stealthzx3 That makes me want one.

It affects all shifts. Because the engine does not move around as much, all shifts feel tighter and have less play. with my dog-bone and short shifter, it feels amazing.

sleepyboy You have to pull it forward to remove it. Once you unbolt it from the engine it will rock back and forth very easily. HERE is the how to with pictures. I did the inserts with no vice. Used a screw driver and hammer to knock out the old one and was able to push in the poly mount with my hands easily enough. I highly recommend Energy Suspension mount insert or the Massive one since it's the same mount just purple due to the design being better. I actually split a Prothane mount just recently which cause me quite some headache. It's actually cheaper to get the ES mount from them directly from Energy Suspension unless you want purple then get the Massive mount.

StephenElsbree1986 Yes it is worth it, no it isn't HARD persay. But I never installed one the process seems easy. Depends on if its the whole mount or just insert, you need a vice if you're just doing a massive upgrade. Correct me if I'm wrong but you just have to lift the engine/trans high enough to undo it get it out and put new part or unit in.

macdiesel I don't know what I meant. My iPad auto corrects words and sometimes doesn't make sense.

I agree with the dogbone being an awesome mod. The cfm race is well worth it too.
