Are these the bolt diameters for all the engine mounts? If not, does anyone happen to know what they are?

Please do not lecture me on the effects of temperature and density altitude on an internal combustion engine -Thank you.

I think all the Gen 1 were the same, so for your '03:

Front:
(2) 8mm X 70mm
(1) 10mm X 75mm

Upper:
(3) 8mm X 42mm

Rear:
(1) 10mm X 145mm

On a Gen 2 the two front 8mm would be a bit longer to accommodate the ridiculous ears.

I still held his automatic more or less pointed at him, but he swung on me just the same. It caught me flush on the chin. It was meant to be a hard one, but a pansy has no iron in his bones, whatever he looks like. -Philip Marlowe
