I'm happy that there's so much discussion about it though. It was what what helped me decide which mount to get.

Do this on a semi-wet or rocky surface and you'll FEEL the "kick" we are talking about.

It feels as if the motor is slamming into the firewall.
QFT. You won't experience the "kick" during regular day-to-day driving... It's only when you do some "spirited" driving.

Since I swapped in the e-Focus RMM, I actually noticed the motor rocking less on-and-off throttle in parking lots. Company parking lot is "limited" to 15kph.

Seminoles You will notice a difference when chirping 2nd on the DCT. It's not for everyone just a cheap performance mod if you like Lincoln's then leave it stock.

Could you detail exactly the changes you're seeing? How do you notice less engine movement with the DCT? I installed the e mount a week ago and have noticed no change in the power train performance.

I can understand a night and day situation with a manual since the shifts are relatively slow leaving lots of time for engine movement. But the lightning quick shifts from the DCT leaves virtually no time for engine movement doesn't it?

Needless to say I was skeptical going into it but given the low expense decided to give it a chance. I was disappointed.

Can somebody tell me the torque specs again? I know they're in this thread somewhere but I'm already tired of scanning for it. Since I recently forked out the money for the wrench, I might as well use it and get it correct.
Done.
