The WEVO 9A1 SS Racing Engine mount is designed for competition cars and offers maximum class legal control of the drivetrain mass - without concessions to NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness). This competition series mount is installed within the original Boxster or Cayman 9A1 series motor mount, re-using the die cast aluminum housing and flat, 2-ply elastomer pendant style isolator flaps that flank the mount (amber side towards WEVO mount). Unlike Solid engine or transmission mount systems, the Semi Solid installation provides sufficient isolation from engine vibrations to protect your sensitive engine control electronics and instrumentation systems, it also complies with Technical Regulations that forbid solid engine mounts.
The WEVO 9A1 SS Racing Engine mount uses a 3 piece design, where the pair of silver anodized aluminum hubs are completely isolated from the O.E. alloy housing by the elastomer pillow (orange). This flexible interface between the two solidly mounted brackets - engine and chassis - is the key to managing destructive vibrations from being transferred between systems.
The WEVO 9A1 SS Racing Engine mount is approved for competition by Grand-Am and in conjunction with the WEVO SS Boxster Transmission mounts offers a class legal solution with significantly higher level of drivetrain control than any combination of OE parts.
The WEVO 9A1 SS Racing Engine mount is not recommended for "Tuner" or street driven, performance upgraded cars. For those cars we recommend the Original Equipment engine mount, paired with the WEVO SS Boxster Transmission mounts.
The WEVO SS Racing Boxster Engine Mount is suited for the following applications:
2.9 Boxster / Cayman 2009 and newer
3.4 Boxster S / Cayman S 2009 and newer, 9A1 Engine type.
