...  IME, the motor mount really isn't the primary problem wrt
cracking of the manifolds, either the single or the 2 pc.  The cracking,
results from the heat cycling of the manifold, causing warping of the EM,
which causes stress cracks on the manifold itself.  Stock turbo EM's tend to
not have any cracks, tweeked cars almost always do, single or 2pc.
