This is with the 88 inserts in.

Looks great! I was seriously considering that one. From what it looks like steeda makes some great parts for our cars.

Right around 700, the harsher vibes are between 1200-1500rpms.

everything on my car that is made by Steeda is top notch quality, price may be higher then some but I know everything was tested throughly and nothing was skimped out on.

Thanks, I was considering the Cobb unit like you have. But decided I wanted a stiffer mount and keep the Steeda theme going on the car.

I ordered the central Florida motorsports rmm and couldn't be happier with it. Install took 20-30 minutes and the ride is much more connected. Highly recommend for the manual cars! Also, I think cfm is a vendor on here. It ran me roughly $60 or $70 shipped.

So which one does everyone think is the best bang for their buck? As far as the ones made specifically for the car?

I'm not sure if "made specifically for the car" was meaning you're not looking at MS3 mounts... but I would. There are a lot of great vendors who also make MS3 mounts who are a direct swap over.

Hell, Cobb only made a MS3 mount because they made one for the ST and decided to also sell it to the Mazda boys.

When I was deciding yesterday while I was at CFM I was able to look over both the E-focus rmm, the Steeda mount and have had the MS3 mount. Best bang for your buck is the E-focus mount, since it's stiffer then the ms3 mount but won't be harsh. The Steeda is high quality and gives you options for the inserts.

Been riding with an MS3 mount filled with PL Premium haha. The vibs are only up a VERY little bit but at idle still very smooth. Night and day difference in shifting (DCT) and acceleration from a stop. Not a lot of testing yet but also virtually no wheel hop!

I bought the MS3 mount used for $40 so didn't cost much overall (left over PL).
