and proud anyway as you have thinner carpet and less sound proofing to keep eight down

you can put the 993 RS mounts onto a gt3 and will be firmer. I am going to put them on the blue baron.

Looks like I ordered the wrong mounts from carparts4less, got a very helpful email from Matt of Type 911 this morning advising me that I've in fact procured 930, pre 89 RS engine mounts.

So please avoid what I've done.

I think it was Type 911 and not Car Parts 4 Less who contacted him!

So, just about to order this kit...
http://type911shop.co.uk/epages/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766.sf/seca436385ab3/?ObjectPath=/Shops/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766/Products/8447

I'm a little confused as to whether longer bolts or different washers will be needed but will deal with that if necessary.

Thanks for the input all. Thumb

Just put some 964/993 RS mounts on my car and there is a slight but noticeable increase in the odd bit of vibration. Not very much, but definitely there.

The gear-change has tightened up a little as well (but I already had powerflex gearbox Mark-2 inserts anyway.

Old mounts were original OEMs and the change I would describe as a minor improvement; certainly not night-and-day.

Matthew from Type911 recommends longer bolts, 125mm M12, I've found 120mm BZP 8.8 steel bolts that should work fine.

I've purchased the 964/993 RS aftermarket mounts and seats from him (Type911).

I did wonder when I saw that and did think it was too cheap and too good to be true Wink

glad you sorted it out in the end and thanks for posting up the link to type911 kit.

Thanks for that, just what I wanted to hear. They have the pair for £96 or a kit with all bolts/washers etc for £125 - have asked them if these bolts are ok for 996 application.

McSwerve - did it make any harsher or noisier ?

Cheers


It's difficult to describe, for me they just made the back of the car feel more connected. After a few days it just then feels like the new norm.

I'm now looking forward the rewards of having my new Top Gear sports boxes fitted (courtesy of the group buy) and my suspension sorted at Centre Gravity in a couple of weeks. Then I'll be ready for the spring / summer!
