Default engine mountings and more fun?

are the engine mountings for 8v same as 16v, as i have been asked this but i thought the fronts were different, but with not having an 8v to compare i could not answer them.
and what parts can be added to make the car more fun to drive?>? i would have said a a bhp chip if these can be fitted in the 8v(1985) car in malaysia i am uk

I think the front mount is the same, but the side ones are different.

c900 8v and c900 16v is using different type of engine mounting, i guess the 16v engine mounting is better because is hydraulic mounting and improve design,in order to put the 16v engine mounting to 8v you need to use the 16v engine mounting bracket.

I had the exhaust-manifold-side engine mount off on my T16 whilst doing the head gasket, and it's definitely not a hydraulic mount. Just a (very) solid lump of rubber.

adrain, i'm not possitive but i think there is oil? in the middle?, as when i did my headgasket, i had forgot to undo the mounting again, and when jacked up engine to get manifold on and split it there was a load of oil inside, whether it had seeped in between base and rubber(if already u/s) i don't know, but i pressumed that was a hydraulic cushion?? mounting, probably completely wrong
