I got the mounts installed, and the car drives like brand new. I paid $14,000 for this car brand new, almost ten years later it still rocking!

Within a month I installed a new DMF flywheel, new clutch, new motor and transmission mounts, new HID lights, new HID fog lights, new rack & pinion, new power steering pump, new thermostat, new water pump, and new fan relay switch.

The great thing is that this engine has 220,000 miles, and there is not an oil leak to be found. I changed the first oil at 3,000 miles, and I've been using Mobil 1 10W30 Synthetic ever since. I change the oil every 10,000 miles
