I doesn't feel more connected to the road. It makes the engine feel more connected to the car. In other words, when you accelerate, you will feel a more immediate, direct response to the wheels. I noticed no increase in vibration at all in my manual trans.-equipped car, just a more "connected" feel to the engine.
All you need is the mount and a bolt, whether you buy the Mazda bolt or a hardware store bolt is up to you.
