FSWERKS RMM insert review

I placed my order Thursday afternoon and received the insert today (Monday).

That's quick shipping from California to Alabama.


Took an entire 20 minutes to install. Just jacked up the passenger side, put jack stands under the passenger side and went to work.

Install was EXTREMELY straight forward, as in I don't understand how it can take longer than half an hour to install lol.

I even removed a rock that was wedged next to the mount

Everyone talks about how flimsy the factory mount is but until you have it in your hands you just don't understand, after seeing how soft the factory mount is I was kind of regretting not buying a full mount but once the insert was in its strong enough you can't bend it and for 10 dollars it damn sure can't hurt.


First impressions after the install:

Very very slight vibrations in the steering wheel that were gone after 15 minutes.

Can tell a big difference on shifts from first to second and second to third when you are really getting on it. Feels a tad faster on acceleration too.

Best 10 dollar modification you can do

I got mine in about the same time, though just a bit further to Tennessee. I just installed mine on Saturday. Everything you wrote is pretty much word for word what I've noticed. Excellent mod!

Nice! I ordered mine over a week ago and haven't received it yet. But, I ordered a Stealth exhaust kit too and they're waiting on mufflers. Perhaps they want to ship it all out at once.

Thanks for posting results. Especially the amount of time necessary to install the insert.

Well I'm glad you posted that. I was about to order a Stealth also. But if they out I might have to look at going a different direction

I'll probably get one... the wife doesn't want a bunch of vibes, so I doubt I'll get away with a top or bottom replacement engine mount

She won't notice vibrations unless the vehicle is in reverse.

How does this insert compare to a focus with the electric mount swapped in? I would assume a small amount of extra vibes for the EMM
