MINI Cooper Motor MountEven in stock form the MINI Cooper Engine produces a lot of torque. The "S" model with the Supercharger produced far more than the stock Cooper but the new Turbo MINI Cooper S models probably has twice the original MINI Cooper. This toque really amounts to fun, the more torque the more fun. People often talk about horsepower and both the "S" models have lots of that but the real thing we feel that sets us back in our seat.
While this torque is one of the main reason we play with a MINI, it is also plays havoc with the Motor Mounts. The engine & Transmission mounts on the MINI that have a history of failure and typically they referred to as the Upper and Lower Engine Stabilizers or Torque Arms. We offer a number of solutions.
