In response, I wound up ordering what I was searching for. Revshift gave me everything I wanted at a very good price.

here is what my old mounts looked like at 68k


this first pic is gtodrifters'. Im posting it up so you can see the difference in trans mounts












Im gonna go test the new ones out now.

that one in particular belongs to gtodrifter. i posted it up for comparison..

the one i purchased is exactly the same minus the revshift logo. so yes it is the same.

google revshift.. once on their homepage, click on the store tab and then find your vehicle on the menu on the left hand side..

i did not compare the two. i should have.. the stock ones are very fat and hard to to take out because of that..all i used is four jackstands, a jack, and a piece of 2x4.. the height of the motor appears to be the same but i cannot verify that without actually measuring. the oem bolts appeared to be a tad longer (because of the tips that stick out from the thread, check the pic) but the the motor seams to be at oem height.

ok so i installed them and drove around a bit.. wow.

First off, just looking at the motor, it sits still finally. As previously posted by another in the first page, the idle has slightly more vibration but once you get going its good.

The shifter now stays in place and doesnt take my hand with it. the 2nd to 3rd shift is now like butter. Also, no more shifter rattle.. it make a bit more vibration on the engage when the rpms drop under idle a bit.

finally, it is definitely easier to leave tire marks on the street. (not that it was that hard to begin with)

i am very happy with the hard mounts as they allow for more power in the future.

i wonder how much of a difference is there between the two urethane they offer, feel wise, that is.

it sounds like the right combination. enjoy!
i might just contact them to ask about the difference.

I need to do the trans and motor mounts. Unless I missed something, you can only get the three on a package deal from either Revshift or SCSS. Revshift was out of stock when I called them a couple days ago and they said to keep checking the website for stock status. That's the ones I want to get, 95A. They have a lifetime warranty for failure replacement but they are still a young company (2009 is what the site says). I haven't found just a trans mount.

i ordered the 23 of november and they arrived on the 10th of december.. but it was definitely worth the wait.. the Revshift trans mount looks superior to the SCSS in my opinion. As far as performance, I wouldn't know.

Chris, I think i might go with a new gm trans mount with the revtech trans mount insert. along with the standard height hinson engine mounts that i bought. But I think with all that hp that you have the harder mounts should work well for you ..

That Transmission mount looks pretty stout...Rev Shift makes that???

height of my 21K mile perfect shape OEM motor mounts (out of the car no compression due to engine weight): 2-3/4"
height of HSC STD height poly eurethane mount:2-7/8" (hardly noticeable but due to the nature of the mount it doesn mot collpase at all under the weight of the motor.
I have an OTR intake so I went with the HSC lowered polyeurethane mounts and they are perfect for OTR and put my motor at same height as my stock mounts...

OP's choice what he gets but the design of the HSC does not have the same void in the center as the RevShift cut away diagram shows.
