Well now that people have realized that it's the same mount as the MS3 this could be a tough market... however people do typically prefer something that was "made for their application".

There are also a few pictures of the stock mount floating around now.... and it's more than obvious that needs to be addressed. Should be on everyone's short list IMO.

Whether I end up with an ST or a regular 2012/13. I'd definitely be interested. How about that G trac brace sold as a stand alone item?

I would be interested in the rear engine mount, but really interested in the Steeda G-Trac Front end Brace installed on the Steeda 001 FF.

What's wrong with the stock engine mounts?

Okay, I was looking for a mount that would allow the engine and transmission to feel more connected while still being refined. I also wanted options...

Soooo... I replaced the stock mount with a take-off MS3 mount that will allow me the option of installing poly inserts later. The results are excellent.

MS3 mount...

Stock mount... (almost totally rubber!)

Well, I understand the concept of going for stiffer engine and transmission mounts in general, but I mean is there something specifically wrong with the stock mount? Like has it been prone to failure or anything? Because IMO, softer rubber mounts are more than appropriate for a FWD economy car of modest power output that only sees street use.
