One serious problem with the 997 Turbo (in stock form) is the fact that it uses really soft, “cushiony” mounts. They were primarily introduced to give the super car a more touring like driving feel, reduce engine vibration and cabin noise. This decision was a terrible mistake that was corrected in 2010 when Porsche introduced dynamic engine mounts, however RSS has come up with a perfect solution for the 2007 – 2009 cars.
RSS has developed a set of solid engine mounts that perform ridiculously well. Having these installed in my 2007 TT for close to a year, I can’t even imagine going back to the soft, spongy feel of the stock units. Turn in and turn out is dramatically better and more importantly acceleration, deceleration r any change in momentum happens almost instantly with no delay and no unexpected mass that you find yourself fighting corner to corner.
