When we set out to build the perfect K swapped E30 engine mounts, we knew they had to be designed from the ground up specifically for this application.
Although we carry other engine mounts that could be adapted to work in this package, we felt strongly that our E30 mounts needed to use the OEM BMW mounting points, and the mount bushings needed to remain in the factory location on the subframe. The end result is a set of mounts that are almost too pretty to put on a car.
Due to the long length of the mount arms, 3/16” steel was the obvious material choice. Each steel plate used in our mounts is CAD designed, laser cut, and precision bent, and then welded in-house by our fabricator. They are powder coated locally and paired with OEM style 10.9 grade flange bolts.
Our mount arms rest on a set of the finest polyurethane BMW engine mounts from AKG Motorsport. These mount pads (Part #MM5030) have a durometer rating of 70A, which is the same hardness as the sought-after OEM BMW Group-N mounts (previously sold for $800 a set!). Stock BMW rubber mounts are 55A, so these mounts are perfect for customers looking for reduced engine movement in the chassis without compromising comfort.
AKG’s U.S. Military Spec compound is hard, and yet somewhat pliable, with elasticity and memory. The exclusive compound allows AKG to manufacture a mount with high performance characteristics that are free from the deformation that other mounts are prone to. Read here why AKG mounts are the best BMW mounts available.
Our mount arms are also compatible with other manufacturer’s 24 valve E30 swap mounts.
Note - these engine mounts fit the following engine blocks: K24A2, K24A3, K24A4, K24A8, K20Z3 and the JDM K24A. They do NOT fit K20A2, K20Z1, or K24A1 blocks due to incompatible bolt hole locations on the left side of the block. Please make sure you source the correct block for your project.
