|TurboTechRacing||You will always have some vibrations. If you didnt have any vibrations your mount would then mean it is no more stiff compared to stock; meaning no benifit of engine moution control. If you just have the upper mount and no rear transmission mount upgrade, that may be part of the issue. One side is held firm while the otherwise remains to flop around. When this happens the movement from the "stock side" allows all that extra moevement to be stopped on the upgraded upper mount, thus resulting in more vibrations.|

Okay, so I wanted to report back. Been about 400 miles now and the vibrations haven't really changed. On initial startup they are bad around 1500 RPM until it dies down to about 1000 then they start to go away. At idle I don't really notice it. Driving, from a takeoff, accelerating at normal speeds, it vibrates quite a lot until about 3000 RPM. There is a lot less intense vibration on the highway but just cruising at 70 MPH foot off the gas I can't clearly see what's in my Rear View because its moving around too much. I'm honestly thinking I either did something wrong with install (Not sure how, it was pretty straightforward) or something is wrong here. I did get the mount from Joeywhat who has states a few pages back at post 198 that the vibrations have calmed down considerably.
My friends and I were talking and I had, about a year ago, upgraded my RMM to a stock Mazda3 one (That was when there was very little aftermarket support). My friend mentioned that its possible that the rubbers from both mounts are a different type and that could be the cause of more vibrations. I'm not sure what type of rubber is in that mount but would it be beneficial to either go back to the stock RMM for a little or upgrade to the Cobb RMM and see if that helps the vibrations?

32 is freezing :), less means sub zero to me... Below freezing.
Give it time maybe there wasn't as many miles on it as stated.

Well, most people in this topic said after a few thousand miles the vibes die down until they're practically un noticeable and the reason why I asked is because, even on my little drive I noticed them start to go away a little.
It isn't sub zero in Jersey today (30 I think) so I don't think that had too much affect on it... Maybe it just needs a little more break in time would be my guess lol

No it didnt get reset. My guess is it is broken in, and customer to customer acceptance to vibs are different. There is not a "meter" that tells you what the vibs are.
Keep in mind, if you have no/zero vibs, you would be no better off controlling movement over stock. You HAVE to firm it up to reduce movement in the mount.
Plus when it is sub zero temps, there are move vibs than when it is above freezing... The mount bushing does get harder/stiffer when it is cold.

So, I ended up picking up a used TTR Mount from someone and he said it had about 3l miles on it. Installed it today and it was, thankfully, a nice and easy install. I did not torque the bolts as my wrench wouldn't fit and I didn't have an extension handy but I just did a bit more than hand tight. I was aware and very much expecting some vibrations but I thought since the mount was broken in it wouldn't be so much and it was a lot.
Why does the mount need a break in time and because it was off a car for a good two months did the break in that was originally on it get reset?
Its not a big deal and I assume most of this vibration will go away but I was just surprised it was like a new mount since it has 3k miles on it lol
