I'd say, that XFi isn't an XFi but a badged one.

Any engine mount from the same spot on a 3 Cylinder 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994 Geo Metro with the autotragic transmission will do the job.

Technically speaking as well, it's not called an engine mount, but a Torque Strut Mount for the Auto trannies.

Go to http://www.rockauto.com go to the part number search and look for:

Anchor #8658

A true Xfi was 1.0L 3cyl, 5sp manual, 3 dr hatch. Unless someone swapped out the tranny and basically threw away all of the MPG, 55 to at the very best of 40... I have a dealer badged GT. 8)

That part you speak off is also suzuki part # 11620-60E21 and is no longer available in the USA or Canada. You can get them in Jamaica (US$60) or what I did was use a Nissan Mount (had to search for the right diameter and thickness) and cut out the old one and insert the Nissan one into the bracket and clamp and weld it back.

Anchor #8658 is NOT the part you are seeking.
westar EM-8314 is NOT the part you are seeking.

Is this the photo of your part?

Since the guy was only on here two days, (and almost 4 years ago) I doubt you are going to get a reply. However, it was nice of you to try and help.

FYI :
- there are NO automatic XFI's.
- He lists his location as USA, so he's pretty unreliable or super paranoid.
-his is either an MR model with an XFI badge on it or an MS model which has been converted to auto.
-MS and MR are two letters in the VIN, right?

If this fly by night member is still out there, "bunny" (which I doubt), thanks for joining, asking a question and leaving...(mostly the last part).

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

I did it for others in the future as it took me a while to find that part for myself and 2 other cars that needed it over the past 2 years. I have found this forum to be an absolute wealth of knowledge even for older posts.
