just wondering which bushing you guys recommend from ipd, the softer blue one or the stiffer black one? I was thinking the softer blue one because in the winter it might get too stiff? Just wondering who has experience with these, seeing if I can gain some knowledge.

sry, both the upper engine mount and the tranny mount from ipd. i need to do both, considering i can shine a flashlight through and see tons of light.<p>also, any recommendations on sparkplugs and wires? i have an na s60 so not really concerned with performance, just reliability.<p>aaaand since im here, anything on fuel filters? also some info on changing the fuel filter would be nice (i never did it)

awesome, will do.<p>one problem though, i looked where turbos60 instructed but didn't see anything. I did a search and read a few things about actually not having an external, only an internal that never needs replacing. Is this right? Anyone have any pics of the external on the car?

Here's where it is on <i>my</i> car. (Although, I did read one story about a guy who had a fuel filter inside the tank... Seems quite rare.)<p><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SeEDUWwG1JI/AAAAAAAAArw/ZC7wjkagoQU/s800/IMG_1472_annotated.JPG" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SeEDVIFqwQI/AAAAAAAAAr4/ewRBDHJF4Ws/s800/IMG_1474.JPG" BORDER="0">

so i took a look and nothing, seems im one of the rare internal fuel filter cases. I'm 110% because the pic above shows it secured to the jack point and mine has nothing connected to the jack point. <p>Is it correct that internals never need replacing? That's what I read somewhere and just seemed odd to me...

no idea on the internal fuel filter question, but i have the softer blue(superpro) bushing from ipd, it takes a little bit of breaking in/heat to make it just right, but its about perfect now.<p>if your car is an auto, I would suggest getting a square volvo one.

Vibrations will be very little if any, but the motor will be held very firmly into place.

thanks for the suggestions. i ended up getting the blue tranny bushing since mine was fairly shot at 73k miles. I had my upper one replaced under warranty like 3 years ago and it's already on its way out, i can see a few holes in it so that one will be ordered soon. If i like the ipd blue mount il most likely get the blue upper engine mount soon. When it comes to vibration i don't really mind. I used to have a porsche 944 and it purred like a kitten. Wouldn' t mind if my s60 did the same.

A pillar, sunroof controls, valet parking clip, all in perfect harmony, at 3k rpm, imagine it. glove box too if you are lucky.<p>but i was unlucky and installed it during the winter so it took longer than normal to break in..

comes with both if you order just the blue poly bushing? id imagine you're speaking of the whole assembly that is also available for ordering?

Re: (volvo0toS60)

I would just get the whole tranny mount. Probably the small bushing on your mount is shot and when I tried to replace just the bushing on my stock mount, it just broke in half. iPd Trans mount is much better quality.<br>When you order the tranny mount, it comes with both, blue and black bushing

hmm, interesting. when i looked at the smaller one it looked ok but ill take a closer look when i get to switching it out. ill most likely just wait till this one wears out and get the whole thing.
