Do you feel a vibration between 900 - 1200 rpm? I installed a StreetUnit billet aluminum MS3 mount on my Focus, and even after over a week, the vibration at those rpm hurt my teeth. I just got my stock MS3 mount today, hope to install it this afternoon, and of course I'm already thinking about an insert.

It is in that range but nothing major at all! You feel it in the steering wheel slightly and through your feet. But it is nothing that would hurt your teeth lol. At time it feels like you are about to stall but that is the worse it ever gets. I am trying to find time to go for a longer drive this week to keep breaking it in! I will let you guys know!

I took my inserts out. This engine is not nearly as smooth as the 2.3 Duratech/MZR/MS3 engine. They broke in a little, but not enough for my tastes (daily driver).

The stock MS3 mount is just right IMHO.

But if I were younger, it wouldn't be a big deal.

I think the stock MS3 mount is just fine, even with my current set up. I have had stiff mounts in my old focus and ION and sitting there with the car vibrating enough to make you think you have seat massage's is only cool for so long lol

Haha I have to agree, if the vibrations don't go away I will definitely take them out. But we will see what happens!!

Vibrations I can handle. My SpecV had Energy Suspension inserts in every mount, and it wasn't that bad. But the SU mount I had literally shook the rear hatch shelf off of its pivots. It made CDs skip! The guys I work with thought I was just being a wuss, until I let one of them drive it. Then they understood. I hope to get my MS3 mount put in today.

Haha wow yea it is no where near that level! That is insane! You will be happy with the stock one, no vibrations at all, and only slight ones with the corksport inserts.
