sleepyboy Feel with your fingers under it where the rubber part meets the metal part, if it's separated it's bad. I forget how the top should feel, over half the time it may look ok or feel ok till you take it off and look at the bottom. I can just feel them and know if they are bad or not.

stromberg2 If the passenger motor mount top is squishy, is that a sign of it being bad?

sleepyboy Most likely it's the passenger side motor mount. That clutch combo is going to make noise as the other have said.

DEMENTED SVTF Vibrations = new mounts. As for noise and chatter that's what the aftermarket aluminum flys do on the svtf. No need to go above stock clutch/fly unless u are turboed with more than 200lb torq

1turbofocus A tune to help take the idle to 900 - 1050 seems to help that a log

If you have after market mounts and a Alum fyl then a tune is about your only shot at getting any kind of good quiet idle

If you dont have the funds for a tune you can unplug the Idle Air Control Valve (you will get a CEL) then set the idle to 1050 +/- to its gets quiet

This isnt ideal but it works in most cases

StephenElsbree1986 Confused you got a heavy duty clutch and light weight flywheel and don't want chatter? Beside mounts but bf out poly mounts will cause more vibrations

thehubster mine does the same thing and that is what I will be looking into when my wife and I get out house in January. Especially when it has a lot of miles.

Too much vibration at idle.

Hi so with my SVTF, i got a spec stage 2+ clutch and aluminium flywheel, i am getting very bad vibrations threw my steering wheel and When im idling with it in neutral (clutch out), i have chatter. I am trying to get rid of all excess vibrations/noises so it isn't obnoxious when idling. Any ideas would be very appreciated.

Thank You.
