Talking Mount inserts installed

Took 37 mins. It was so simple. After pulling out the mount, I pulled out the rubber inserts by tapping a flat head screwdriver in between the metal and rubber. Alittle leverage and *POP* out came the old ones. Used a rubber mallet to put the new ones in the mount and was done... no mess, cussing, screaming or burning. It does vibrate alot at idol. Not too bad though.

yeah, i just did the whole MAC mount not to long ago. love the off-the-line response, but i'm really amazed with how much it helps the top end. it does vibrate the HELL out of the car though, lol!

I hated the vibration, so I reinstalled the stock smaller bushing. No vibration and the engine stays put!
