Question Spoon Engine Mounts - Liquid Filled like OEM?

Considering buying this set https://www.rhdjapan.com/spoon-sport...t-ap1-ap2.html

Are they liquid filled like OEM? I ask about this because I heard that mounts that are purely rubber, even though being nice and stiff will transfer too many vibrations to the cabin. Is that true?
Do these mounts enhance power transfer to the wheels and make shifting smoother/quicker? Basically, will it be in my better interest to buy these mounts to replace my now old OEM mounts or keep the old mounts and run an ETD? I think my driver's side (LHD's passenger side) mount has definitely had it...

Thanks.

The factory engine mounts are not liquid filled. The DIFF mounts are.

Then what is the "brown liquid-y stuff" some have described coming out of worn engine mounts?

The OEM mounts are liquid filled. I believe the spoon mounts are as well but they rubber is slightly stiffer than OEM so the mounts are stiffer overall.

Only OEM engine mounts are liquid filled.

I've got the Spoon mounts, the vibration isn't noticeable unless the AC is on and you are sitting idle, other than that they feel OEM.

So would vibrations from Spoon or Mugen mounts be too much to handle in car or hardly even there? I know these would give added performance benefits over OEM mounts as stated by those tuning houses.

Ha. Honestly didn't know the factory mounts were liquid filled.

I broke TF out of one on a track crash. Didn't notice any liquid. Maybe because my mount broke all of a sudden and the liquid is clear? If it broke over time, perhaps I would have noticed some residue.

Thanks for this. Does your car's driveline feel stiffer and how's quick shifting up top compared to your old mounts?
