My bad. Yes, torque. IDK at what level solid motor mounts are needed either.
Chris recommends the HPF solid mounts which is the safest way to go really in say a Stage 3 HPF. I still would like to try the bimmerworld mounts first. I am willing to take a chance on them. I dont think they would have catastrophic failure. Its something that could be monitored?

In most cases I like guaranteed safe or overkill. Except when it comes to NVH. I want to try the least aggressive item that will still work. If the BW mounts lasted a year, it might be worth getting them. I forgot to ask Rob 43 using those mounts what his torque output was. In any event, the mounts look like a great place to start.
