Thanks. Will double check them soon. I recently acquired the downloadable 2012-13 Helms manual, and they suggest 60 ft/lbs, as does FSWerks here -- FSWERKS Polyurethane OE Mount Insert - Ford Focus 2012-2014 -- and technically I did 55 ft/lbs so I'm not far off. I believe Cobb are the only ones suggesting more, 70 ft/lbs for the factory vertical bolt and 75 ft/lbs for their supplied 10mm allen head main fastener.

It's much easier to finish on one, horizontal axis. 4) I was having a hell of a time finding torque specs, but found this (pic is an ST, but it helps): http://i.imgur.com/krXjTl2.jpg Since all my bolts were large 15mm, I went with 50 ft/lbs on all of them. They were very tight when I found them so I figured that was the best way to go.

My DCT is liking this new found stability. It's not necessarily a life changer (let's remember it's still a ~160hp power plant), but everything about accelerating and changing gears feels a little more confidence inspiring now. Well worth the money and time spent learning about my new car and demystifying working on it. Thanks again!
Same with my '13...all 15mm

I installed an adjustible cfm rmm with inserts you add....now this was with 5 inserts in,
but it idled smoother then stock! Im going to add the other inserts but it still wont be that bad,
its the upper mount that makes thing rattle like a SOB

It does seem like the motor does have some movement if I quickly shift. Is there a list of all the available ones and their respective durometer (hardness)? Thanks in advance!
