ChrisRobin Yup, took a while with my CFM one. I remember having to pry the transmission forward a bit, then I couldn't get the bolt holes to line up. It went in after a while of man-handling it.

That's pretty much the issue, I didn't have hardly any trouble slipping the mount in with the Prothane inserts. I had to get it just right to get the ES ones in. All I did was pull the tranny forward towards the front of the car. If you have to push up then the upper trans mount is probably worn out, they tend to sink over time and some even tear like mine did.

I highly recommend the ES bushing inserts over the Prothane ones or the Massive mount since it uses the same bushings or very similar bushings I should say, same design anyways. I ripped right through a Prothane mount where as the ES mount lasted years before ripping apart from age. Yes Poly mounts DO wear out lol.
did you pull the trans towards the drivers side? like i said i had the trans pushed upwards but not towards the drivers side hmmmmm

Sniper Focus The first time it took me four hours to put in, primarily because it was upside down, and I couldn't push it in either. I wasn't sure which way it went at the time. (the lip goes down) Since then it's been super easy for me, 10-15 mins to install, and I've done it multiple times.

Spray a little Armor All on the big bushing to make it slide in the frame and start the bolt. (Armor all makes dealing with exhaust hangers a breeze) After that use a prybar to move the trans so you can get the trans side bolt through.

The CFM one looks like it would slide in easily, it doesn't have a big rim on the bushing.

6SPD_soul It was an analogy. I don't find it helpful when people just say "it was super easy for me" and give no real advice. There are a ton of guys like that here, born with a wrench in their hands messiahs, all talking about how quick they get work done. I believe about a quarter of it, because I never see those particular people talking specifics about how to get things done.

And I'm probably a little defensive because it took me more than 15 minutes to muscle the g trans mount into place with new bushings. It took some finnagling.

jwill2489 What are you talking about. He's asking about a transmission mount

6SPD_soul There are always going to be guys that claim they change timing belts in 15 minutes, take it all with a grain of salt.
