    Hi All,

    Just wanted to ask a question please. Looking at online Honda diagrams the engine mount which supports from the top of the gearbox :


    engine mounts diagram EV1.

    Its part Number 1 in the above diagram.

    The rubber mount has a small split in it and I am going to replace it for a new one. The part is expensive from Honda coming in at about £112. The one off the Type-R is about £30 cheaper! also other people make them and so they can be had cheaper :Smile:

    Online with Honda the Type-R mount is shown as a different part number which suggests that it may be different. Does anybody know it the Type-R bush will fit the Type-S? I realize that they use different gearboxes perhaps that's the problem.

    Any suggestions would be helpful please. Thanks

    It like with everything you have to try it to see if it works, I would get the correct engine mount and do it once and be done with it.
